We now have our first set of casting for the 1-Piece magnesium centre spinner wheels. Creasey's cast and then heat-treated last a couple of weeks ago. See the attached photos. And they look excellent. I was particularly worried about the blend of the spokes into the rim, but this looks exactly as per my CAD models. So have to extend my thanks to Allwick's the pattern maker and particularly John the owner for the detailed feedback he gave during the design phase.

The next stage is machining of these casting to give the first road set of rims, an 8.5" front and 14" rear. This should take place in November, and once they are ready I will post a detailed set of images. And about time to order a set of road tyres.
