Ducati titanium suspension linkage sleeves

These were tricky little fellows to get accurate, 40 x 12 x 10. ended up drilling them undersize and reaming them out then turning the od.

Today i’m making some 6082 alloy steering damper knobs for BSA Rocket Goldstars ready for the show tomorrow. I’ve done a few of these now and i try to make each one slightly different so they are individual to each bike, the main dimensions are the same but i alter the number and size of the holes. Turning alloy makes a change to titanium as its almost at the other end of the spectrum of hardness, but it has its own idiocyncracies to be taken into account. I’m looking forward to today!
