    I think @1olbull had some made custom for his bike. I'd like to know the particulars as well.

    Be sure NOT to by any made in China. Even the top brands have their economy lines.

    All balls is now a Chinese product. I went with a local manufacture in Tulsa. You take your dimensions and bearing in and they produce a bearing for you. Cost a bit but well worth it. Check locally and you probably have something similar in your area. Place i used is actually a franchise and are located throughout the United States. Will look up name of place and hook you up. Have to leave for work so it will be tomorrow. Global bearing supply and manufacture.
