Here’s a pair of titanium wheel spindles for a Honda SP2. I’ve done my usual modification on the head, the original extended beyond the fork leg and has a tommy bar hole through it to hold it whilst tightening the nut, my way is to finish the axle flush with the fork leg and broach a big hex in the […]
Theres been a flurry of activity recently for 6082 alloy steering damper knobs for BSA Goldstars. This one is going to Germany and includes a titanium rod and a I.O.M. badge for the centre. The next blog has another 6 which will be going to stock the Goldstar Owners Club.
These are a pair of titanium M14x1.25 plain nuts that i’ve made for a customer in Australia. I’ve recently bought a new expensive Tapomatic tap holder and (selected) colletts to help with tapping titanium, its helped a bit but its still ridiculous stuff when it comes to tapping threads! 1.25 pitch isn’t so bad though as its only shallow.
H&D Racing have sold out of titanium engine mounting and top shock bolts for Montessa’s, so its time to re-stock them. Here are 4 titanium engine mounting bolts and a pair of titanium top shock bolts.
This is a titanium swinging arm bolt for a Honda Bros i’ve recently cooked up. Its M14x1.25 and drilled all the way through.
These are M12x1.25 flanged hex head titanium bolts for a Lotus (car!). Lovely.
These are the titanium front wheel studs with 7075 alloy nuts for Triumph triples. They’re 3/8 UNF thread and waisted full length between threads. Not as complex as the rear wheel studs to make but well worth doing for strength and lightness.
These are titanium rear wheel studs for Triumph triples, not standard wheels though. They are quite involved to make with the 2 thread sizes and various diameters, and take a lot of concentration to get them all the same. The nuts are 7075 alloy.
We decided to try 7075 alloy for mounting the engine in the frame in the Triumph triples. I think they’ll be ok but they haven’t been tested yet, so they will be given a damn good thrashing
Here are the titanium rear wheel axles with 7075 alloy nuts as part of the work i’ve been doing for Triumph triples. The spindles are of course drilled hollow but i’ve fitted steel plugs in the ends to give that ‘air of authenticity’ that is required at times.
