Decided to make some spikes and mount them on the front wheel shaft.

After a lot of thinking on how those things are mounted and stick to the shaft, i actually went to the garage to see if i could get some good ideas. It i would have done that from the start i would have noticed that the front wheel shaft has a hole straight through it.  That would have saved me quite a bit of time to think about something else. Wink

So the parts i need. 2 cones  and a shaft with threads on each end to..... Said and done.
Ordered a bit of 30mm aluminum shaft and some 10mm aluminum shaft.
Took the parts to my work and borrowed the turning machine for a few hours. And this is the result.

The first pair i made. was a bit to short and not as pointy as i wanted them. but i used them as a test to mount things in place and see that i have been thinking straight.

This is the ones im gonna use. about 15mm longer than the first ones, pollished and waxed.

thanks man!
Took me a while to figure out how to mount them. But the job was quite easy and fun when it came to the execution Wink
Am a bit disapointed of the surface on the cones, but thats the turning machine that aint 100% centered so its not possible to get a better outcome on that machine

Got them mounted yesterday...
Had to do some modifications to the axel that im using to tighten the spikes since one end of the wheel shaft have a 8mm hole and not 10mm thats in the other end.

im really happy with the results :)

Thanks guys. 

Been thinking about marking one more spike to use as a knob for the choke. A bit more work Since i need to construct a "slotted nut" to make it function but its still doable

In use the one i have at my job. Not the best one but its free;)
Materials was about 250 SEK ( 20-25 points) that was enough to make 3 pairs of spikes and 2 or 3 pairs of axel to put inside the wheel axel.

Simbo: the satisfaction to be able to do just that, step back and see the things you made to your ride is really super. It is allmost complete the way i have planens it. A few changera of plans along the way, new ideas and methods to work things out. But still im kinda produkter of the work and the outcome.
