Quick tail light grille for @christopherflechtner chopper build today. Can’t wait to see the finished bike!

This thing is done. And so ridiculous. I love it.
Rim half for @haulincolin #qs205 hub motor, allowing him to use a 14x3-1/2” Michelin scooter tire. All the fancy machining gets hidden on the inside. 3.1lb per half. Raw stock weighs 28.6lb. Still have to make the other side and cut valve holes but the program is all proven and ready to roll now.

At Cyclefab, we bend over backwards for you!
Colin and I doing some two-man-TIG on an XR600 kickstand repair. I could have operated the pedal but it was a little bit of an awkward foot angle so I had Colin run it. Voila! A voice activated welder!

Some drillium for a walk in customer... he wanted opposite hand spirals, clocked 10deg from each other relative to the 4-bolt pattern so that when mounted on the wheel, the speed holes would be staggered. Made a quick n dirty alignment tool to tram the bolt pattern to the table. Not sure of exact material but I’ve heard that a lot of the Japanese manufacturers are using an alloy that’s very close to 410 SS, so that’s what feed and speed calcs were based off of. The holes look great and there’s no burr on the backside so I think I nailed it.

Some custom boot parts for @dustroyer out of 7075 and a half-broken, now reshaped Hozan lockring tool that is my new drill chuck spanner / bottle opener

Been real busy on all fronts around here and I keep snapping photos but forgetting to post them. In this bunch: quick turnaround machined aluminum parts, improvised parts drying after tumbling (RJ parts), when alumina cups go poof, electronics preassembly en masse, quick-n-dirty large radius tube bender (thanks @joelerroon), large dog kennel project going on the back of a BMW GS1200.

M2.5 threads on some 1/8” stainless rod this morning
@azfizrof and I went to an auction preview at a machine shop this morning and spotted this gem behind one of the mills.
