I've contacted a few bike shops, hardware shops. Bolt shops. No one has anything M12 1mm thread. Regardless of length or head. There maybe a rare industry somewhere that has something but I haven't found it.

One place offered to make one for $80 and 3 weeks to produce it.

I've ordered something cheap from China eta mid Dec.

I'll have to buy a car or something lol
any pics, did you search by manufacturer?? how about these :

I had a new spare that I offered to send. He didn’t want to pay postage from the US.

Hey, thanks for asking about the Motoped. It’s still in the shop. I’ve purchased a 15kw capable Golden Motor, a 300A+ capable ASI BAC4000 controller from Alan Hu, and a 200A capable 42Ah 18650 custom battery pack from PowerVelocity. I’ve figured out where everything is going to go and how I’m going to build the composite/aluminum battery box. I’m clearing out a couple of mid drive orders and a custom trike build and then I’m on the Motoped build. I’ll be posting updates here.

Happy Thanksgiving!

No good deed goes unpunished.
I thought perhaps Fastenal, headquartered here, might have them in AU. A kick search of Google AU got LOTS of sources.

Thanks Justin_le we're here thanks to you. All the best to the mods for their tireless work keeping it on an even keel.

I wish they’d get that shipping wormhole finished between the US and Oz.

Off topic:

Hey Mike,

remember when we joked about velomobiles with mounted machine guns a few years back in this thread?
Well, still got no machine guns but finally a Milan in my stable: https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewt ... 3#p1464663
My advice: Under no circumstance, ever, do a test ride in a fast velomobile! :D

Cheers
Marc

Greetings LR kit users.

I havn't posted on here for a while... cause nothing's been broken for a while.

Is the blackspire still the recommended part to use as a tensioner for the LR kit ?

Mine's looking very chewed up.
