Re: Planes Bikes and AutomobilesThe Bomber build moves on, these bad boys arrived today, ordered a week ago yesterday from China, estimated delivery 19th-30th June, were at Charles De Gaulle Airport at 4.00pm yesterday. The front wheel to fit these is being hand built at a local wheel building company, will take about 5 weeks for completion.
Re: Planes Bikes and AutomobilesThe Bomber is coming on Ok now, the copy of the costing spreadsheet is below £1646.00 So far, the last high ticket item to procure is this.
Re: Planes Bikes and AutomobilesOk Bomber Fans, had to wait four days for a piece of aluminium tube to arrive to act as a drift, in the first phot is the bottom bearing case sitting on a taper about 8mm from its home position, got the drift a perfect size not to damage the base, a couple of taps with the hammer and bingo.
Re: Planes Bikes and AutomobilesThis is the rear brake disc fitted to the wheel, there is a shim fitted, but until the caliper is fitted on the frame, and the wheel offered up, won't know if this is required.
Re: Planes Bikes and AutomobilesRear wheel plonked in place, because the frame is designed to take a variety of wheels, the use of spacers is necessary, in this case 2 X m16, 8mm, this will center the wheel then the rear caliper mounting bracket will have to be shimmed out to line up with the disc.
