Building fatcat BW rear hub advice needed

Need a bit of advice on hub building.I've got a BW200 front hub.The plan is to convert it to a rear hub so i can fit a 8" rim on it.
For now i have 18x9.5x8 tyre mounted but am plannning on going up to a 20x9.5.The bike is only a light weight small engine weapon.
My question is about sprocket carrier and rim mounting plate.I will remove the original rim mounts.What would be a good thickness flat plate to use to make the carriers ?

BW hub



Fattie tyre

If it was me, (and it isn't) I would probably keep the existing wheel mount. I would make a sprocket hub from a disc of 3/8" steel. Bore that disc to fit over the axle tube, and turn it so there is a boss to locate the sprocket on. Drill and tap some mounting holes. Space the sprocket hub from the wheel mount with 3-4"? pieces of steel, or 3-4" tubing and weld up. Try to make it so it isn't a mud holder. Oh, maybe that is why you want to loose the existing wheel mount. Sounds
like a fun project.

Jock Adams has a good design and set up with a postie and a Big Wheel he is taking across Australia

PM me if you want his details





This is a BW350 swing arm picture below. I have some other BigWheel info here if you want it

Perry that single swingarm of jock's is way cool.
To jock eh
Is he going this year?

I'm just trying to make a postie into a fatcat ,conventional twin shocker/swingarm and wide triples.Been collecting parts and info for a while, better do something with them.
I think i better buy a lathe

Cheers

hi will what are you using for a front end ? atc125 or similar ? i've been tossing this around for a while too. i'd even contemplated building a frame from scratch. that single sided setup of jock's is sexy! and yes, buy a lathe. handiest tool ever.

Gday Coxy.
I have a set of atc350 triples that i am going to chuck the postie stem in.Then i can use the cr80 forks i have on the postie.Also did a little adjustment to the rear pivot point.I mistakenly put it in the wrong frame i am building a jig for the swingarm and one for redrilling the pivot point.Joe is doing me hub.I will start a build thread soon.
