Sanders and Lewis Suzuki GT750 titanium and alloy spindle and engine mounting set

I’ve been busy! Making a titanium wheel axle and engine mounting set for a Sanders and Lewis Suzuki GT750. What can be 7075 alloy is and what can’t be is titanium.

The OEM rear axle had a massive integral head and weighed a ton, so i made the replacement as a straight shaft with 7075 alloy nuts for each end, same for the front spindle.

The OEM rear spindle complete with spacers and nut weighs 1247g, my titanium replacement weighs in at 410g complete, front spindle OEM is 624g, mine is 238, the shorter engine mounting bolt and spacer is 217g, mine is 89g, and the longest is 325g with mine at 147g.

The original spacer had a tin plate dust shield welded onto it, so with these i made them from solid with the dust shield incorporated.
