There's a guy I know that wants to make a part for this bike and needs someone with a CNC machine to help. He's willing to pay reasonable fee.

In his words "It’s a case for keyless remote and transponder key."

I thought I remember one of you here in PDX having a machine shop. So I thought I'd ask if anyone here had a CNC machine that might be interested in the project.

The boy is buying all these cool toys and trucks and trailers and doodads and thingamabobs to go with them.

He's just oozing with money! :eek:

You should try Mark Elam. He's a local chopper builder...

All American Cycle Inc
55 Southeast 11th Avenue, Portland, OR 97214
(503) 239-5150

He would have one or a line on one. Mark's a cool guy.

btw, I just turned in my coins. It was pennies, nickels, and dimes only. Came to $697.41 Took the machine 50 minutes to count it.
[thumbsup]
Good luck,
Billy

I thought ION was the master metal fab guy
I think he has a mill, but I'm 90% sure it's not a CNC machine.

I wish I had an old bridgeport with handcranks. Sigh.

Back to work peasant! Quit playing with your nuts!

I once needed some bearings pressed into the races of an old frame and I couldn't find a pipe to save my life so I went to a local hole in the wall machine shop. The guy inside had done exactly as you describe- left his mega shop to work on his own. He seemed like the happiest, nicest guy I ever met. He stopped working on his real work and we talked old cycles and machine shop stuff for about a half hour. What a gig... (sigh)
