Sorry for keeping you without fresh posts, I was quite busy with some orders, even havd to lay aside front mudguard for KZ650. So this post would be about one of those orders that are interesting in two ways:
- I made it to order the first time;
- huge difference between weight of raw material and ready parts.
What you may see on the photo below is slightly more than 10 kg of 6mm plate of 2024 tempered aluminum.
That is why these spoke adapters (or in other words Comstar conversion rings) for Honda CBX550 wheels are pricy: only 2024 and 7075 aluminum alloys in their tempered states are suitable for such parts, and as you may see, the weight of input is hugely overweight the output. Time of CNC milling machine is also not cheap, and as a matter of fact, these parts are to be treated on lathe and drilling machine afterwards. Also don’t forget to take into account some handiwork.
However, ready parts look very nice, hope customer would be happy with them. Here are some photos:
