hey every one, encase you didnt read in a past post, i planned on makeing a billet brake peddle... when i wear my motocross boots i notice the peddle is to short and i cant work the back brake that well.

so I made a longer peddle ( by 1/4 of an inch ) and would like to try it out, if i ever wanna go back to the stock one i can make on in that length and with and since i will drill and tap the side of my brake lever ( i will remove the factory peddle ) i can make long or short levers or levers with more bite or levers that look more bling ect ect.

about the peddle:

the peddle is made from 15-5 heat treated "black hawk meterial" and yes black hawk as in the helicopters..... ( i make parts for them thats my job lol )

from squair stock to finnish, using a manual mill this would take me ( working threw lunch and 15 min befor work ) about 2 maybe 3 days at the most to make. the side that is steped down is steped for the screw heads, sort of like a counter sink so they sit flush

this is a vary light peddle...... i will make one with a cross bar going from the long side to longest side with a relief on eaither side some time, and yes i will be doing this for club members ONLY

well here you go

Yeah when that lake water get's gown in the 60's things shrink a lot. Besides, you need a new grass killer anyways.
Who said you have to get in the water!? lol It's big enough no one gets in the water lol

What subject would you like people to stay on? You didn't ask any questions, you didn't make a statement and ask for people's opinions, you didn't create a topic of discussion! Sooooooooo.......

the subject of this post actually..... i dont recall asking telling or showing pictures of a boat....

so when i come here to read the newest replies..... i really hate getting my time waisted with the silly nonsens. I see it alot around here, some one askes about shocks.... and gets silly replies about seats or headlights

not full of my self at all....... just a pet peave.. if i visit a post about fox shocks... i dont make a replay dealing with my dodge truck or ne thing of that nature.

people, people! my posts can be deleted out of this thread - for the threads sake and to stay on topic.

For what its worth...
It started as me wanting a CNC machine so i could make cool shit like Hawk. In order for me to buy a CNC machine, I would have to sell my boat to do so. So if I have to sell my boat to buy a CNC machine that would make kick ass shit like Hawk's, I dont see it being off topic at all. :D

Looks good! Do you think the extra leverage you apply will bend the arm itself?
