    That doesn't look like magnesium.



    Huff...

    I actually priced magnesium in this size. $1200. Don’t think I can swing that one

    I had a 6061 made for Stella that I put on raw (never anodized it). Has maybe 15K on it and some weird pitting on the teeth. Nothing crazy, but I'm keeping my eye on it. I don't think it's a problem, but if I did it again I think I'd go 7075.

    IMO, the rear stock pulley design on Buells doesn't seem to match anything else on the bike. Do you know what kind of spoke design you'll use?

    Definitely haven’t settled on a design yet. I really like the pulleys that mimic the rear wheel spokes and line up with them but I don’t want it to look like a pulley you can get off eBay. I’m still designing. Open for suggestions though.

    Who made the pulley for you?

    Sounds like your are referring to Purpony's sprocket. While I think his stuff is sold on eBay (maybe... I could be wrong), his stuff is top quality.

    Now that Cooter mentioned it, I too am disappointed by you moving away from magnesium. I award you no points, and may God may mercy on your soul.

    I’m thinking of starting a go fund me page for the magnesium.
