^^^^  im not sure what that means or how to take it. I'm laughing, but maybe i should not be.  i usually just call it "my bike. . . .  no, the one that runs"

so, i have been working on this contraption.  not nearly as much as i have been riding it.  lately i have been working on the more modern dual front disc set-up and i made a fork brace. 


so this is one of the rotors and the carrier i had water jet out of .25" Al. 


now i am making some spacers that fit behind this carrier to bring the rotors out so that the calipers clear the spokes.  one is done.  no pic yet

this is the fork brace





bad part is that it doesn't brace very much.  its 5052 18g  AL.  i was hoping the beads would stiffen it up, but there is still lots of flex in it.  oh well, for a few ounces its better than nothing and a good time learning

ok.  made some spacers that attach at the hub and then register the rotor carriers. 



last night i found out that all i have to do is weld some more material to the caliper bracket and drill/tap a hole.
the bracket with extra material ( before final shaping and hole)


hopefully tonight i will have it all bolted up. on one side at least.  almost there.

well, i put it all together and the speedo drive hit the bolt heads holding the rotors on.  so off to the machine shop to make a speedo block off/spacer and while i was at it i made the spacer for the other side of the wheel out of Aluminum as well.  here it is.
