Default Kustom 1959 pre unit by Angry Monkey Motorcycles

Yep, here is another “drama-free” supercrouton build thread , on a 1959 T120, that is destined for a client in Australia. As such, it had to have a front mud guard, chain guard, Aussie-size license plate bracket, and a front brake. This bike is typical of the sort I build; short front, +6 rear, vertical oil tank, and a CF gas tank. Most members here will recognize the familiar stance, and as such, this thread will be more focused on the fabrication details. Enjoy!
Here is what I had to start with, this time around.



After the build was spoke for, I rounded up a suitable frame


Then chopped/smoothed it to an appropriate level


The rear section is from The Factory Metal Works. Lucas made this up custom for me, he has been super to deal with, and the section went together perfect!

Another epic build in the making, at least that's what I expect from you.
Good luck with it!

Thanks, sandergecko, Dan Boy, selectedgrub, buk, and La Dolce! Actually, I am about to be done with this bike, and thought I would try waiting to start this, so I could post a more condensed photo-documentation without all the waiting around. We'll see how that goes, right? Anyhow, back to the pics...

Next was to tig up a 10-gauge Aussie-sized license plate/ tail light bracket with a pair of brass Tit-mouse units.


Joe, at Chopped Triumphs, supplied the custom front motor mounts. He is a super guy to deal with, and he has a ton of innovative products for triumphs in the works.


Next was the chain tensioner. This item was due for a bit of updating, so I put a “lightened” gusset across the top.

I love the zebra skin, I think that should be the seat cover!

Cheers Dan.

Thanks for kind words guys!

The seat pan was up next. This is a 10 gauge unit with a few speed holes in the brackets. No one will probably ever notice when it’s all together.


This build also has a British-made 16” drop-center rear rim that I laced to a Triumph “spool” rear hub.


After;


Here is a close-up of the npt bungs I welded in the vertical oil tank.




Here is the front wheel/hub/brake. It is a 21” that Buchanan’s made spokes for, then laced and trued.

This is the fit-up and welding of the bars to the top clamp;
