Lightweight victory with plastic bearings in racing

Lightweight victory with plastic bearings in racing
Two-wheel motorsport has a whole range of different vehicle classes; down to single-cylinder machines.

Safety, convenience and attractiveness with locking lever hinges

Safety, convenience and attractiveness with locking lever hinges
Extending its hinge range, WDS Component Parts has introduced new locking lever hinges. These are typically for use with aluminium profile space-frames, but are expected to also find a wide range of other applications. Developed from a standard hinge, the new products have extra capability built into them because the usual hinge pin is replaced by a bolt with an indexing clamping lever. This enables the hinge to be locked into any desired position, fully open, fully closed or partially open, simply by pulling and twisting the handle to secure the hinge.
