Triumph triple 7075 alloy fastners

Just finished some 7075 alloy parts for Triumph triples. Apart from the swinging arm end caps all the rest are engine internals. There’s a plethora of nuts as there will be a load more studs next week, i’m just waiting for the bar to arrive so i can make them. The stator towers took some concentration as they all need […]

Yamaha R1 titanium exhaust studs with 7075 alloy nuts

I’ve made a set of titanium exhaust studs for a Yamaha R1 and 7075 alloy nuts to go with them. The studs are M8 thread into the head but M7 to take the nuts.

Honda 500/4 and 350 twin titanium parts

I’ve been working on some titanium parts for 500/4 and 350 twin racing Hondas. They are the sprocket drive pins, engine mounting studs, chain adjuster studs, front fork spindle cup studs and rear brake cams. The cams were fun to make, if a little taxing! I’ve also made some tappet adjuster nuts in 7075 alloy.

1/2″-M12 titanium Matchless engine mounting studs

It would have been incredibly difficult to turn it down to 12mm over that distance leaving a good and accurate finish.

Titanium Buell parts

No problem to me as i can cut just about any thread you care to mention, but you can’t get off the shelf titanium […]
