New place got back to me. Tiger Metals is awesome.

The 1.750" x 13" titanium bar from Online Metals is $454 (they don't have 1.625")

The 1.625" x 13" titanium bar from Tiger Metals is $155

All 6 bars I need are less than $500 from Tiger Metals.

Back on track, now!

Two days ago, I got an email from Wilbers that said my color choice for the spring is not in their catalog.

I was told they could do most any RAL color, and I chose the color when the order was placed.

In the meantime, I purchased matching powder (in December) - and it's a fucking miracle that I haven't used it on any parts, yet.

Two days ago, they also sent me a link to a page with all of their color choices. If only they would have sent it when they first told me about powder coating - I wouldn't have to eat the cost of the powder, and have more time wasted!

Fuck, fuck, and double fuck!!

Probably won't be riding this bike before forever and a day, but this order has been frustrating from the get go.

Titanium swingarm pivot nut is done.

Well, I may cut off 1mm from the flange to shorten it, and cut down the (future) bolt 1mm as well.

The fit is perfect on the OEM pivot bolt.





Progress is slow on the other titanium parts.

The fact that people like you exist makes me really happy, Smoker.

It's not so bad as long as you can keep the fear from your mind.

Titanium rear axle nut is a pretty good match with the swingarm pivot nut.

One hole is threaded for a grub screw which puts pressure on a delrin plug. The delrin plug is cut into the threads and will lock the nut.

Finally got the new shock.




I'd like to do a custom hose, fittings, banjo bolts, and polish + gold titanium nitride the locknut on the length adjuster.

The adjuster screws on the reservoir are already gold, which is a plus. There are stickers on the shock and reservoir. Need to remove those right away.

Got the (steel) rear shock connecting arms chromed.

Chrome is a good base for titanium nitride coating.

Not sure about TiN. They look pretty good and match the polished link.

My titanium fetish is minimal, compared to the heavy-hitters. I like it because it doesn't rust, and I can apply titanium nitride coating. I use TiN coating like paint or anodizing, to style the bike.
