Montesa titanium wheel and swinging arm spindle set
I’ve just finished making a spindle set for a trials Montesa. I’ve done a few of these for that most excellent man Mark Devine at H&D Racing, next up is a 7075 alloy set to be tested in use.
i’m pleased with these, even though i’ve been tinkering with titanium for 15 years now i still learn new things, this time i’ve approached drilling them in a slightly different way which has proved better, you get the same result – a big hole down the middle, but it makes the process a bit easier, not quicker though unfortunately!
The front wheel spindle is for designed for use without a speedo drive unit, so the fat end is 15mm longer to take up the space occupied by the speedo unit.
