Here’s a titanium wheel and swinging arm spindle set i’ve just made for a Suzuki GSXR1000 K6. They are BIG! Hard work to make but i’m really pleased with the way they’ve turned out.
These are titanium spacers to space out the power head on a racing speedboat. I made the bolts for it a few weeks ago which seem to work very well but the additional strength in them means the existing alloy spacers crush (rather than the bolts break), so we’re trying titanium ones.
These are titanium rear wheel and swinging arm axles for a Triumph T140 engined cafe racer. Long they are too!
Recently I made an alloy steering damper knob and titanium rod for a BSA RGS. Last night the customers son emailed me with a photo of it fitted, it looked so good I thought i’d put it on my blog.
Here’s a set of titanium engine mounting studs for an erm…… those car parts scrambled my brain and i can’t remember anything any more! Thankfully I can still remember that perfection is my goal. The M12 stud is on a 1/2″ shaft making it much quicker and easier to produce as 1/2″ is stock bar size so there was no […]
These are 7075 alloy anti roll bar links i think. They are for the same car as the previous blog. I’m not very helpful am i? But at the end of the day i don’t actually need to know what the parts i’m making will be fitted to (as long as its not for nefarious activities, in which case find […]
This is a batch of car parts i’ve just finished. Man they took some doing! I don’t know what car, or what the parts do in reality, most of them are suspension and anti-roll links. There is one part for a boat which is a steering block.
Here’s a 6082 alloy steering damper knob and titanium rod for a BSA RGS. I like doing these knobs, they are fairly quick and easy to make but look fantastic when finished. The recess in the centre of the knob is to take a badge, in this case a BSA badge. I drill a 2mm hole all the way through […]
Here’s a 7075 alloy swinging arm axle and nut and a titanium engine mounting bolt for an SWM trials bike. The alloy parts are off to Moss Metal Finishing for Surteck 650 coating, this is a corrosion resistant coating that doesn’t stress the metal during application. It doesn’t give a hard finish but that isn’t necessary with 7075 alloy, but […]
Here’s a set of wheel and swinging arm spindles for a Borile. I must confess i’d never heard of them before, but it looks a great little bike, and now its got great little titanium axles! The sleeve nuts and normal nuts are all 7075 alloy.
