New product incoming  at Alps Café Racers !

 

Hi guys ! I hope you are doing well, just wanted to let you know we are working on a range of gear knobs for classic minis: 

standard thread specs and premium local grown wood.

 

this first instance is old alps oak with a warm brown and black rib.

stay tuned for proper pictures ! :)

 

Benoit, would we be able to get them in a thread suitable for the KAD quickshifter?  i can't remember what it is, it's one of those funny modern metric threads :-)

 

Sure I can. however I don't know the KAD thread. :)

 

 

I'll find out  :geek:

Hi,

 

So: I've checked. I can do it. however I'll have to see if the pitch is not too find for wood: right now what we do is direct threading in wood, and the 1.25mm, I'm not sure if it's not too fine. but let me give it a try and we will see. in the mean time, next week, we should release the various shapes that will be available.

Speaking of shapes,

 

this is the model currently on my car: also oak but with 2 laser burned lined on the side of it.
