How's everybody doing with their project?
I Received the hanger, axle and brakeline from JDRadman and they are fantastic. He did a great job of designing and fabricating this stuff. I have also been annoying him over the phone with a zillion questions and he never even hangs up on me.
This is what I have done so far:
  • electrical is done. converted ignition to toggle switch, new headlight because rock did the other one in, new sealed battery so the bike will start, fixed heated grips -now that it is not cold anymore.
  • mounted triples and found out my ebay friend sent me junk bearings, so I am waiting on a new set.
  • front fender is almost installed.
  • wheels went to woodys for a little winter vacation and they are sweet.
  • needed new sprockets and chain
  • still waiting on the forks that were sent out to get seals, progressive springs and shortend 1" (maybe now I have time to paint the body panels?? getting sick of the white) any ideas where to get new dakar decals?
still need to switch the brake cable, mount the forks when they show up and go for a ride!
someday I hope to post some pictures

My axle and caliper bracket arrived today. They are beautiful and I am in love with them.

How much were they if I may ask? I haven't heard from JDRadman so i'm thinking I missed out on the deal, PM'd him a couple times but no luck.

Can you post some pics?


Cheers

OK, fellas here we go:

The axle and bracket are machined out of stainless steel. The axle cleverly adapts the larger diameter of the holes in the fork by having a thicker section at one end, and having the 'nut' at the other end serve the same purpose.

Now the pictures:
