CR750 pedals

about a week ago I did some casting for a friend
look at the nice bunch of parts laying there
copy's of Honda CR750 brakepedal, shiftlever and small change arms for the right-foot-shifter conversion.

Still finding it funny to have all these rare parts, usually made from "unobtainium" but these I just made myself.

anyone who has RSC style footpegs that I could copy?

racing style lever perches, part two

Did some more machining to finish this little sub-project.
Turned some stainless pegs for the spring to hook behind

Drilled some holes and started polishing, one at a time, not too bright, it should match the shine of the levers. I like my aluminium to still look like polished aluminium instead of chrome.

Finished product, including specials springs, bolts, castle nuts and splitpins.

mounted to the RSC90, even though I'm planning to make different ones for this bike later on, but for now it's an upgrade. Special chrome adjuster nuts were already on the cables.

And now there done and I should get back to building the C110 racer, so I can ride it this season.

But when I do another day of casting I might just make another set of these to be machined for another bike, or anyone who is interested.

racing style lever perches

This casting "thing" is getting funny.
Copied me a set of the CL72 perches that I now have on my RSC90, but then with solid mirror mounts, so they can be removed without leaving a trace.

making the space for the lever

just enough, it fits

we're getting there, mirror mounts removed and contour shaped to look like the originals that were a bit less rounded. Then drilled the holes for the handlebar.

but still some machining to do before they will be ready for fitting.
cutting the opening in the clamp, making the hole for the adjuster, threading it and making a slot for the cable. Making the pegs that the spring hooks behind, probably from stainless, and fitting them. Making the holes for the leverbolts, 7mm on top and 6mm bottom without threads for the special bolts.
A lot of work for a couple of perches, but they will be different from all the other ones in the paddock.

fresh paint

I just recieved an e-mail from my painter, where I dropped of 2 bikes last week, that my bike is ready. and next week he will start on my dad's CB100.

And some pictures included also, I can hardly wait to pick it up and start putting it together.

Although I didn't think it would be done so quickly, so the zincplating still has to be sent out.
