My dad had an axle to grind

Shortly before Christmas I made some drawings of a custom axle so I could use my Triumph forks with a 21" Bultaco wheel. The axle on the Bultaco is just slightly smaller than the Triumph axle, so I had to make a stepped down axle with a removeable end (so the bearings can be slid on. My dad, being a machinist, hooked me up. He made me the axle and 2 pieces of aluminum spacer. Not only that he sent a gremlin bell with it. How rad is that?
