Re: Working with stainless

Hope it's okay to reanimate this thread, 12+ years in the grave. Also, perhaps many of you guys know all of this stuff (discussed at the linked site) already. If so, I don't mean to insult anybody's...

Re: Triumph Double Drag Bike Restoration

Have you discussed/described the injectors elsewhere, and if so would you please point me toward that discussion? Those things confuse me. Thanks.

Re: 1951 Panhead build thread

Well, okay then. All the best threads have (at least) one a-hole to blarp out contrary opinions -- it's a matter of balance -- and I'm happy to be that a-hole: it's a natural fit for me.

So, of...

Re: Triumph Double Drag Bike Restoration

Thanks for this thread, sir, and for directing me to olymoto.org. Beyond containing the build details of your double, that site looks to have a lot of highly interesting this&that for future...

Re: 1951 Panhead build thread

Run the 3" over, but re-lace your front hub to an 18" rim. Problem solved!

THAT WAS AN ATTEMPTED JOKE. Please, put it from your mind. Please!

Re: 1951 Panhead build thread

For what it's worth, I too can see the improvement in o/a profile when the front is hoiked up just that little bit.

But why not throw your pal's 3" longer forks on it and then ogle it over the...

Re: Just what I need Another project

In those magazines' early times, there was much more editorial interest in *old* old bikes -- not simply bikes which, by virtue of being 25 years old, were recognized as some kind of "vintage" by the...

Re: Just what I need Another project

Yow.

Wade, you seem like a fella who needs to own my hoard of c. 500 issues of Classic Bike and The Classic Motor Cycle magazines, '80s through about 2016.

But then you also seem like a guy who...

Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

I never saw such a low-dangling offside footpeg. Was it common practice to run them that low, c. 70 years ago? -- This is Nick Nicolaides' '49 500.

Re: Customizing a Daytona 500??

I agree about keeping the swingarm, at least for starters, for Goldy's and VonWegener's reasons.

Keep the swingarm, but don't build this. (Side question. I haven't seen an ARD ignition like that...

Re: My 69’ Harley Chopper Build

Welcome, Jimmy. I mostly don't speak to people named Jimmy, but am happy to make an exception.

I don't recall ever hearing anybody's personal experience with the 8-valve head. Can you dredge up anything to say about a Weslake (performance improvement/characteristics, easy or...

Goldy have you ever been involved with an OIF whose top tube got modified to relocate the oil filler in front of the fuel tank, where god intended it to be? Is that a medium-big deal with...

Re: Triumph

I love that bike to an unreasonable, if not unwholesome, degree.

I love TT pipes too, but I wonder if you've got enough ground clearance to enjoy them given their propensity to go :GRAUNCH: when...
