Here’s a titanium rear wheel axle for an Aprilia RS250, with a 7075 alloy nut. On this one i made the head separatley and screwed and locktited it on. I don’t often do that as it doesn’t usually work out any more economical but in this case it did. There is no harm in doing it this way, it still […]
These are titanium fairing screws for a Suzuki Hyabusa, alloy would have been quite suitable but my customer likes the strength and none-corrosive properties of titanium, but then don’t we all!
These are 5/16 UNF nuts made from 7075 alloy. They are for chain adjusters on Triumph triples. I had the chain adjuster made from 7075 alloy too, but as i didn’t make them i’m not putting them on my blog.
Here’s a couple more titanium nuts for a Lotus, M12x1.25. I’m not sure what bit they hold on, but it won’t be going anywhere when its bolted on with these!
These were tricky to do as the shanks are waisted to 4.5mm so there was nothing to hold onto for milling the hex, so i had to make a special holder for them.
Here’s a couple of 1/2″ UNF titanium studs i’ve just made, one is for a swinging arm and the other is an engine mounting stud. Happily the swinging arm stud passes through sleeves which were bored on the generous side so the stock bar fitted after a polish with emery without he need to skim it to size, which over […]
Here’s another set of Montessa titanium wheel and swinging arm spindles for H&D Racing in York. I’ve done a fair few sets in both titanium and 7075 alloy now, the trials lads like the edge lightweight spindles give. The front axle screws straight into the fork leg so there is no nut for it.
Here’s a couple of 7075 aloy engine plugs for a Ducati. One is M10x1.5 pitch the other is 1.25.
Here’s another 2 sets of titanium sprocket drive pins for BST wheels, they’re off to HPS as they’ve sold out again
These are the remainder of the batch of 6082 alloy steering damper knobs i’ve just made for BSA Goldstars. I make each one slightly differently so they are all unique, thats the beauty of making stuff by hand, you can make it look hand made! Everyones bike is unique to them, so i like to keep it that way, i […]
