    I have an offset cog on the rear of mine as well, but left the 68mm BB. Where the chain passes the seat-tube, and rear fender, I was getting chain rub pretty bad. I wound up doing as you were suggesting you may do if chain stretch occurs......the clear 3m chainstay protector. Works well. Looking nice.
    Yeah I remove the stock BMX us bottom bracket shell installed 100 mm bottom bracket shell and threaded inserts for English thread. The chain is about an inch and a half away from the box. Also the dropout distance on the motor is 155 mm so I had to spread the rear dropouts and then straighten them. I filled in the upper slots so that way from the force of the motor and the hydraulic disc brake bend it or pulled apart. I TIG weld an IS mount on the rest. Because of the wider Dropout and the offset COG and 100 mm bottom bracket shell it put me in The Sweet Spot perfect chain line I doubt the shame will rub even if it wears but I'm still going to put that clear protection vinyl like you said I'm going to end up put it on both sides just because my shoe rubbing up against it can scratch it. They sell clear vinyl wrap near my house.

    thanks again for checking it out I'll be adding more pictures and video

        Thanks I appreciate it, she's running amazing nice and smooth with the speedster tires. Can't wait to get powder costing done and some air brushing.

        I'm finally finished with mine, I have been commuting back and forth to work for over a month now. I wanted to make sure there are no mechanical problems before I go ahead and get it powder-coated and then airbrushed. I'm finally satisfied with all those fabrication I ended up going with the Maxxis hookworm tires, wishing my opinion look better and ride better and have much more grip.. next weekend it's going to the powder coater and then to the paint booth for some Custom Airbrushing.

        here's the last bare metal picture I'll have of the bike before I tear it down for Powder Coating.

        Excited :)
