Looks awesome, I think your missin the handlebars though . I like the exhaust. Is that an actual spare tire ring, or a repro fender?

Looks great. I can always count on you for a bike to be jealous of. I too love the exhaust, very tidy.

That doesnt need paint, its fine the way it is!

On a side note, I'd like to know what kind of primer/prep is on the sheet metal. Im totally in love with that color..its looks a bit darker than regular grey primer.

How is your oil tank being held? I don't see any upper or rear mounts.

zack roberts at full custom fab welded all my tabs/brackets, did the fender struts, exhaust and taillight/license plate setup. he actually welded the frame as well, it's a flyrite loner. he's a ruler.

the primer i got at wal-mart, duplicolor sandable primer. i think it looks good as is....but i wanna paint it. i've had a couple of different bars on there, some drags and 12 in apes...neither looked right.

i'm ready to get on the road, meet up with some austin jj'ers...

Is the area where the fender struts attach to the fender reinforced at all? I can't tell for sure from the pics, it looks like it isn't. Those tire covers are not very thick and your fender is very likely to crack if you don't shore it up some. Just a suggestion.

Has neat looking lines. I would run low-rise super bars with minimal pullback if it were mine. . .

I'll take "inspired originality" over "classic triumph symmetry" nearly every day of the week. This bike (and its asymmetrical exhaust) looks awesome.

I'm inclined to agree with you...usually...but this bike nailed it. Tight, clean, and simple.

Press fit with set screws, most likely. You wouldn't be able to thread one-piece bars like that on the fork if it used threaded studs. Nicke is a member here, you could ask him. . .
