Machined Spools for Redline...What do U Think???

Hell guys. I've been looking into carrying spools on our site because customers continually ask if we sell the spools when we sell them a spool stand. After looking into selling other business' spools, I determined that the best route to go was machining my own spools to sell. I'm posting a few pictures of the ones I plan to sell on our site for $19.99 a pair (mounted on my R1) and also a picture of the spools that were on it. I didn't really like the conventional spool that was on it because they look rather nappy once well scratched up and because the manufacturer made the slot too wide, it allows the bike to swing from side to side slightly, which I do not like. These spools I also plan to send with stainless hardware and thread lock already on the threads. Once again my other spools were not stainless and I got tired of looking at the rust. So I'm essentially posting this thread to ask what you guys think. Do you think they will sell well with the spool stands I offer? As usual they would be warrantied for life as all of our products are. Keep in mind that no dimensions are set at this point. I may choose to make them slightly thinner or what not. A big thanks in advance for all the feedback.

dpenoyer and moto, come on guys, I really need some feedback here. I don't want to spend $5000 on a lathe if I'm not going to sell any of them.

You only need a $350-800 lathe to make those small spools.
