Re: What is this buddy seat from?

Not to step on you govmule84, but that is a ridged set up. Springs and yoke pivot at the frame mount on ridge and on the seat for swingarm.
Seat mount set up for swing arm....

Re: Triumph Double Drag Bike Restoration

Re: 1951 Panhead build thread

Long one is good. Now lean the bitch bar back to or near seat post angle and I would be good with the look.

Re: Home made workshop tools

In my mind design, that I never built. It would look very similar to BobAsh's. My take would differ in that the rollers being fabed, and the motor would be a cheap HF 1800rpm motor. I would also use...

Re: Bastard Speed Twin build

Instead of chancing welding on the crank, clean up the OD then cut a new keyway in another place.

Re: Bastard Speed Twin build

I can't help with first hand knowledge of or pictures of your bike. But like any return spring, the eye of the spring goes in the direction of the gear moving to the parked position. The spring...

Re: Musings on the SU carb

As another thought you can make a simple plate adapter with a butterfly to mount between the carb and air cleaner. 3/8'' or 1/2'' thick is all it would need to be. Pirate a butterfly at or slightly...

Re: Musings on the SU carb

Have you leaned the bike far enough to get the gas coming out of the over flow. Then throttle closed to do prime kicks. As you say your bike may not respond to this, but be assured many do.

Re: Musings on the SU carb

Tickler or lean is about raising the fuel level in the float bowl. The result of which is the mixture enrichens.
to add: Fuel coming out of a over flow when leaned over, is how you know it is doing...

Re: 1977 ironhead battery??

Battery, Group Size B16-B, 260 CCA I would be in the lead acid conventional battery camp. So in your case make a tray to fit. Group B16 have been a OEM battery back to 1971 FX Superglide.

Re: Musings on the SU carb

Anything that raises fuel level in bowl enrichens the mixture. Your idle circuit with the throttle closed draws more fuel. Also the tipping till fuel over flows gives you the most you can get in the...

Re: Musings on the SU carb

You can lean the bike to the right to get a rich condition, then upright and start it. Not a tickler pushing the float down, but gets more gas in the float bowl and that enrichens the mixture.
