Mistake in bike customizing
Mistakes
Mistakes - it happens to all us. I thought that instead of making pages with just the right things happening, maybe I should also make a page with the wrong things happening.

So, enjoy the pics and the side comments as I show you places where I went wrong :-)
Well, I've got my VT800 wheel, taken off my stock VT1100 wheel, so far everything looks good. The splines on the flange gears match up, brake drums match.

Okay, got the VT800 wheel on,
spline fit in,

looking good so far...
Looks good on this side also -

pretty happy so far...
CRAP!! The VT800 hub is WAAAY too narrow - and no spacer will ever make it look right or correct the balance...

back to the drawing board!
