So i planed to make my own hub guard since in Italy they had none in stock so instead of making a GLAND type hub guard i decided to machine my own at my grandpas workshop since he has a lathe
SPECS:
made out of 7075 aluminium
3,4 cm outside part (big as a peg)
7,5 cm side facing the hub
and made it thicker i think it's like 0,8 cm thick
14mm hole
61 grams it's 2.15oz (the shadow hub guard is 88 gr)
it fits a shadow raptor perfectly

I still can't decide if i should spray paint it black or keep it like this. what would you do and let me know what you think about it!!!

it kinda looks like its a bit too thick and might spread your frame.

it's made just like if i didn't have any hub guard i just removed one of the two locknuts (like shadow with their hub guard) and made the hub guard to replace perfectly the locknu. you can tell by looking at the "spare" axle that is the same on both sides of the hub don't know if you can tell from the photos i'll upload a pic smile

Nice job! It's gonna be a shame to see that thing get busted up from the grinds. Ever consider painting it?

very nice! consider drilling out the hole that the axle goes in a little bigger and making a 14mm steel insert to prevent the aluminum from crushing/deforming around the axle

if you paint it then the pain will rub off on grinds and itll look shitty by the end of the first session..

I have nothing against pegs at all, I don’t think you’re dumb if you ride pegs, I don’t care about your pegs, they are just pegs! What I do hate is the fact that every person in BMX hops on this bandwagon of three pegs, and beanies, and weed, and hop-over grinds… It’s just sad that the pros who influence kids are more worried about looking cool than the kids themselves! It’s crazy!-Trey Jones

It didn't take a lot of time but i'll use this as prototype and maybe add an anti spin thing and put some kind of steel spacer in the hole and don't know maybe open a buissness
Also it's going to be easier to copy this since to make it i started from a solid piece of aluminium and didn't have any sames a part of my hub and some pictures

Nice, better than the one I made for sure (you did have a lathe)
Keep it raw. BMX needs more people like you.

I know this is a chain tool, but what am i gunna do wit' it?

7/10/2012 6:24 AM

Good job dude...

It's about time someone posted a usefull thread on vital.

7/10/2012 7:05 AM

Thats a pretty dope creation, Its always nice to have tools available when you bmx. In the next couple days I'm planning on rawing my stolen team cranks and possibly making some bar ends, the ones that came with my cult vans grips are straight trash and it would be pretty sweet to have parts on your bike that you made yourself

|

7/10/2012 11:17 AM

Just keep it raw, itll get scratched anyway. but i think itd look better black. :p

I ride a: Cult
why do I ride?:peer pressure

7/10/2012 11:21 AM

yeah i'm keeping it raw , it would look messy all scratched up !
