I swapped out the banjo wheel (which I still have) to a smaller wood wheel like a lot of people do. I'm not as svelte as I once was. The larger wheel also caused some throttle control issues. I gained some more clearance by mounting he seats directly to the floor. You appear to have some cross members running under the seats. is that raising your seats up?

Yep. I wanted mine on steel with nothing protruding through the floor and so here we are. The good news is you can always just cut them out if need be, or eliminate the slider in favor of a couple 3/16 bits of flat stock, which would gain about 3/4 or an inch.

As is, I fit OK; still had a notch of adjustment to move back when I left it last night. Tonight I adjusted the pedals back today and drilled my steel frame bits to move the seat about 1/2 inch to the right (it was just barely rubbing the frame tube after the reupholstery job).

I'll test fit again before final assembly but for now I think it's gonna be alright.
