Re: The designated springer ID thread

Huh.

Looking at post 683, pics #3 and 4, I would guess not. To me the front legs look too deeply indented to be modified cylindricals.

Re: Flathead build "the white horse"

Ah, that's gonna be fun. I'm not crazy about the low-tunneled fuel tank (although the tank itself is swell); but, y'know, fuck what I think. It'll be a nice bike.

White all over kind of makes me...

Re: The designated springer ID thread

Thank you. (I forgot about it too.)

Pretty sure I've never seen I-beam front legs before. Says here (Wiki) that the RL was produced 1932-36. Were the forks exclusive to that model, anybody know?

Re: Triumph

How'd I miss that post?

It looks really good. Your peg-and-pipe mounts look stock, which I assume was the goal.

Re: New here, new year!

Hlo Hannes, welcome.

I suspect many of us JJ lounge lizards hardly ever visit the Introductions thread. I don't. Anyway, sorry you got a cold (or at least silent) reception.

Re: show me your flat trackers and desert racers

Didn't know Sprints were still racing in '71; I mean, not as seriously as this one is set up to be. How little I know. Oh the ignorance of me!

Re: build thread number one - WM20

Looks as if the other rear leg has been slobbered on by weasels, too. No?

Re: Almost !! 66 BSA 500 Single project

Always liked their looks. Have you had them before? Do they merit their bad reputation in stock form (or in any form)?

Thanks for showing. Sounded healthy.

Re: Wayne Engineering frame clone

Oh, heh. "Meriden, CT, USA" not "BSA."

Did you change the angle where the bottom chainstays depart from the back downtube? The original frame looks a little bowlegged, inelegant. Yours looks...

Re: The 10 most influential bikes of the last ten years

But why not put the mag in the usual place, behind the cylinders? ... Oh, never mind.

Re: The 10 most influential bikes of the last ten years

The black bike: What's going on with the timing cover? I don't see a magneto in the usual place, and obviously there's a drive housing on the front.

Re: My Pre-unit project.

Big improvement! Any chance you're going to clean up the sliders, i.e. cut those (?) reflector mounts off?

Nice work.

Re: OIF Triumph semi-restoration

Just that I've had a couple of '71 engines -- no, three -- that ran excellently and long.

Re: OIF Triumph semi-restoration

Do I deduce correctly that the engine is a '71? My favorite. The rest of the '71, not so much ... at all ... but I'm glad you've started another of your good threads.

Re: Bastard Speed Twin build

If memory serves, the '52 I rode (50 years ago) had a non-synchronized transmission. Is that amenable to upgrading without a great deal of work?

'Course, I'm not even sure that memory *does*...

Re: The designated springer ID thread

Hey, Gonzo. If it's no inconvenience, would you post a pic or two of the whole springer (as opposed to detail shots)? A side view and a full-frontal would be swell. Thanks.

Jocke. In your first post, the sixth imageshows a built-up or welded-on flat-topped panel on the neck. It strongly suggests a place for a VIN (vehicle identification number) to be stamped. Is this...

Re: Old Tools Thread

These (first two pics) are repros. But Bugatti did manufacture them, and use them in their factory. No visible holddowns = there's an unseen stud to secure the vise to a workbench.
