Re: Skinny swing-arm gennie shovel+pan chops

Love that bike, Dutch, esp. the fuel tank treatment.

Knuck39, your plans sound to me like there's an excellent custom bike lurking in that Super Glide prototype, and you're gonna set it free....

Re: One more Triumph Build

A low, dragster-type pushbar with a straightforward hemicircular bend up top would look the hound's bollocks, or the pig's mickey (or whatever it is that the British say), on that stripper of a...

Re: One more Triumph Build

Was going to keep my mouth shut for a change, but that sissy looks oddly fancy to be on such an admirably simple, stripped and basic Bonnie. I sure like the rest of the bike.

Re: My 73 Triumph build

Ron Finch once rode a nearly finished Triumph Triple chopper from Pontiac (MI) to Cincinnatti. "Nearly finished" = the seat hadn't come back from the upholsterer; therefore he stole a silly-ass...

Re: Post your sporty pics

Timmpa, I really like that bike. Thanks for showin' it off to us.

Everybody else here probably knows that frame on sight, but I don't. Who is the manufacturer?

Re: Need some help with the motorcycle headgear

Still, "cheap lids offer little if any protection" seems intemperate.

Re: Out with the old, in with the Older?

No, Cooks, I never heard of them. Thanks, that's a cool Fun Fact.

Re: Out with the old, in with the Older?

Nah, no, don't go to any trouble. I asked out of (mostly) idle curiosity, and you've answered one question to my effulgent satisfaction: Bakelite!

My questions concerning the dime were more in the...

Re: Need some help with the motorcycle headgear

Some cheaper helmet mfgrs. use the same exterior shell for a range of nominal head sizes. The innards snap in and out. Along with making those liners easier to wash and dry, this means that if a shop...

Re: Norton Model 99

Well that's a cheerful thing to hear.

Forgive me for not paging back to look, but is your new old black red Atlas 99 in a wideline or a slimline frame?

Re: New member

It's good to be poor if it means you get to ride a Triumph. Sure wish I wasn't so damn wealthy. Welcome, Thoward. Might you have any pics of your bike, or bike-in-progress, you'd want to post up?

Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

A disgracefully pretty brakeless Sonicweld Daytona.

Re: Norton Model 99

I figured you'd make short work of that flaw.

The flat seat, though, that's kinda intriguing. What does it look like on the Atlas without the cafe hump?

Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

I have a complicated, even a slightly hostile, attitude toward my balls -- they've done nothing but get me into trouble, all my life* -- but I wouldn't go racing on (I assume) a lumpy and rutted dirt...

Re: vintage pics o' the day

Why god, y'all, that woman is near naked, and with an impressionable child nearby. Shows you what association with motorcyclists will do to a person's moral character.

Re: Norton Model 99

Both tanks look swell, of course.

I hate myself for asking this. But are you gonna choose to live with the seat's departure from horizontal? I'm talking about the baseline going droopy toward the...
