As I said when I started this thread, it is going to be a very slow process, since I am trying to do this in my spare time at minimal cost. The overwhelming issue (other than a lack of free time) is that everything affects everything else, and I am REALLY trying to think through all the steps in order to not waste resources on fabbing something in such a way that it doesn’t work down the line.
Also, I am trying to fabricate/modify stuff without spending too much on tools. For example, I devised all sorts of cunning ways to accurately and easily enlarge the rear wheel slots in the swingarm by the required 2 MM, but in the end I just carefully used a Dremel tool. It was time consuming, and could have potentially screwed up my swingarm, but it cost me nothing to do.
