Nice one Rob...now all you need is some Titanium to play with. Some Ti wheel and swingarm spindles would be nice :biggrin For something a bit smaller and on a more serious note some Ti bolts that go into the chain adjusters would be a good thing as these always rust. They could also do with an allen head as an option milled into the bolt head too. :wink:

Bloke wandering around the coffee stop at Glyn Tarell on the A470 in a kilt and Dr. Martens. Looked like Axel Rose from an 80's video. Then he put on an open face helmet and got on a black Ducati Diavel. :confused I don't think he was Scottish .

You mistake my motives, Chris. I have no need of turned parts at present.

I merely enquired as I know others might- a selfless gesture, (for once).

I'm still holding out for a metric lathe with a milling attachment for less than £300, in good nick, locally. I can part-exchange one of my large hammers.....
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

picking up an immaculate 916 with Ohlins, and only 5400 miles in red with all the documents. wheels need a paint, but apart from that Fab.
missing the noise, not the vibes. However never say never!

Bloody hell BTW, your some lad. Where did you discover the 916.
I'd park it in my living room and just drool.
Are you planning on using it or just polish it?

And where's the photos????????
Don't hassle me
I'll get there at some time
