Interesting...so does the hub slide back and forth on that axle? Do you have some dimensions for what you want machined up?cactuscorn said:so im sittin her considerin my options. i have this wonderful hope big un front hub all laced up to a wicked hot old school 521 wheelset but the spacing is fubar. its a 95mm width and i now need a 110. its easy to relace or repurchase a wheelset but how cool would it be to make some proper spacers or inserts for the hub since hope isnt interested anymore?
anyone feel like tackeling this job to help out a old man in his time of need? heres 2 shots of the skinny hub from a moto 120 now fitted to a 66 rc. notice the black gaps hetween the hub fittings and the fork dropouts. thats the 20mm axle. its not that i dont like the new stuff, i do. its just that i kinda dig these and cash is low for now. i have calipers and micrometers and i will pay a reasonable price. some help would make my day.
I have access to a machine shop at work...if you know what you want and the material you want it made of...I might be able to do it. It would be a week or two before I can get to it however. I am not a machinist but what are proposing seems easy enough for this engineer/ "armchair machinist" .
