    Lets see what it takes to finish one and I can see what the cost is. The one for me is just my time.
    Thanks, John

    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Wow!
    Looking good, John.
    That's one big chunk of aluminum.
    How will you join the two halves.
    There was a guy years ago named Alex Pong who designed a crankset that used two halves of machined billet aluminum.
    He joined the halves using a dado like joint and some type of epoxy.
    His company was called Magic Motorcycle.
    The design was pretty impressive. It was eventually sold to Cannondale.
    This article is from 1992.

    They will be welded, ground flush, and polished. They also have internal pins.
