Re: Triumph Axle Swap

I think I would try to figure out the brake anchor before I spent any money.

Re: EMGO Reproduction Tank knee pad fasteners: WTH?

Bob, the correct screw is a flat head slotted 1/4 x 26 and not very long, around 1/2". The head is shaped a little differently than normal, and may be a tad bigger diameter than normal. They also...

Re: Need more info Triumph race engine

I saw this motor in a guys' shop in Oregon about 2 years ago. I took some pics and checked, same motor. He didn't seem to know much about it.

Re: Checked out the crank....NO SLUDGE TRAP!

Seems to me the balance of the crank would be changed by removing the tube, unless someone changed things, drilled more holes.

Re: What are these Wheels off of

Those small conical hubs are found on triumph / bsa b25, t25, b50 oif models, as well as triumph tr5t. 21" rim was used on the tr5t in the later years.

Re: How much to cut forks down after hardtailing Trump?

Seems to me with a 3" drop it's gonna be tough to keep the pegs and pipes from dragging the road if you try to level the thing. I'd mock that stuff up before cutting anything.

Re: Soldering or brazing holes in Triumph gas tank?

The surrounding area of that hole looks like it has been corroding as well, just not through yet. It's probably paper thin, and may crack later. Maybe flood it with solder. I'd keep an eye out for a...

Re: Used triumph connecting rods

BSA twin rods aren't polished, I don't think nortons are either. And didn't later 750 triumphs use those same type rods as bsa? I can't see bead blasting hurting anything.

Re: Roths Megacycle :re the motorcycle

I remember seeing chains used on choppers back in the late 60's, dog collars, but don't know if they stretched or snapped, but they were on bikes that were ridden hard. Pretty sure they were welded...

Re: Tenino Swap meet

Wouldn't miss it. My favorite. I hear there's no car show on sunday this year. Too bad, I like to camp and make a weekend out of it.

Re: Triumph Drum Pic?

Those legs pictured will cause problems when used on early front ends (pre '69). They are intended for 6 3/4" forks, might work if you remove 1/8" from the brake lug, but they're shorter than the...

Re: This is the designated "how much is it worth" thread.....

Value of those gauges depends on the model number found on the face, at the bottom, and if they work or not, when spun with a drill. I think they are a little earlier than '71, which probably had...

Re: Home made workshop tools

I use mine to reface valves. Gotta be an accurate setup, though. I use a collet and get good results.

Tony, I found the triumph part number in the parts book, but never found a source for the sleeves. Who sells them?

Re: Triumph drilled timing gears...

I thought all pre unit gears were 3/8" thick, and 1/2" was the unit gears. Is that wrong?

Re: Triumph 6T front wheel rim offset

Re: Triumph primary belt guard I've been making and an aluminum welding question.

I'd worry about that thin strap in the middle- those covers (cast) crack at the slightest bend.

Re: Map Cycle 16" spokes for Hd rim (Triumph hub)

Aftermarket spokes (buchannons, etc.) aren't butted, at least none of the sets I've had. Conical hubs have a bend like that, and the alloy conical hub is thicker, needing a longer hooked end.

Re: Map Cycle 16" spokes for Hd rim (Triumph hub)

Those spokes look like conical hub spokes. My guess is you have the wrong ones.
