Honda VFR titanium and 7075 alloy components

Just about finished making some parts for a VFR Honda, and very nice they are too! In fact yet again i’ve changed my mind, I don’t want to sell them!

The 7075 alloy parts are at the anodisers for hard anodising clear, when i get them back i’ll be able to cut the threads on the swinging arm shaft and job done. I prefer to anodise threads before cutting the corresponding thread, even though the anodising is only 25 microns or so, with and ingrowth of 50% it still affects the tollerence on threads, so for the swinging arm shaft which is titanium i’ll cut the threads on it after the nuts have been treated.
