what is the best way to adjust mtn bike frame rear hub spacing for conversion to 3-spd coaster brake rear axle? Answered

looking to build a 3-spd coaster brake chopper with steel mtn bike frame. Need to reduce rear axle spacing from 135 mm to 120 mm to accommodate the new wheelset. How?

you need to find 2 spacers 7.5 mm wide to fill the space between the frame and the hub.. A bike shop may have it or you may find it at a hardware store or you may have to have it cut at a machine shop.
