I need to make another set of custom hubs for my wheels on the front of my craftsman and I'm  just seeing if there would be any interest in me making a few extra sets and selling them. (I could possibly continue making them too if the demand is there.)

The hubs will work on stock 3/4in spindles with just a slight modification to the inner wheel seat if it uses the cap shaped style.

The housing is dom tubing with with two bearing recess bored into it.
The bearings will be a good quality sealed ball bearings that will utilize a pressed in fitment in the hub.  
The plate where the wheel bolts up to will either be 5/16 or 3/8 thick (depends on what my local steel yard carries.)  
Wheel studs will be automotive style pressed in ones.    

When i make my hubs they will be setup for a 4 on a 110mm bolt pattern that uses m10 wheel studs.
Then for the finish of them - I can keep it cheap and you assemble and weld them up yourself.  OR i can finish them and powder coat them black.  

Price point. - Not sure yet  I know the wheel studs a 2.98 a pc, bearing are almost 4 dollars each (I think I could find cheaper ones).  I'm going to outsource the machine work this time so I'm waiting on a price for that and the price of the metal for them.


Now here is where it gets tricky if I was to keep making / offering  them do I try and custom tailor each set to the order or just offer a few select styles and that is it.

Bolt pattern - There are so many 100mm 110mm 115mm ect.   (And remember sport quads ran a really big bolt pattern on their front ends like 144mm and 156mm.  Then don't forget Kawasaki did a lot with a 4 on 4in bolt pattern, and golf carts run that  bolt pattern too.

Wheel stud size - most atvs run a m10 but a lot of UTV's run an m12. Then the 4 on 4, I've seen with a 7/16 stud 1/2 stud and a metric stud.  (Every different stud size will need adifferent size of hole drilled for it to  get pressed into. )

So what do y'all think , feel free to give me your input, suggestions ect.
Or let me know if your interested in a set.
Ps. Rears are in the works too.


Here are some pics of what they will look like. Front - Custom Front Hubs  20190410

A lathe.

My lathe is on the smaller scale and the disc are a pain to setup on it.  So this go around in going to build some sort of fixture plate to hold them, just to speed up the setup time.
