Wow, that's going to be super nice once anodized. I don't even want to hazard a guess that the cost of that bit.

Just got home -- looks like someone posted the images for you already.

Beautiful work! There is a LOT of CNC time into that swingarm for whomever made it! Glad to see something new and innovative being made out there! [thumbsup]

ps: is that a sneak peak on the desk of the next item for the Ducati?

How much to get one made while the machine is still setup? or maybe the program file for the cnc and I'll get it made at work! :)

thanks for all the compliments but they are really duew to my machinist. i gave him a basic concept and just said run with it. i guess it helps he has three ducatis and a whole pile of other bikes, including the only 1000 drysdale ever built. he has put thousands of hours into building parts for his bikes and they are all masterpieces. truely unbelievable stuff.

as for cost, if people are interested in them, i am guessing that interest will end when the price becomes available. i have no idea what they will cost because i was afraid to aske when we started the project. i figured i would whimp out if i knew so i just told hime to make it and bill me. i am guess it is going to be expensive since the 84lb block was close to $700 alone.

we are also designing a billet girder style front end that may go to production, depends on the 2007 budget!
