After bailing out the workshop i cracked on with a pair of 7075 alloy fork top bolts with titanium adapters. The thread is 12×1.5.
There is a man out there who wants to try a 7075 alloy front wheel spindle in his R1! Good on yer! I’ve made it with some safety in mind, the original is bored about 16.5mm so i’ve bored this one 1/2″.
Been making 7075 alloy wheel spacers today, and a titanium suspension bolt. believe it or not i haven’t a clue what bike they are for! I was told but have completely forgotten! I love working with 7075, i keep going on about it i know but its just so nice! not as nice as titanium though, but lots easier to […]
All done and packed ready to go. These were hard to do, not complex just HARD! But they are worth it in my eyes. There is only one nut as my customer already had a titanium nut for one of them. He had to send it as a pattern to screw cut the threads to so i could get the […]

I’ve been busy! on with a pair of titanium rear wheel spindles for a Hyabusa. They are big, very big. not quite as big as drag bike rear spindles, the last one of those i did was 450mm

And there’s more! another 7075 alloy Amal carb jet holder, carb clamp bolt and some dome nuts. this holder was even more complex than the others i did, and therefore proportionately more fun to make! i had to make some simple jigs for it so i could machine both ends. they are off to the anodisers for hard anodising in […]
