I’ve just made some bolts to hold a Jaguar together. Although weight isn’t as much of an issue on most cars, the none corroding properties of titanium make it the ideal metal for holding important bits of cars on, particularly on the undercarriage where its subject to lots of damp nastiness.
I’ve just finished a titanium oil cooler bolt, oil line connector, drive sprocket nut and suspension bolts for a Yamaha R1, jolly tasty they are too! When you’re making stuff in titanium everyday you can sometimes loose sight of how wonderful looking the stuff is, although some parts seem to have an extra dose of good looks when made in […]
Its that time again where those good chaps at HPS need resupplying with titanium drive pins to go with their marvellous BST wheels for those that want. and here they are:
Here’s a pair of 7075 alloy wheel spindles, bearing spacers and nuts for an NSU. They are now down at Moss’s for Surteck 650 coating. Four of the spacers are ISR calliper spacers, my customer has fitted different forks and bigger discs so the radial callipers need spacing out to accommodate this.
Just made a set of titanium engine mounting bolts for a Kawasaki ZX10, they’re going to be used in competition so i can’t say much more. But they are quite nice! The longest bolt is 210mm.
These M8x55 hex head bolts are for a push bike, I had a push bike once, it was called a BSA Bantam! I pushed it more than i rode it as it wasn’t very reliable. These bolts are standard 13mm A/F as they are captive on the heads so i couldn’t breath any magic onto them to make them lighter.
Here’s some engine mounting studs i’ve whipped up for a Weslake. I’ve done a couple of sets of these now, they are worth doing for the weight saving and strength.
Phew, just finished a shed load of fasteners and bits and pieces for an R1. All very fiddly. In with this lot are casing screws, oil pressure release valve (customer is getting it coated) and an unidentified piece!
