Re: The Spin-Tech, Gyro, Rotor, & Miscellaneous Detangler Thread!!!

Here is one of my more recent Spin-Tech Hybrid creations. I also used one of my barrel adjuster mods on this project!

Super easy bro. I would just pick up a can of blue spray from Home-Depot. The color matches pretty well. Spray it out onto the tip of a small paint brush and touch it up. Looks too nice as OG to do a complete restore. I'd maybe paint the hollow bolt gloss black as well. Will look killer on your pc ooz. Unless your switching it over to your "2 face" compe! wink

Yeah. The set up you had looked pretty good. I am sure if they had to do it over again that splitter wouldn't even be part of the set up!2 cables all the way down are where it's at! wink

Spin-Tech tip of the day!

One problem you may run across while restoring a Spin-Tech is dents and/or pitting on the stem. Usually you see this after stripping off the old paint. After painting these don’t always get covered up. So what I have done is used Plumbing Hand Moldable Epoxy Putty. It can be found in any hardware store, or in automotive at Wal-Mart. Generally it is used patch up holes in mufflers or pipes. It comes in a reseal able tube, so you can cut off a small piece at a time and save the rest for use at other times. The activating agent is in the middle of the putty, so after cutting off a small portion you simply need it all together between your fingers. After needing it you need to rub it across and into any defects in your stem. After only about 5 minutes it will harden. I usually let it sit for a day. But after a few hours you can work with it. Once hardened I take sandpaper and smooth out the finish. The holes are then filled and the paint finish or powder coat should look great!

Re: The Spin-Tech, Gyro, Rotor, & Miscellaneous Detangler Thread!!!

Spin-Tech Lower Hardware Options

One of the harder things to find if you are putting together a Spin-Tech set up from scratch is the 2 to 1 transfer bracket and the clamp nut and washer. 

http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/55127/spin-tech-hardware-011596647d86b.jpg


But there are ways around it is you are just looking for function. Of course many on this site want their set up to be all OG, and that is understandable. But if you just want it to work you can do a few other things.

The easiest thing to do is just get a London Mod off Dan's Compe or Flatland fuel, run two cables the whole way, and be done with it.

http://flatlandfuel.com/odysseylondonmod.aspx

http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/55127/odysseylondonmod59664795e2.jpg

or you can run the Murray Mod! lol

The Murray Mod - Replaces the Spin-Tech transfer bracket, clamp washer, and nut until you can find an original if desired.

http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/55127/1988-dyno-detour-0195966477575.jpg

Most Dyno's from 1988 on have one cool feature, the frame cable mount is center the upper frame tube. What I did was took a London Mod and mounted it through the upper frame tube cable guide. I also took a 5 inch metal iron piece, drilled a hole in each end, bent each end, and mounted it to the upper frame tube using the London mod and upper cable guide. Then I took a cable guide and ran it through opposite direction through the opposite hole of the metal iron piece. This way I was able to mount the cable guides and not have to drill a hole in my frame. Instead of using a clamp washer and nut I took part of a small door hinge that has 3 holes and modified it. I rounded the edges using a grinder and then smoothed the edges using a wire wheel. Using a drill I made the 2 forward holes bigger and inserted cable stops.

Re: The Spin-Tech, Gyro, Rotor, & Miscellaneous Detangler Thread!!!

I was fortunate enough a few years ago to buy a Spin-Tech in the original box. Of course the original box had some wear to it. But I decided, with the help of Sal at SVGraphics, to have this box reproduced. I had 50 of them made (you don't ant to know the price lol) for my personal collection and to distributte to a few friends and die-hard Spin-Tech enthusiast as well. I had them on eBay for a while. But supply is very low so and I do not plan to have them reprinted again, so I took down the post. The following pic shows the original box as well as the miniature mock up I was given. Those that were fortunate enough to have gotten one of these off me has a true rare limited edition 1 of 50 collectors piece. smile

Good stuff guys! Scooters with Spin-Techs! Rocks! cool
I'll have to add that Fishbone Rotor pic into my collection. Never heard of that one! Think I'll move that up to the miscellaneous rotors post at the beginning of this thread.
And thanks for the info whitebread! Glad to see others starting to contribute! smile
