    As the title says, looking for a machinist to turn a spacer set just like this for a friend, he's doing a F2 wheel swap on a 1986 VFR750F. I don't have enough access to the lathe at work right now and quite honestly I don't have the time to turn some from scratch. Too many projects and other shit going on right now.

    The spacers pictured are mine, I can provide some simple drawings with dimensions. I already have some stainless round stock that seems appropriate, but I don't know EXACTLY what it is.

    It is not ridiculously hard as a simple spring center punch will indent.

    If anybody can provide a lead to get a quote, that would be great. Shipping pretty much anywhere in the US is not a problem.

    Thanks for looking.

    You "stock" spacers for 1986-87 VFR wheel swaps? Are they designed to use with a stock, unmodified VFR rear brake caliper bracket?

    I ended up getting a ridiculous "friends and family" deal from somebody over on hawkgtforum before Jamie reminded me. $33 dollars including shipping and 6061 material.
