Re: lackluster '68 Bonnie Chop

I miss updates on this thread, too. In fact, I blatantly "borrowed" this idea for a front wheel hub on my friend's Honda race bike. It will be featured on "Naked Speed" which is the rebranding of...

Re: No hands rider/68 TR6 build

That's interesting looking, I guess you could sell the normal pressure plate to recoup some cash.

Re: No hands rider/68 TR6 build

I sure would hate for a Sprotor to be my only "decent" brake. Everyone I know who has used them said they don't have much grip. They sound like a good idea but if you get just a little grease on a...

Re: Help me ID this tank, also looking for a cap

Thanks for the lead, guys. I couldn't find any pics of K&P motorcycles on line but I did find the go cart company and sent them an email looking for more information.

Help me ID this tank, also looking for a cap

I picked up this gas tank from a friend a while back and I'm going to need a cap for the tank. If I knew what the tank is it would be very helpful.
It's a great looking little peanut tank with...

Re: No hands rider/68 TR6 build

I have never seen a Newby belt drive for sale used. I have rarely seen belt drives for sale used. I think the cost of purchasing one and the improvements they do to a bike make it a keeper. You might...

Re: No hands rider/68 TR6 build

For what it's worth John Scerri (Lytedrive) in Australia made a Norton diaphragm dry belt clutch for my Triumph.

Re: No hands rider/68 TR6 build

The hydraulic clutch may be no easier to pull than a well lubricated cable. For example my 99 Ducati with hydro clutch has a much stiffer clutch lever than my Triumph, but it's got more horses to...

true. I've laced one to a 21" rim but it was a long time ago.

Re: Triumph TLS laced to 16" rim

flatman: Not the conical TLS but a 68-69-70 model.
VonWegener: Hey aren't Honda rims 36 spoke?
The TLS hub is a large diameter but it has nail spokes.

Triumph TLS laced to 16" rim

Hey I was thinking about running a 16" HD type drop center rim on the front of a '69 Bonneville. I know I saw it in an old copy of Iron Horse magazine but I don't know if it even fit in the forks. ...

Re: Dry primary on race bike?

Lube and wipe the chain clean, run the clutch dry for the race. Check the basket and center for banged up slots, in a pinch you can file down the burrs, check the tangs on the plates for damage....

Re: First triumph. Best years?

My first Triumph was a 68 TR6. It was on consignment at Storm's Cycles where I was buying Norton Commando parts. This was back around 1993 or so. I was told it was a PX model meaning purchased by an...

Re: No hands rider/68 TR6 build

I should elaborate: spring only forks tend to lock up/skip/bounce the front wheel easier than hydraulically damped ones. Some springers have a damper on them, but not many.
Yours is short and that...

Re: No hands rider/68 TR6 build

On a standard motorcycle with suspension 75 front 25 rear is ideal but on a springer front and rigid rear I would go with 50-50 or even favor the rear. Springers on rigid frames can lock up the front...

I've seen fins welded to covers, then ground down. They looked great.
