    Managed to find a bit of time to finish off the rear hub and broach the keyway. The keyway is cut using a broach which runs in a guide inside the hub. I had to machine the guide to suit the hub diameter, then it was simply a case of pressing the broach through the hub using lots of cutting oil. The broach is spaced out on successive passes using shims until the final depth is achieved.

    Next job is to finish machining the rear axle. I have to mill a slot to accept the key and turn threads on the ends for the axle nuts.

I picked up these wheels from a fella in Murray Bridge. They are 17" postie bike wheels. Two fronts and two rears. One of the rears is actually a C90 wheel (I think) which is a tad narrower, but not by much. They could do with a clean up as they have a bit of surface rust on them but at least I now have some wheels.   More ...

  • Mick replied to a discussion, DIY Leaf Springs
    I made some from mild steel and skipped the heat treating. Mild still has some spring to it but the elastic limit is nowhere near as much as for spring steel.

    I haven't tested them yet but think they'll work okay, although they may be more cosmetic than functional.

    DIY Leaf Springs
    Found some info on the heat treating stages required for making leaf springs so leaving it here for later...


    • Steps in making a leaf spring without special equipment
    • Anneal the steel strip raw material - Heat to approx 800~850°C (cherry to bright red) and allow to cool s-l-o-w-l-y in air.
    • Cut, machine and form and shape the individual leaves.
    • Test assemble the complete spring assembly.
    • When satisfied, disassemble the spring again and harden the leaves (individually). [Heat to approx 820°C (bright red) and quench in oil].
    • Clean the surface with steel wool or similar to see the colours clearly when tempering (next).
    • Temper the leaves. [Heat to approx 320°C (dark blue/grey) and quench in oil].
    • Clean the leaves, and paint or apply final finish if desired.
    • Assemble the spring.

    These look promising, for the cost I'll give them ago.

    Yes, those are the ones I mentioned (or very similar.) There's definitely some of the US guys with those wheels on their carts. I think someone on the FB page might also have bought a set too. Shouldn't be too hard to get them fitted up.

  • Mick replied to a discussion, Introductions
    Welcome aboard.

    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to shout out. I've not finished mine yet but have worked though most of the tricky bits so feel free to give me a shout.

    The 'resources' section is also a good place to start for technical stuff. It's an 'in progress' kind of website but most of the info is there. Much of it is also borrowed from the guys in the US who have been at this for a while longer so much of what you read in the US forums is also applicable

  • Mick replied to a discussion, Parts Sources
    I bought mine from gumtree, it took a while for some to pop up so I can only suggest that you might need to keep an eye open for them.

    Although with that said, there are also some new 17" wheels that the guys in the States have used that are available on ebay and come complete with tyres. I'm not 100% sure what's required to use these, but it's probably not to hard to figure out. They appear to be front wheels from a dirt bike as the tyres are a bit 'knobbly'.

    I can say that my 'cheap' gumtree wheels did not end up being so cheap once I had them powder-coated and some spokes fixed up so the initial outlay for some new ones might not be as bad as it initially looks.
