I'm more impressed by the tools you've got at your disposal. Holeee-crap! I didn't think the Z-axis way covers looked like Haas but, now I'm going to guess VF-4. Nice 3D taster which says nothing about all the fixture plates. Most people have no idea what you've got tied up there but, I do. Wow!

That's a VF2. The tooling often takes more time than the part I'm making.

If I spent more time in my VF-2, I'd recognize the damn table and way covers. Yeah, the setup and tooling are what people never see.

Starting the swingarm. The six machined spud ends can be seen bolted to the uprights. The spuds have a semi-press fit into the tube, with a .06 chamfer on each for the weld.

That's true.
If this prototype works like its intended, I might make more.

Subscribed. I always wished I had more time to design/machine motorcycle parts when I had access to all the tools... someday when my woman makes me all that money I've been needing :-)

Once the bores are all squared up, the boring head was put to work. The upper bore in this video was done first, then an extension was added. This allowed the boring head to pass thru the finished bore and reach the lower bore all in one clamping.
If I were to flip the fixture and do the second bore, that would be an opportunity to introduce error. This worked really well. When uninstalled the pivot shaft, it went in smooth as glass.

You MUST do tool and die work to have a boring setup that specialized. Dual cutter or just rigid as hell?

If somebody walked in off the street and needed that done, most would have no idea how expensive that would be or the investment in tooling involved. Bravo!

You must have assembled everything in-place and hoped you didn't accidentally move X & Y. The VF-2 doesn't have enough Z travel to pull that cutter all the way out of the part.

(edit: MAYBE it does...JUST barely)
