They look really cool, good job!
mori seiki sl-500 with live tooling.Nice work. What kind of lathe did you make them on?
i wish i had access to the schools machine shop again. i would have forwards alread for my bike...Miss my old job we had a full machine shop..Was always fabing parts for my bosses toys..
Impressed, keep it up!... what chromer do you use btw? Also, quick question... why chrome the main gear and not all of the parts... ( plates )I finally found some time at work to make some pegs and grips for the bike. Still need to mill cable connections on throttle side, and polish the brackets. Next comes side mount bracket, then sissy bar.
Man the fun I could have if I worked in a place like that. I'd probably never go home after work.Lester-I decided to go with 2 ops. I was afraid if I cut them off they would get all banged up.I used Alum. 6061.
Red- Actually they aren't chromed just polished. I didn't have time to polish the plates. I do want to find a Chromer but I'm not done fabbing yet.
Seadawg-Yeah working in a shop has its perks. I'm a cnc programmer for an aerospace company.We have Horizontal Mills, Vertical Mills, Turning Lathes, C axis Lathes, and 5 axis Machining centers. I can program,setup, and run all of them, problem is finding time to do it.
Everyone-thanks for compliments.
no problem dude. I do everything quick, my wife will tell ya[/QUOTE]Just curious as I have become weary of quick posts on this forum....
Yeah, front pegs and brackets fit well though. Richard your bike looks bad ass btw.So you’re still in R&D, just not ready to release them yet. Huh?
