Ill bet he wanted some z rims and didn't want to pay for them and was creative. That would be my guess.

You don't read much do you..? He CLEARLY stated WHY he did it
"I started off with a tatty, damaged and hubless set of early etched logo skyways which Scorcher Mick was kind enough to let go at a good price."

So ill explain, his set of jacked up skyway mag were jacked up. No hubs chunks missing... 100% unrideable..... Can't be used in a safe manner... Nore can they be used on a show bike. So he did what any one with half a brain did and made them work..
Lol sorry. But it's right there lol.

I disagree with your reply. Why would he buy a set of ratty mags to do this with is the question? He bought the mags to do this is my take on the question. Great question. If he already owned them, your answer works, but, getting them from someone else means there was a plan in advance.

+1. That's where my assumption came from. Because the look of the the skyway when cut looks real similar to a z rim....


I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile

Well remembered big_smile

Yeah, about 7 prototypes later, alot of head scratching and massive amounts of redesigning for crank clearances etc they are nearly there. Got some elements water jet cut in september and besides a few fine tolerance differences they are almost there. 
They have been a real labour of love with some major setbacks but the end is in sight cool

cool

big_smile I am a cabinet maker by trade so i cut two blocks of oak. I sat a sharp pencil on one and rotated the rim on a flat table marking the width from the centre of the rim, then flipped the rim over to do the other side.
The spacing on the circumference took a while but essentially consisted of marking the rim either side of a block of oak planed to precisely the right thickness cool


Got a set of Knight bike co sith bars? Then shoot me a price please smile

Those look really great. The decals on the hub make it really pop. I can't wait to see what else you do to the bike, or when it's finished.
Cheers man
