    @R7 - is this what the nut is supposed to be or does it have a hex head like in your post?

    Either way: if you know the specs, I would be honored to make a part for a such a beautiful bike if it comes to that.

    Yea, this thread is awesome. I had no idea how cool these bikes are. Just assumed they were a typical "race replica" .

    Thatís a great offer and I really appreciate it. I may take you up on that.

    I have the piece in your picture, which is the original R7 part. The difference on my bike, is the fork bottoms are different. The fork bottoms on the bike, donít have the holes drilled or tapped for the 2 smaller locking nuts. The sleeve portion OD of the original axle nut is also smaller than the ID of the fork bottom.
    I think itíll be cleaner to have the hex head rather than drill and tap the fork bottoms for the two locking bolts

    Gotcha. Agreed on not tapping the lowers you have. Seems pretty straight-forward. The right-hand side use a spacer or is it machined into the axle itself?

    You can try an ohlins dealer for that part. The forks are pretty standard from them and the insert are what are specific.

    The right side also has a spacer. I have 1 correct spacer, that will work on both sides. In theory, I could buy, or have a copy made of the one spacer I have, and make it work. It would not solve the nut side being locking I added a couple pictures of the sleeve spacer that came with the bike

    Iíve tried reaching out to Ohlins, and even searching their site for parts. Any similar part gets redirected to the Japanese site where the parts listed, are bike specific. If dimensions of actual parts were listed, I think I can figure out the correct part to buy.
    By the way, thank you again for the brake calipers. Iím waiting on the bolts and spacers to mount them.

    This is some weird axle voodoo here. What in the world is the point of this hardware?

    Looks like Ohlins R&T forks. I'm pretty sure all the bottoms are the same. So you get whatever hardware from them to adapt to your bike. This bike also has aftermarket wheels on it.Could have been wheels meant for a different axle and knowing what this bike is a custom made piece isn't out of the question. Of course without seeing whats going on first hand I am completely taking a guess.

    I think the axle parts are a mix of original R7 parts, and some aftermarket/Ohlins parts. In an ideal situation, Iíd like to find all the original R7 partsÖ tho that is the most unlikely scenario.

    I have the OE wheels that came with the bike, they are the same axle size, same spacing, same brake rotor mounting as the aftermarket carbon wheels. Iíve tried them both on the bike, I have the same issues with both sets of wheels.
