Buell titanium spindles and bolts

Just nearly finished a set of spindles and brake mounting bolts in titanium for a Buell. I would have finished but theres another set of socket cap bolts to go with this lot, they are made with just the sockets to broach in the heads, unfortunately when i started broaching them I was a bit overenthusiatic with the press and the broach exploded into smithereens on the first one! So i’m just waiting for the new one to arrive and i can finish the job.

It all went swimmingly well, though to say the shaft on the rear spindle is 25mm it had a fair amount of deflection to get rid of and it took a while to get it just right, and just right it is! The original spindle had a 24mm thread on the end and a mouses ear hole through it, i made the threads 25×1.25 so i could bully a man size hole down it! its now bored 19mm throughout. Proof of the pudding is the original weighs 1035g with all its washers and nut, mine weighs 321g complete! thats a lot of pies.

The original front spindle weighs 587g as opposed to mine at 167g, another fine saving!
