Looks sweet. Also seems like you have quite a bit of work left....Is the caliper and pulley going to fit on the same side? or is that going to be a brake disk and a chain conversion?

Keep us up to date!

Dig the after pic much better. Tell me about the pipes. I've also always wondered how well those sproters work with a freshly oiled chain.
