Default Re: Something new and kinda sorta 100 years old looking

Started making a set of 1/2" truss rods. I used 3/8" bushings (gave me some meat to weld to) and drilled them out to 1/2". I'll weld the rods to the bottom of the fork and weld the stand-offs on the lower shoulder of the triple tree. The upper ends of the rods will be threaded and will fit through brackets welded to the upper shoulders.

I don't know what some of these bike parts are actually called, so I just make stuff up. Now I gotta find that 1/2" die...
