As you all know already, nothing is new, and this blog is no exception.

It is full of a lot of pictures, mostly pinched from somewhere or other and the odd bit of useful and not so useful information for your enjoyment.

trying them in for size

the hub is still a work in progress, but i just wanted to see what the wheel and forks looked like in a frame, will probably use them in a sportster frame with an extended swing arm though.
what do you think?

Jammer fork top yoke spacers finished

so the next bits are, shorten the stanchions 4", make a narrow twin disc hub for the Jammer Blaster wheel and look at the axle fitment at the bottom of the forks

Jammer fork top yoke spacers

From this
to this, but still need to cut slits in them and see how much more material i can lose from the top
and this is the mess i have got to clean up

For steve@strathbran

sorry only just got your message about the flathead, sorry no more pictures of that one but here's a few more you may like.

Jammer narrow glide update

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.

Koffin hopper built by murray customs, featured in GKM

i owned this work of art for a while, it has loads of cool bits, and would look good on any wall, but for me riding it was a bitch, it was tiny, very skinny and dragged the pegs through any corner, not that i have a problem with tiny, skinny bikes i just did not get along with it that well, and even though it looks great it was still a work in progress, but i am just happy to say i owed it for a while.

jammer front end

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.

making old pegs into new

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.
