back on the chain gang

So after snaping the belt drive on my bike I manned up and did what I should have done in the first place: convert it to a chain drive. It was a messy install, but the bike runs better and in my opinion looks a lot better than it did with that tired old rear sprocket. Yep, I should have messed with the gearing to make the bike quicker at low speeds, but I thought it best just to stick with the stock ratios.

And I know the chain is a bit too loose in this shot - it has since been tightened up and is much better
