Smile wide glide small problems!!

hi guys finally getting round to chopping the sporty!! had some mid glide trees made 8.5 inch centres and need some advice on spacing wheel and getting a new axle made. Firstly, do i space the rotor or the caliper? what length of axle do i need i think it maybe 30mm over length but not sure! how do i go about spacing the wheel to centre it ? does it need to have any l/r offset? wheel is standard 21 inch
cheers guys

Well this is how I would do it.

1. You want the tire centered.
2. Place the wheel/tire on the axle with no spacers and place in the new frontend.
3. Center the tire and make measurements for the axle spacers. They may not be the same size because of hub offset.
4. Pick your caliper mount and use a hub/rotor spacer to bring the rotor out to the caliper position.
