Nice innovative thinking. Those cab bags usually need some serious weight on them to not rebound too quickly. Don't get bucked off on your first ride. Nice work.

I'm not understanding the need for a chain tensioner. With that crossshaft setup you've effectively reduced the length of that final drive chain. There is definitely some new to me thinking going on here in this build. I am eager to see how it rolls on the road. Those axle adjusters are unlike anything I've ever seen. Seems very difficult to adjust, and rather fragile.

You definitely need some rigidity to the rear motor mount setup. You want to support that cross shaft independently, as well. Without some support the vibration seems like it would pulverize your relatively fragile aluminum cases.

Did you convert to left shift yourself? Factory 750s came left shift as I recall.

Overall a really neat project with some original thinking. I want to see this one succeed.
