Hi All,
Does anyone make TC front brake slave cylinders in aluminium?
Thanks,

Aluminum corrodes nicely - I send my old iron ones to Mark Frappier of Agawam, Massachusetts, and have them sleeved in stainless. They last forever. He cannot do TC master cylinders, due to their construction.

I'm not aware of any aluminum cylinders but I've had mine sleeved with brass in the past. Works a treat. Many miles later they are still in perfect condition.

Thanks all,
Corrosion is not a problem as its for a sprint and hill climb special. Just wondered as need to buy and looking at options.
