Re: A “DIFFERENT” Angry Monkey Motorcycles Kustom ’61 Triumph Pre Unit

Gotta get me a TIG machine. Awesome example of utilizing the parts you have on hand.

Another great build Dan. I love all the bracketry, especially the exhaust and electrics. Makes me want to start all over on mine. :D

Re: The Deadbird Chop – pic heavy

I don't know if the petcocks leak or not. I've never had any fuel in the tank yet. I hope they don't. Guess I better keep an eye on 'em.

PIPES!

I spent the Independence day holiday cutting up some ratty old pipes and fitting the pieces into this set of high pipes. I need to give props to Clay at Atom Bomb and Dan at Angry Monkey...

Re: The Deadbird Chop – pic heavy

Dan, yes the fender struts are all welded up. Unfortunately, that's about all I got done last month. The original plan was to have this thing on the road by June 1st. Didn't happen. In fact, I...

Re: The Deadbird Chop – pic heavy

Jeff the TIG welder was pretty surprised when I showed up with my parts in a jig. He said most dudes just give him a handful of parts and expect him to make 'em fit. I think it was worth the effort.

Re: The Deadbird Chop – pic heavy

Thanks guys. I puzzled over the rear hardware a lot. Probably had half a dozen different versions mocked up. I'm pretty satisfied with the results though. Now I just hope I don't break that tail...

Re: The Deadbird Chop – pic heavy

No paint yet Nick. I've been fiddling with the fender struts again. My paint guy wants the fender before he shoots the tank. I hope to get it to him this weekend.
