Front sprocket

Well I tryed the 15 tooth front sprocket. The chain can't feed thru with it there is no room I don't know how guys get it to work but I doesn't work for my bike. But I am keeping the 30 tooth on the rear wheel. As that's said my bike is done. It took me about 9 months to make it.

It seems that the 15 tooth works on some bikes but not others. I put one on one of my '85's and it fit with no problems. Others have said they could not make it fit. Might be the way they are machined - one having deeper cogs than the other? I don't know, I think the one I bought was a JT sprocket but can't be sure now.

I've also heard that the chain may be at fault. Thicker chains bind.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Yes you are right flight. I didn't realize it but I bought a heavy duty chain. With a stock chain I should just clear but I'm afraid the bike will be horribly underpowered. Especially since I live near Pittsburgh with alot of hills. I road tested the bike it rides nice Ill keep the 14/30 for now. This winter I might take the bike apart again to cut some brackets off the frame that aren't in use and I'm thinking of fixing the original cylinder head.
