What is it?

I ran across the above in a magazine - it's an ad for a product...can you guess what that product is?

I share this to show that design inspirations can come from nearly anywhere. Any idea what it is yet?

My first thought was, "That would make a great stencil for painting fabric." I also liked the way the design was slightly tilted, and thought about piecing and applique possibilities. But what is it?

If I use it, I probably would eliminate or modify the outer ring. But the rest of it has lines I really like, whatever it is.

Figure it out yet? I'm guessing probably not, unless you're a mechanic or into motorcycles. The ad was in my Roadracing World magazine and that is the inner workings of a motorcycle brake.
