Default Re: trio of trumps

Got to work on my 'new' mids this weekend, pretty much a direct copy of what i already made, just some little tweaks. Started with some nice 90deg bends that craig did up for me, and then made pieces in the lathe for the mounting bits. Triumph con rod bushing, inserted in some DOM for the pivot, and a clevis i had hangin around. Nice and tight, feel good, look good, simple.

Timing/shift side. Will be using a stock shift arm.



Primary/brake side.

Still moving forward, got the other rocker box assembled, and the new small end bushes pressed into the con. rods. Got my cylinder back, and painted it up. Also got some of my magneto stuff back from my buddy doing the machine work. He's gotta finish up the adapter shaft and its ready to go. *Hopefully* the correct main bearing shows up today and i can really get this show on the road.

I can't believe I missed this whole thread! The opening pix of the engines all spread out was a great way to break my heart. Fuck, what a nice collection of a lot of really cool shit. Six pages later, all I can say is...Great work, inspiring ideas, and I'll be checkin' in to see how it all comes together. -Murdoc.

nope, thats a 35mm Narrowglide, and some swap meet 33mm covers of unknown origin, i had to open up the tops a bit to get 'em over the tubes, but no mods to the bottoms.

some cool stuff you've got going on there. I like the raw look, it looks natural not too contrived.
