Thx for the feedback. I was just curious if anyone else has experienced this issue with the bike. It doesn't seem like it was meant to be aligned. So it is either right or it is not. But as I have taken the rear half apart I get the impression the previous owner dropped it at least once. I will let you know if my shimming of the drive hub and swing arm works out. It's gonna be a few weeks/month or more, before I'm done. I'm repainting the bike and adding a new bluetooth stereo system. It's gonna be the shitz! Once I get all the rust off of it. Though it is not nearly as bad as yours was MarCarl.
