Here is a pic of the motor and tranny mounts the top one is a tranny mount the two tabs are not necessary they were for mounting something else.
the bottom pic is the major mount this holds the front of the trany and the whole motor. This plate bolts where the bottom transmission bolts to the engine. Two tabs are welded to the bike frame, the plate bolts to those tabs it locks everything together I haven't noticed any twisting or flexing it also stiffens the frame up
I have a front motor mount but it is more of a stabilizer bracket than a mount.

sprokets: In this picture you can see the sprockets are the same size unlike most motorcycles the reason is the rear tire is the same size as the associated porsche tire. therefore the final gear ratio in the tranny is what the tire diameter is designed for. upon riding I will determine weather to up the front sprocket diameter because this pig will have so much tourqe that you can probably start off in any gear. The bug that the motor came from would spin the tires in all 4 gears. the rear rim is a vw sand rail rim and a customized ghia disk brake hub.
