A friend hand machine out the spacers from a solid.

Started from a couple of 3D design.
I didn't want to have to offset any rotors like others have done.
The rims and rotors sits dead centre.

Same original forks with one side of the leg has a dog leg cast spacer.
And no we didn't shave or modify any of the legs.
So I can swap between the original rims on the B4 and the marchesini and then back to the F4.

Take out the big axel from the rim that was use on the F4 and machine smaller spacer to suit the B4 axel.

Went through that road trying to find bearing to replace. But no good, the spacer sleeve sits on the bearings.

I'm confused. If one axle is smaller than the other, and you are using the original bearings...how does that work?

That was my thought. There has to be a problem waiting to happen with a 5mm gap all the way around the axle. You should have a Spacer made that would fit around the axle and underneath the bearing. So the wheel is really riding on the spacer and not on the axle

I'd have to agree with that, George.

Unless the spacer is stepped, I can't visualize how this is not a disaster just waiting to happen.

Axel and spacer locks on the inner ball race bearings to the fork legs same as original or other axel.
Wheel rides on the ball bearing. Like other.
This wheel can potentially work on F3 also just by making different size spacer.

The guy who machine the spacer went by 3d model and take measure on site.
So no engineering drawing.
