Re: Narrowing D-60s (specifically the rear axle)
To just shorten the tubes the rossetts?(holes on the pumpkin that are filled with weld to hold the tube in) are burned out and the weld around the tube is ground off. The tube in then pulled out, cut to length, reinstalled, a jig like the one in the high pinion page is used to ensure straightness and then rewelded. As for the shaft, custom shafts can be made or the shaft can be cut down and resplined.
