Harley Davidson titanium rear wheel axle and suspension mounting bolt

Posted by on Nov 24, 2016 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

As the title says this is a titanium rear wheel spindle and suspension mounting bolt for a Harley Davidson, not sure which model, but it’ll be from a heavy one. I love making these big axles, they are really hard work, tricky and riddled with the opportunity to scrap well over £100 worth of titanium at every stage of production, but when finished they are glorious! Forgive the watermark, i’ve had to reinstate it after finding a Chinese company has been ripping them off to use to illustrate their own products. Can’t trust anyone these days.  ...

Titanium rear axles with 7075 alloy nuts

Cheese is one of my favourite foods, but having a brain made from the Swiss variety gets frustrating! Here’s a pair of titanium rear spindles with 7075 alloy nuts but I can’t remember what they are for!

So 1st prize to the 1st person who can tell me what bike these are for! The tapping in the end is to fit crash bobbins.    ...

Titanium Shimano brake bolts and 7075 alloy catch nut and washers

A while ago I made these titanium brake bolts and 7075 alloy catch washers and nuts for a set of early Shimano brakes for a pedal bike. The bike is about 25 years old I think so all the brake parts are unobtainable as well as bent!
