The rectifier may have some capacitor built in, but it would have to be a tiny one. Since this bike is a magneto equipped bike I could probably skip the capacitors altogether, but I like to reduce the flickering lights at idle as much as possible.

Thanks. Limited time and space.... I know that feel. Most all this stuff goes down in one bay of my three car garage, on one or maybe two days a week off my day job. BTW, this thread is not posted in real time, I am already four months in on this build, and just now getting around to posting a thread. And this build is in addition to hand building our parts to-order for other people. Yeah, it's exhausting some times Sleep, I need more of it.
Cheers, Dan.

Next is a place to hang the brake pedal and brake switch. This setup is not quite as complex as the last bike, but I'm also not using rear sets this time either. 3/16" plate with bungs welded in...


modified brake pedal from this.


to this... Maybe it's just me, but I just can't stomach those spring-thing brake switches.


And the rear brake setup is done. More details to follow...

Dan, this thread is too cool. Your fab work is, as usual, outstanding. I am totally loving the front end, look like a real nice piece.

Cheers Dan.

I like how you moved the rear brake actuating arm down but how did you anchor the backing plate?

Thanks Dan! Yeah, that front end is really nice, costly though. Ouch!

Ha! Sharp eye VonWegener! I was wondering who would be the first to notice that. The brake stay is factory-rigid style, locked onto the inboard of the axle plate. I made up a few extra sets of these blocks, if anyone digs it.


This setup has a cleaner flow than the old strut type brake stay. The frame tab will come off when I break it down soon.

That's an awesome set up for the rear brake. Wish I had done that to mine before I had the rear brake plate chromed.
Nice work.

Sure gonna try, the local Triumph Guru (James) here in Sav. has also invited me to go....he has had a place there for years...
...If I dont do you want me to send that frame with him?
..Also....you mentioned making this motor with out the generator, I have seen "adapters" for the rotor/stator.... they look with a belt conversion and the adapter a "spacer" / shim would be needed for the primary cover...

Is that chain guard the finished angle?

it looks as though it carries the lines (parallel) from the rear frame tube. I asked myself the same question.... but I believe if the rear mount was dropped the visual lines may not be visually appealing due to its visual structure. or maybe not long enough...

Short answer: yes. Long answer: There are two things at play here. One, the chain is pretty long and thus moves around quite a bit. Two, the BNR belt drive does away with the Cush-drive clutch center. Both those factors tend to make the chain a bit more jumpy than stock. I have had a more snug fitting guard in the past and the chain tends to occasionally rap on the underside of the guard. The sound it makes is not unlike catastrophic detonation. Unnerving to say the least. Experience has taught me that this is one area that it is best to let function trump form. And, well, it gives a bit more piece of mind if the chain lets go, and fills an otherwise empty space.

Yea i know what your saying i have same skate wheel setup have at least 1 inch of movement on top run of chain(I'm also running BNR drive)
A question on skate wheel i have abec 15 bearings they went very rough after 1000miles
i cleaned and lubed with 90 gear oil now testing again.
skate shop told me highest rating was 9 for inline skates.
What are you running for bearings and is there a lot of tension on your wheel to chain(i have a wild oscillation at a certain speed (27" between clutch centre to wheel centre)
many thanks
