    A Vintage Parts Fab

    If you can no longer buy it, you end up making it.

    Very nice,

    That's an expensive little part there in machine time eh? 3 hours or so......
    Makes it about a $300 - $400 part

    1.5 hours. But yes, an expensive little part, especially when you consider the investment in machines.

    Let's see it in action!

    So, are you going to anodize it 3DV?

    ssmike, if you owned a few GT's you'd know what this was for. ;-)

    is there much demand for brand new replacements for older parts?

    Looks like the top of a flip flop stem? If so, I never would have gone to the trouble. There are people that have them in NOS for $9.95-$11.95 maybe not the right length though?
    Needed: 26.8mm XTR seatpost, blue GT/Grundig Jersey.

    Actually, I don't own any GT's either, thus the ";-)". But I suppose it would work on a GT.

    Where is such a part available NOS?

    What do you mean...I stamped the "MAX 22mm" line myself and ribbed the bottom expander. This is serious reproduction work. ;-)

    Working on too many carbon bikes and disk brakes?

    Yeah, that occurred to me before posting it. Sorry, I'm not taking orders.

    GT Flip Flop stem from 1991. They are commonly available on eBay for as little as $9.95-$15.95 but are always black. One seller has both 1" and 1-1/8" listed in his store quite often. Stop turning and start buying

    Those are a dime a dozen too. Some of you guys need to learn to use google.
    ferrule end-cap cadplate 6mm 10 pack ... $4.99 More common in motorcycle shops these days then bike shops.
    There's also a ton of old Tioga 2.0mm innerwire brake cable sets out there that come with them.

    Good to know. However this part and the 6mm ferrules are destined for a very specific application, for a bike as early at 1983-1984. More to come.

    Nice work

    I always love to see machined parts, even if it's something simple. Are those sausage links for dirt drop shifter mounts?

    Keep the pics coming.

    Maybe we should make this the official thread for repro parts! I have a few I could share, but nothing too vintage or exciting. I teach machining for the local tech college, so I am constantly coming up with home projects for my bikes!
