I did make a couple of half scale diffs for the grandsons Willys jeep, but as the 535 isn't a bike I'll pass on that, sorry!!

Hi Mick, what about knocking up a blank for the rear diff/wheel? I was thinking nothing fancy, even leaving it blank so I could put a BMW emblem sticker in the middle? I could supply some stainless threaded bar for the center or stainless bolts/cap heads/domed nuts etc (I work as an engineer in the food industry, so have an abundance of stainless bits and pieces).
What ya reckon?

Actually, I think a lot of us would pay a little for one for end of the hole...

But, um, not me, I use my big shackle lock through there... ::)

Brian, where do you store the lock on your bike? I struggled to find somewhere to fit an Optimate phone charger on mine.
If it was the centre hole I thought about keeping the plug in with an "o" ring and just push it in.
I had a quick look on the net and they want over £60 for them.

Regards.  Mick

I don't...

I use the Abus Granit in the garage along with an Oxford Products front disc lock and a whopping great 19mm chain locked to an Anti-Pinch Pin through the hole through the lower frame and the other end locked to another A-PP through the grage wall.

When I travel I store the Granit in a Sport Case and the Disc Lock in its supplied bag tethered to the rear frame. Or I leave the shackle lock at home and take a big chain and lock if travelling with other bikes. The big Granit will also fit in a big tank bag.

I work on the principle that if they want it they are going to have it, along with my garage wall when at home and when away from home I only have to do the equivalent of running faster than you, not the hungry lion, in other words make it more secure than the next bike along.

The big scam in Reading a few years ago was aralditing the lock on your chain. You come home from work on the train, call the breakdown service who tackle the lock and chain and the next morning at the station your bike has no security and they nick it then. One guy spent two days in a sleeping bag under the arches, playing at being homeless, watching his bike until the thieves arrived in a van and then he smashed them with a baseball bat and slashed their tyres all while calling the law.

Neat...

Seems fair to me !!!
I have a decent chain and lock for when we're away but they have to travel in the tank bag.
You're right about if they want it they'll have it. With the advent of battery powered tools (angle grinder) and ultra thin cutting discs they can cut most locks off in seconds.

Hi Mick, yes the whole through the final drive. A disc one end with a shaft fixed to it, then a disc with a hole the other end, then a bolt through the disc to fix it all in place.......simples  ;D
Is this something you think you could knock-up?
Regards
Bian

Hello Bian, that wouldn't be a problem. But an "o" ring would hold the caps in I think without the need for a bolt or tools to remove/replace. They could be recessed to take the Bm logo or whatever you wanted  to fit. There's some 45mm dia emblems on fleabay for a fiver.
I have a couple of jobs on but I'll check it out.

Regards.  Mick

That sounds awesome.
I assume they would be fixed together, so all you would do to install is push it in from either side until it’s flush with the wheel/final drive?
What sort of cost do you think? Rough figure, won’t hold you to it.
Also did you want me to get the logo’s, and send them to you before you start?
Regards
Bian
