Cool Re: triumph tiger cub bobber

Wil,


What is the official color that you used on this bike ? I am thinking about painting one of my bikes a maroon (ish) color and yours looks like it's spot on.

Also interested in the reactions you have received riding it around so far ?

there have been a few bugs, not mine tho, my dads. i've only just started out with this being my first project. i would like to do a volks rod tho.
as for the tail light it's just an old lucas one of my dads that happened to be lying around in my garage, which was handy

according to manuel..rocker line is on return side...


just went and took a look...sitting on your bike the line closest to center ( or your left ) would be the return and feed line to the rockers...d32
