I dont know if it will work with the oilyerear. Why not, though, you can make anything, as Paul might say. In fact he was mentioneing making on for the oilhead bikes

Man, it is the thousand bucks in offsetting a rear x 2 that is offputting. I dont even know what a Rooney frame will price out at, even for rough budget numbers.

Ugh! All that makes me think that I should either not be stupid and just put a regular decent R100 motor in it...

Or I should go full stupid and do all that R65 motor crap, as well. You only live once this lifetime. They probably wont even have airheads in the next one... it'll be all hovercraft or something.
Unintentional psychokinesis.
