If you go the monolever route, you will probably end up in the same ballpark, to use a 140 tyre the wheel needs to be spoked out of center 10mm or more.
thats destroyed an urban myth for me that the 1100 paralever sucks because of the offset!
how does it ride with the engine move to the right? Is the assumption right that engine move has less effect on handling than the offset you are curing?
My take away from your comments are that since I have my frame with the TAG guys anyway, I might as well move my engine mounting and get the vespa vibe. This will give me less offset with a 140 set up on a monolever and will give optionality for a para conversion.
