Titanium Yamaha R1 front wheel spindle and suspension bolts

Then after i’d finished all the alloy stuff i went back to titanium to make a font axle and suspensions bolts for an early Yamaha R1. The earlier models have an external thread whereas later models have the end of the spindle tapped and a bolt to match.

The front spindle as standard had a tommy bar hole through and extended beyond the fork leg, i’ve done my usual modification and put a hexagon socket in the end, makes it all neater, sexier and lighter!
