I've had a lot of requests for something like Chad's wheel, but in a 2D version. Below are the CAD drawings of it in 26" 2D. I will post up pics of a the raw wheel being machined next week/weekend.

This wheel is going on a Street Glide I am building, can't wait to see it. Greg is a great guy to deal with. I havent got the wheel yet but I am sure it will follow along with the great customer service.

From computer to machined product

toolpaths are written and processed. Wheel is ready to cut. More pics to come as the wheel gets bolted into the machine and cutting starts.

f*n technology!

So what should have been 2 more hours of machining last night turned into 5 just to finish the portion of the wheel I was working on. Kept getting Bad Number error during drip feed. Figured out this morning I had me a corrupted MasterCam file. Garbage out turns to garbage in and the machine did not like the garbage.

It's been rotated and is cutting. Finishing up this side, then flipping it tonight.

rotors done

pics of the rotors. I don't normally do mini designs of the wheels. Instead I basically take the 2D outline of the spoke and replicate it on the rotor. That way when you look at it from the side, and or your moving, it disappears. And some pics of the wheel after sanding to get it ready for paint.
