    tony,  very kind of you to say that, thank you!!!
    ray, me too. it's lots'o fun. thanks.
    bob, thanks and we'll try to keep the loud pedal down.
    got some time to fix those rotors that were too small. mistakes suck! they stop your momentum and they take twice as long to fix.

    made some brake caliper inner halves.

    also machined some caliper mounts.


     
    hope you enjoy!

    started on the bead lock. i prefer to do my beadlocks as a separate set of pieces. much more like a real wheel.
