These are sprocket drive pins for a Honda 500. I’ve also supplied some Probolt items to go with them. I thought they would be nice and quick to make, i’ve made them before and don’t remember them taking very long, but for some reason they seemed to take ages! maybe it was because it was monday morning.
Along with the titanium posts for Moss Metal Finishing i’ve also made some special jig bolts. These are M6x57mm, tricky to get the thread consistent over that length,
This is a batch of fasteners i’ve done for Moss Metal Finishing, my local anodiser. I make their fasteners now after the previous ones they bought used to break too readily. But here’s the thing, the other ones were made from grade 2 titanium which only has the strength of mild steel but is suitable for languishing in anodising solutions […]
Here’s a titanium 1/2″ UNF stud with 7075 alloy flanged nuts, 298mm long. Its an engine mounting stud for a Triumph i think, he did tell me but i forget! 1/2″ is stock bar size happily, so there was no turning down apart from a skim at the ends for thread diameter.
Here are the nuts and bolts to go with the titanium Hyabusa spindles I made. What could be 7075 alloy is and what needed the added strength is titanium.
This was a big job, titanium front, rear and swinging arm spindles, engine mounting bolts and furniture for a Suzuki Hyabusa. They are big shafts to turn, that was the easy bit, boring them hollow was when the fun started! The rear is bored 23mm dia x 300 mm deep all from one end. The swinging arm was actually harder […]
I’m on with a set of spindles and bolts for a Hyabusa at the moment, and a customer wanted a 7075 alloy nut for the swinging arm axle on his R1. They happen to be exactly the same thread as the Hyabusa so i made it at the same time. Hope to have the Hyabusa parts finished before the end […]
These are a few more bits for the Triumph Triples, a rear wheel spindle with 7075 alloy nuts and 7075 alloy engine bolts and studs. The axle is plugged at each end with steel plugs to give ‘authenticity’! It adds a bit of weight but overall it is less than half the weight of the original which is a solid […]
These are for an early 1980’s Honda trials bike, beautiful it is too! They are the front and rear wheel spindles and swinging arm pin along with engine mounting bolts.
Here are 3 titanium Torx 25 M5 bolts for a car to replace one that broke (with 2 spare). I don’t normally do Torx heads if i can help it as they are horrible to broach, so if a hex socket will do then thats what i prefer doing. But in this case there are 40 of them, so if […]
