This is a Honda SP2 titanium rear wheel spindle and 2 sets of 7075 alloy front wheel spacers. I’ve made the head on the axle smaller diameter than oem for economy, lightness and overall sex appeal.
I do titanium stuff for cars now and again, this is for a customer who is restoring a Lotus, there’s some nuts and bolts coming soon as well. In the mean time this is a titanium gear lever, copy of the original. It was fun to bend, I had thoughts of contracting a fabricator, spring maker, pipe bender or anyone […]
And yet more titanium Montessa parts for Mark at H&D Racing. This lot is a titanium swinging arm spindle, suspension bolts and engine mounting bolts. As standard the engine mounting bolts have a straight shank, but i make my titanium ones with waisted shanks, that gets even more weight out of them.
These are a titanium sidestand and long M8 coutersunk bolts. I like making sidestand bolts as the originals are usually chunky heavy affairs which can be lightened considerably with big holes!
Here’s another 7 sets of titanium sprocket drive pins for BST wheels, they are off to Harwood Performance Source for them to supply with their BST wheels for anyone who wants them as an optional extra.

I’ve made it from 7075 alloy as i do as standard for head stems, but i get them coated with Surteck 650 for corrosion protection. I always enjoy the jobs i get where the instruction is to […]
This is a titanium front wheel axle for a Honda SP2, its a beauty!

But my customer wanted this one as per original.
Here’s a pair of wheel spindles for a Montessa, going to H&D Racing in York again. Even though the originals are alloy by the time i’ve bored the titanium ones they come out lighter than alloy, plus they are stronger. I used to make the rear axle with a 16×1.5mm thread as its a common size, but I now stick […]
