Yeaaa! eBay's snail mail is here, one day late, Harley sprocket 46T and flat head bolts for recessing to get a little closer to the swing arm side.
Dropped off at the machine shop for countersinking, This is why I bought a painted sprocket, did not want to cut up the chrome, so I'll just paint it the trike color RED, should be finished tomorrow then set up the wheel to swing arm and then back to the upper frame rails...EDIT: Thank You XR7locost, Chuck, for the countersinking suggestion)...

Back from the machine shop with the countersinking finished and trial fit,
Now I have 3/8 (.375) side clearance form sprocket to swing arm plus 1/2 the sprocket is .150 so this gives me .525 for 1/2 the chain, which is about 1.000 wide total,
Measured the length for the axel spacers on each side, now to re-do the mounting bracket since the upper frame rail is going to be wider so that's next with the upper rails themselves widened, then to the jack shaft, more measurements tomorrow (Sunday) then Monday off to my steel supplier for swing arm brackets 3/8? this time, and some tubing for the swing arm push rod and to figure the bell crank. :cheers:

Paint every other bolt going in the red sprocket blue instead of all of them being white... 'Murica!!!

The color, I want a medium red shade that can be seen from a distance.
Working on the paint for the swing arm now, and yes I remember the caliper bracket weld on, but later. I have to rely on rattle can for now...

Hmmmmm!!! Maybe orange?
Do you think a red chain might be too much? heeheehee Tomorrow is off to the machine shop for more little pieces of the frame to swing arm and the changing of the rear frame width rails.

I've been following this build since it's origin.
I seen the swing arm set up with the coilover in single shear. I wasn't comfortable with that set up, but I held my tongue.
When you flipped the swing arm over and applied the 2 coilovers in 'double shear' so to speak, I said to my self, "Self, he just answered his own question"
That's the way I would build it, my 2 cents for whats it worth

Thank you, But, with a Reverse Trike the name of the game is to keep the weight low (cg) and I agree with your input, I'll play with it some more this week...
