not the most interesting photo in the world i admit but a couple of pieces of work that are vital to the project, the top spindle is the swingarm spindle, it's actually an old harley davidson sporty item thats been turned down to suit, the standard item was knackered, the bottom spindle is the front wheel spindle, dangerous tried to turn the standard one down to fit the smaller wheel bearings on the grimeca wheel but the metal was absolute shit and was picking up as he tried to machine it so, he did what anyone would do, nicked a bit of silver steel from work, turned it up to suit and made a stainless nut to fit from a piece of hexagonal bar we had in stock, dave, you are the lathemeister.
