so the bottom 39mm sportster yoke has been taken out to 41mm, now i've got to get on the lathe and make up the top spacers, might have them done tonight.
aren't they skinny legs...once i've made the top spacers i then need to find some flt stantions as they are 4" shorter than these or i may just cut these and get the end re-threaded, email me if you have some 41mm flt legs on the cheap in the uk.

my skinny Jammer 41mm fork legs were in wide glide yokes, i want them in narrow glide so i have a 39mm sportster bottom yoke at the machine shop being taken out to 41mm and i will make up a spacer for the top yoke, should have the bottom yoke back next friday, as for the wheel, its a Jammer blaster, again with a wide glide hub, so my plan is to cut the narrow glide hub in half next to it, drill it for dual discs, get some mounting flanges water jet cut and weld them to the hub halves and bolt them to the wheel. then if it all goes to plan i have a Jammer narrow glide front end.
so as i am sure you can see, i taken an old harley foot peg, stripped the rubber off, put it in a lathe to get it to the right size to run a 1/2 die down it, i will cut these to size once i get a couple 1/2 unc nuts.
Then i drilled and tapped these bmx pegs and screwed them together, once i get the nuts i won't need these threaded. I might shorten them one section once i have seen them on my bike.
Now i have made the threaded hinges from the old pegs i can fit any bmx pegs i want and there's plenty of different one's out there.
