I’ve done a set of titanium spindles and again i’m not sure what they are for! But they are nice so i guess it doesn’t matter too much! The sprocket nuts have a 45 degree taper on the back, the originals were 13mm A/F so i’ve done these 12, just because.
I’ve just finished a titanium spindle set for Montessa trials bikes. The set comprises front and rear wheel spindles and swinging arm spindle including rear wheel and s/arm nuts, the front spindle screws straight into the fork leg so there is no nut for that one. Unfortunately in my rush to get it to the post office the photo’s i […]
Here’s a bunch of titanium sprocket drive pins for BST wheels, they fit all dual sided BST wheels apart from KTM ones. They are available through Harwood Performance Source, www.bikehps.com, 01773 831122. Ones to fit KTM BST wheels will be coming soon. The original bolts are made to a good tollerence, they do actually appear to be made specifically for […]
And here’s another batch of titanium bolts i’ve done. The M6 were really hard to make, they are waisted to 5mm and over that length it was impossible to get them perfectly true, but they’re close enough.
Here’s some sidestand bolts i’ve made for a Ducati Desmosidici in titanium. All very lush and spangly!
I struggled with this little deeny, how do you hold it? I’m not all that pleased with it, it’ll do the job OK and nobody will ever see it, but thats not all the point to me, its just not as good as i hoped, but i couldn’t get it any better on the tackle i have. It was the […]
A while ago i made a couple of M8x1 bolts to hold the pedals on a push bike, well now i’ve made some bolts to hold its brakes on. I guess he found that with the pedal bolts it made it go and now he needs some way of making it stop! When i was racing sidecars i was in […]
Here’s some titanium M10 race spec bolts i’ve made, along with some titanium chain link extractor pins. Drilling the lockwire holes in the head of the bolt takes some doing, the drilling itself is fraught with the usual joys of titanium but is straight forward enough, its setting it up to drill that takes time and is fiddly.
I’ve been on with lots of fastners this week. Irritatingly i posted out a load earlier in the week and forgot to photo them again. but there’s plenty more coming up for you to look at! The long bolts are 140mm, i waisted them down to 8mm to get some unsightly weight out of them. At 140mm they are subject […]
These are for a race bike crank cases and cylinder head. The sleeve nuts are 3/8″ cycle thread but the bolts are M8. The little flanged nuts really are little! They are all in titanium and i’ve waisted the shanks of the long bolts to save some precious weight! Titanium M8 skt cap bolts and sleeve nuts
