Re: Triumph Factory Custom - Bobber

Yeah front tyre size is a little wrong... Would make a good supermoto though (if they float your boat! :))

Re: Triumph Factory Custom - Bobber

I think the Scrambler looks like it would be awesome to have a rip around on! Although maybe not for those a bit short in the leg!!

Any of you seen these? Seems like Triumph got a bunch of their guys together to have a build of within the factory. One team built a scrambler and the other a bobber.

Re: 68 Triumph rigid with Suzuki front end.

Where did you get to with the build. I know there were a couple of negative comments about the front end, but I'm keen to see how it turn out/is developing.

Re: The Ribeye (motorcycle build thread)

I've never followed a Harley build before, so excuse my naivety! Just a couple of point, if the speedo is up near the tank, and your running 16s front and rear, why not take the speedo drive from the...

Re: 68 Triumph rigid with Suzuki front end.

Personally I'm not a big fan of USD forks on bobbers. The proportions just seem a little wrong, but thats personal taste, and that's what makes custom building great - they're individual. At least...

Re: Show me your handlebars...

This is true. There are loads of great looking bikes out there with different style bars, but I want to find a way if seeing what I like without buying a load of bars to trial. I'm in the process of...

Good shout, I'd completely forgotten about that thread. Thanks



Haha! No bobber chopper rivalry here (mainly because everyone knows bobbers are better :rolleyes:)

Show me your handlebars...

I can't see a thread on this, but I think it's a crucial part to the look of a bike. And since I can't decide what bars to use, I figured there must be other people in the same situation... Google...

Re: Front drum brake juice conversion

I can understand why you would want better braking performance, especially if you've come from riding modern bikes.

I'll watch this with keen interest, and will be taking a look to see if it would...

What tools?

Hey guys. I'm in the middle of buying some new tools. All my other bikes have been metric, so my tool collection is more biased towards those.

I have an A/F socket and spanner set, but when I...

Re: reb's Turbo Triumph Bobber Build...

Fair point, I missed the pull through. It's a good job the template is little large though, you want to allow a little for tyre fling. Granted its not often your going to be flat out and at full...

Re: reb's Turbo Triumph Bobber Build...

Are you going to limit the travel on the front end? I'm guessing those forks have approx 120mm of travel - how much space is there between the 'wheel' and the lower yoke?

I'm reserving judgement...

Re: '72 OIF build thread - my first build

So you get shops and garages, well that's just not on. I could probably just get the car in, but I wouldn't be able to get out of it!

I'll probably start my own thread when I make some serious...

Re: '72 OIF build thread - my first build

Sounds so much cooler when Americans call it a shop, rather that us Brits calling it our garage. Cheers for the PM, I didn't want DB's hard work spread all over the interweb!

Re: '72 OIF build thread - my first build

Cheers for that. The number from the swing arm pivot will help as I'm not 100% on the drop I'm planning yet. No rush though, got to get it registered over here first, and don't want to chop the frame...

Re: '72 OIF build thread - my first build

Are you running any drop? While the bike is still on the bench with the lower rails level, could you give a measurement from the bench to the swingarm pivot and from the bench to the axle?

Cheers for that. When lowering the tank, I take it you just shave the mounting rubbers? Any pics of your build?

Fair point! I'm building a T120R bobber. The idea is that the build is going to be as clean as possible, therefore no fake oil can to hide the electrics. There are a few things I want to do...

Yeah I know, trying to work out if it will be classified as a Hinckley Triumph by the time I've finished the build.
