Default Re: WOW ! I thought I was on my own...

I had a go on the little lathe and made some wheel spaces, I got my lad Archie involved as he's bagsied the bike, it was his job to clean up the alloy before its machined an he loves making swarf as much as I do - what is it with lathes ?


I've orded a 12mm x 1.25 pitch die to make the top yoke spindle fit as its a bit long, but to make it work for now I've machined up some spaces to see if it all works..and it does so the next job is to find some more alloy for the rear wheel spaces, then I can get the rear wheel centred.

I must say this is a labour of love bringing this one back.
