So another update from Old Man Murphyís shed

So from the first picture you can see where the front edge was marked up where it needed to be rounded off.

this was done with the router then finished off by hand

Next the hole for the bolt that tightens the grip around the fork needed to be drilled and have a thread tapped

It needs two slits cut, the hole in for the idiot lights then polish, polish, polish, polish

Iím actually thinking I need to go to a CNC engraver to get OMM or Old Man Murphy put on it now

So OMM put the final cuts in for the fork clamp

Then he counter sunk the bolt holes. He used a steel plate to ensure he didnít go too far.

Now we just need to cut the slot for the idiot lights, engrave and polish it.

After itís engraved Iím going to use the leftover gold powder coating and fill the engraving with it then try and bake it.

Hopefully it works

Do you have those laser engraving places in AUS? We have places here in the US that take a laser and they can engrave anything from wood to cold rolled steel. Itís a pretty cool process.

Anyone with a vinyl cutter can etch aluminum pretty simply, and with at least equal accuracy as any type of engraving.

So after Iíd finished admiring the drilled out disc it was time to tape it up in preparation of spraying the middle of the disc, in an attempt to give the illusion of a thinner disc. 

I got a little carried away and didnít take photos until after I had sprayed it up.

Once it was sprayed I put it into the oven... in order to prolong my marriage I bought the garage an oven and used that instead of the one in the kitchen

My rear sprocket also arrived and itís a match. Now I just need the 4 studs to fix it into position and a 530 front sprocket then Iím ready for a chain.

I did a test run with the top triple and the hole for the stem is a smidge tight so itís back at OMM with all the instruments.

We are going to turn up a bucket that screws into the underside of the triple to secure the gauge and. The idiot lights will be flush mounted into the triple. So watch this spot.
