So I made Jason (jchaplin4) on the forum some frame plates for his show winning Brutale 1078rr a while ago... http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=47611
However he contacted me recently as he 'lost' them somehow and desperately need another set.
Here is the result...I've changed them slightly in that instead of making the central 7 square spoked wheel (a nod to his carbon fiber BST's) a one piece....I've made it two piece so I could get more definition in the 'hub area.
Anyway here are some photos as usual as to how I got on during the process....cause I know you like 'pics'
Oh and I also involved one of my little lathes to cut the spokes. And 'test fitted' them in my own bike to ensure they were perfect.

Holy shit :jsm: !!

How many hours did you spent????

We have CNC lathes & mills in the company and I can only admire you doing all that by hand. Chapeau!!

You're one of the old good guys - the young ones only can do CNC......

Locktite is my new best friend. Thanks for bailing me out. Oddly enough this will be right before another show if they get here by Moto GP. :)
Still my favorite piece on the bike. I was gutted when I looked down and they weren't there. :(

Cheers Ed...you'll see them for sure a Indy...if Jason hasn't lost them again:laughing:
Oh and if you are puzzled by the photo of the 'calculator'?..., it shows the number of degrees each time you have to move the 'rotary table' to get the 7 spokes evenly spaced for the drilling process.
Brian:).

Jochen;

look up a Brown & Sharp Omniversal milling machine

the ultimate milling machine

it's a horizontal machine with a head that rotates 360* in 2 axii

the XYZ table rotates in 2 axii, the table can be squewed in X

all table axii can be power fed, then add the powered dividing head

all the auxiliary drives/tooling probably weighs 2 tons

It takes a Master Machinist to run one, probably 5 people in the World

could USE one .......and I bet they are all 80+ years old too


sad.......because all those old guys used was Machinery's Handbook, a

slipstick and a pencil and paper


:popcorn:
