Re: Customizing a Daytona 500??

Haven't seen an ARD Mag in a while...fitted an offset belt driven one to a Honda chopper about ten years ago...talk about form over function, but at least it is unique.

Re: Customizing a Daytona 500??

Due to it's smaller displacement, they tend to be overlooked, but in my not-so-humble-opinion, the Triumph 500 may be the best overall package that Triumph ever put together.
Do yourself a favor and...

Re: OIF Triumph semi-restoration

I would resist the urge to relocate the filler...in the first place the oil tank is going to accumulate some scale from the welding process...they are hard enough to clean out as it is, being stuck...

Re: OIF Triumph semi-restoration

Got quite a bit done in the past couple of weeks. Fork seals in place, front end and swing arm. Found a nice looking pair of used shocks in my shed that I will donate to this project. Wheels on and...

Re: 5 year project done.

I love it when somebody comes up with something that's out of the normal cookie-cutter scheme...not going to find something like that on every street corner. B.Z!

Re: OIF Triumph semi-restoration

Well, I must confess that I did use rattle cans on this job, but years ago I discovered that after applying the colour coat (I lost count, but it's at least five coats of black on this job) laying a...

Re: OIF Triumph semi-restoration

Got a few more things done in the past week or so...the frame had been sand blasted, but the previous owner had the wisdom to keep the oil tank and connections well sealed. I gave it several good...

Re: Almost !! 66 BSA 500 Single project

I've never owned one, but I've worked on them often. Learning how to start them and getting a feel for the proper use of the compression release can turn them into a one-kick wonder (once they are...

Re: OIF Triumph semi-restoration

Sorry to disappoint Ratso...this one's a '72. I got started on the work a couple of weeks ago...not in too much of a rush to finish this job, but would like to have it ready when the warmer weather...

OIF Triumph semi-restoration

Ok...I suppose I will put this job on the JJ too. Gives me an added bit of drive to get the work done, and besides that, I like sharing. This is another case where I rebuilt an engine for a friend...

Re: Bastard Speed Twin build

I used to use photobucket...then they got greedy. Now I just use the "go advanced" button and upload photos that way.

Re: build thread number one - WM20

Worked on a couple of those about ten years ago. They aren't over-powered, but sure are fun to putt around on. At least it looks like you're starting with a whole bike instead of a truckload of...

Re: Norton Atlas crank bearing

I've often wondered the same thing...I don't know for sure, but I think it's a fancy name Norton came up with for the bearings that saved a bottom end that was stressed beyond the capibilities of...

Re: Norton Atlas crank bearing

As long as the numbers and ratings on the bearings are the same and you intend to ride the machine sensibly, you'll be fine. On the other hand, if you want to go a little overboard (like I did), the...

Re: When you ride british, you'll never walk alone

I'll go with option #2 ...must have been raced, I can't see anybody eliminating the kick start for any other resaon....maybe a little of #3 and 4 as well. It's a Triumph gearbox.
