Next up is to make frame stops for the triples.
The fork swap has been (mostly) completed!
Initially, I thought the triple clamp swap would be straight across from frame to frame, but I was wrong. The headset bearings are the same, and the head tubes were only different by 1/16. Well, race to race was a lot different, so I had to make a .200" spacer to go between the spanner nut and the bearing. I'll need to make a better one later, but this one worked for the mockup and fab of the stops.
You may be shocked by the following photo of how I made the spacer:
That was a plain old miter saw with a generic carbide contractor's blade. It cuts aluminum quite well. I cut aluminum on my tablesaw as well. I know, I'm nuts! As the pic shows, I did not cut all of the way through the bat to get the spacer I was looking to make. IF you decide to cut AL like this, and you are cutting off a small piece like my spacer, NEVER cut all the way through! If a blade tooth hooks it, it will fly like a bullet! Also, let the blade stop before you bring it back up through the cut.
This is the rough cut spacer:
And this is where it went:
