Default Almost ready to fire...

Here are few pics of my Triumph as of late. Just gotta wire, plumb and then put some shakedown miles on it before paint/powder. Been working on this thing as I get extra money and time for the past year. Thanks to all the guys on the board that helped whether it be answering questions or selling me parts or services. Next pics I post will be me riding it through some Hoosier backroads.

Those pipes are fuckin' cool. Nice job.

FYI, I just learned the "support the pipes in two places" lesson on my Triumph. My exhaust would vibrate like a tuning fork on the highway, loosening the spigots, clamps, etc...

Are you gonna have a compressor for the seat bag or just use an air valve? Did you make the Handle bars? Bike's killer!

No compressor. My dad scrounged up a fitting off a portable air tank. Fill her up and ride, pretty comfy actually

Thanks guys, all you Hoosiers hit me up if you are in the area. I am always down to put down some suds and tell some lies. No idea colorwise, my mind changes more than my underwear does.

It has been very cool to have met up with you in the last year or so Matt as well as,hung out together and helping you out with that great build. Bike looks really nice can't wait to see how the paint ends up. Hope you can bring it to the brits this year. Seeya JEFF
