@crazypj is where I got mine. Don't know if he's still turning them in his spare time or not. if you can get the critical dimensions and make a sketch... a local machine shop (job shop) should be able to turn you one pretty quick. I'll add that you can also just cap off the speedo drive also and just turn the cable attachment part up behind the fork leg.. barely noticeable without looking for it...

I still have material to make them but I'm 'playing catch up' due to events last year (getting more serious, have to be in court as witness for 2 weeks from next Monday)
I have 4 sets of 360 carbs to do and a set of CB350 on the way plus cylinder head for someone due this month
As 'everyone' is aware (at least I hope so) I do all this stuff as a hobby so charge way less than a dealership or 'shadetree'/backstreet shop. Things are coming along but I'm not treating them as a full time job (see post on Texasstar's 'Zoid/200' thread)

I think I mentioned I was 'playing' with a friends T305?
 Took just over 3 yrs to get it finished as it was never going to be any form of restoration. Problem was, whenever I fixed one problem several others came to light. It's been 'finished' since mid/early April but I only just ' found' camera card and had time to upload to Photobucket. (he's bringing it back sometime so I can modify a fender to fit it, stock wouldn't work with brace, even if we had one)
Here's left and right 3/4 shots. I made several parts including the Egli inspired fork brace. It got one size wider rims front and rear and just about everything new (bored 0.5mm over, bearings, seals,shocks, and a re-wire with heat shield sheathing (mainly because it matched the colour scheme) Chris had seat recovered after I modified it to fit properly (cut about 4" off 'nose')
Forgot to take a close up of the bar ends I made, 6 amber LED's in polycarbonate to act as repeaters.

Found some 35mm valves with 5.5mm stems (instead of 7mm)
Lighter than stock but not 100% sure it's going to work as they are also longer than stock by a few mm. May be enough adjustment in the screw to keep geometry correct?
It's a much bigger job than I originally thought, just finding a source of valve keepers and correct valve guide seals has been an ordeal (not paying $1450 each for seals  :o ) plus, I still haven't found valve spring retainers at a reasonable cost so I may have to make new ones from 4140 steel, not going to mess with Titanium or 7075 alloy
 Had to re-design guide tops for the smaller seals but not a major issue as I'm making new ones from (I think) aluminum bronze or maybe silicon bronze or even Manganese bronze  , I bought several different types several years ago.
I remember doing a lot of research on different types for valve guides. Aluminium bronze seemed best for high temp applications like exhaust valve guides but only OK for intakes.
Bought some new 5.5mm reamers. ::)
Timberwolf is the guinea-pig, already a month late (sorry TW)  ;D

Looks like I have to pull everything off Photobucket and find a real FREE SERVICE , they changed the rules 28th June  >:( :(
 Seems I would have to 'upgrade' to the +500 plan to get image linking plus 3rd party hosting.
As I'm only using 26% of 2GB (0.5gb by Photobucket reckoning) no way in the world am I paying $399.99/yr for 502.1 GB storage (even if I had the money I wouldn't do it)  >:(

Just upload to here.  Tim opened up the ability to upload and host images locally a year or two ago.
