View Full Version : Could someone please make these for me? :(

I'm sick of not getting time in the shop and just want someone to do it up.

I need two of these:


and two of these:


These are brackets to mount the rear pivot and upper shock mounts on my bike to the frame. All 4 of them can be done in plain old mild steel.

The 12.7mm radius fits against 1" tubing and will be welded. The other ends (12 and 10mm) are bored for bolts to go through. I just guessed at the bore dia. Use the common necessary size for a 12 and 10 mm bolt.

Also, on the backside where it merges to the tubing it doesn't need to be a specific depth, so if you lose some in the kerf it's all good.

One could easily take out the holes, cut the plates and then just chop them in half like so (cut on red line obviously).


Anyhow, if any of you have the tools and the time I'd be appreciative, and of course, I'll pay you.

So that's 4 pieces, 2 w/ 10mm bore and 2 w/ 12mm bore.

If you can help me out with this ASAP PLEASE send me a PM about it and tell me what you will charge. I need these soon so I can get this bike done to ride this spring. THANKS!

*****ALSO!!!! I know it says on the plans that these need to be 6mm... that's been changed. The material should be mild steel 3/16" thickness. Thanks!

I have no personal experience with them, but have heard some good things.


Let me know if it works out

I can easliy make those parts that you have requested if no one has offered to make them yet. Are the two part's going to be welded together? If you need them together I can just make them as they are or if you rather them be seperated I can do that as well. I will be using a Laser to cut them out so It should not take long at all and I can even get a base paint or rust prevention added as well as deburr the part's. Let me know and If your interested I can give you a descent price. Thanks and goodluck!

Well, you know what I mean.

You refer to a radius of 12.7 inches, while I would bet you meant 12.7 millimeters.

You didn't draw up the Hubble telescope plans, by chance, did you?

You refer to a diameter 12.7 inches, while I would bet you meant 12.7 millimeters.

Got to watch that, the drawing references a 12.7 inch RADIUS, which should be 12.7mm, resulting in a match to a 1" diameter (25.4mm).:-D

Laser is the way to go especially if they are weld on bracets. "One Offs" or short runs may cost a bit more but in the long run waaaaaaaaaaaaay cheaper than Machining.

could u not get tabs from somewhere like www.suicidedoors.com (http://www.suicidedoors.com) ? they have 4 link axle tabs, unless you really meant 12.5 inches or whatever the measurement was.

Some chassis shops have shock tabs cut out, $2.50 each.. If you looked at www.speedwaymotors.com you might find something really close off the shelf..

I got into metal casting for my robotic toys, they kept raping me at the local machine shops to cut them out..
I got into machining for my bike-rod-robotic toys, they kept raping me at the local machine shops. I even bought a old paper tape bridgeport and converted it to pentuim 4 controls. I could've had a new car for what that cost.

Now, I got a whole shop full of tools and feel like crap too. I feel your pain friend.
