The Rear Wheel Alignment Research Program

Making a mag wheel dressed in a car tire with a 1967-72 brake fit a Knucklehead frame required a lot more measuring and stuff than I hoped. I have no idea how to do this, but at least a steel scale ruler and magnetos makes it look like I know what I'm doing so that's good enough for me.

The rear wheel spacer was fun to do because for the first time ever I found a piece of aluminium with just the right OD, and to celebrate that I cut two different radiuses.

I had to polish the spacers for the backing plate and wheel only because Peter Longhair told me a real chopper needs to be shiny and I don't want to disappoint him.

And this is what it looks like aligned and mounted, when I finish this bike I want to ride it until the end of time.
