He's casting them in house.

I've considered doing billet. I just don't have the time.

Thats a lot of hours, but doable. I figure out of billet it's still under 2k no problem.

Xv1100 side covers. They are notorious for falling off and are not cheap for a new set.

Spoked hubs are something that are hard to find for modern USD front ends. Shouldn't be as hard to machine as a top yolk (triple tree in US English). I wish my mill was CNC. At least I have a mill and make my own parts.

Milling your own top clamp is awesome. I'm looking to offer some heavy 3d machining that right now no one is producing, mainly because of cost i think.

Not criticising your plan, hell I wish I had the opportunity to set up a cnc shop. 

I think spoked hubs is the gap in the market.

I think that things like this are a good way to get the ball rolling. The little things that usually aren't cost effective to have re-plated (only one piece) but stick out on a build and make it look half done.

I have a Chester Champion 20v mill http://www.chesterhobbystore.com/champion-20v-mill-3992-p.asp

Basically it's the same Chinese mill as many others. I chose the Chester as it came with MT2 taper which is the same as my Myford ML7 lathe.

The mill is ok, can't take big bites of material as it does vibrate a bit if you do, so I end up with many lighter cuts. Not an issue, just takes time, but then my project build has been 4 years in the making due to life getting in the way.

The triple clamp came out ok, I might tidy it up a bit more yet. I want to anodise it and some other parts when I'm finished.
