    New custom made one of a kind chain tensioners

    I wanted some new chain tensioners and had an idea to make these. So I commissioned a friend who is a machinist and he made me these AWESOME parts:

    Sometimes a banana is just a banana, but this thread might do well with a NSFW warning.

    I dunno... looks kind of thick and bulky, maybe a little bigger than it needs to be, but I bet once it's set and in there it's not going anywhere.

    I see where he's going... maybe the chainline wasn't getting tight enough, so now he has the bolt on the back and if that breaks, in a pinch he can give the nuts a good whack with a hammer to straighten things up.

    It may be a little odd seeing it on here, but if I saw that on the trail, I'd laugh my ass off.

    Gave me a good laugh..My wife just shook her head.

    I'm not machinist, but when I got my plasma cutter I "got a little artsy" and decided to make a special cylinder head badge for a riding buddy's motocross bike..

    Great minds think alike, no?
