Cool Re: Angry Monkey Motorcycles '58 Triumph Build "Old Man"

Wow, if the tanks are going to sit like that in their finished state, I say that is very cool !! AT present they look like a 1966-1970 Bonneville tank with dual caps...sweet !!

Thanks Jon! That's exactly how they are going to sit, spacing and all. I originally chopped those tanks for my next personal bike, a factory rigid, but they will get in the breeze sooner on this one.

Fantastic work Dan. I bought a lathe back in Sept. (a U.S. one) I love it and am learning quite a bit. Already have a MiG and 2 of those Dillon/Henrob/Cobra torches. My next purchase is going to be a TiG. What are you using?
Thanks, Bill

Bill,
Thanks for the kind words. It sounds like you are on your way. I have an old Miller Syncrowave 250 machine with a TIG runner liquid-cooled torch setup. It is way bigger and heavier than modern solid state machines, but these big machines are much less expensive and can still get the job done.

Crank back from re-grind. It was packed full of hate.


And so was the crank for the next build.


All clean and ready for service

Dan I have to ask mate, was the tank fillet welded from the inside with the flat bottom clamped to the bench (so it wouldnt distort) or are they good penetrations I see after welding from the outside? Curious is all, I've never cut up a tank and welded shut before. I reckon you welded the outside because there would be marks from where you got rid of paint before welding, with maybe a strip disc or something? Do the guys you give it to dip it into a bath to remove inner tank paint?
Excuse me for the Q's, I'd like to split a tank one day.

DB,
All welding was done from the outside, what you are seeing is just good penetration into the inside corners.

The inside of the tank shells were media blasted to remove all previously applied paint/sealer. All external areas to be welded were cleaned of paint with Roloc disks on a small, air, die grinder. Easy, right?

Here is a bit more progress. Chain guard cut on my 5 axis water-jet. NOT! More like drill, die grinder, files, and sweat.


fender in process of getting butchered to fit.


And, finally a full shot of bike with tanks, fender and chain guard on. The motor is one of my personal ones. This bike's motor will be a single carb with a pre unit 8-bolt head.


Next is pipes. Standard stuff here, but I've never really shown the process. So here it is. All tubing very tightly fitted, back-purged, then fused.


Tedious this. After fusing, lots of filing follows. while final hand sanding is not done yet, this is one of the seams.


The rear supports on the pipes got a little out of hand this time. I am a big fan of Ducati lattice frames, so that's kinda what I ended up with. Tidy and super strong, I think it can manage to hold up the ends


All seams filed, sanded and ready for ceramic coating.

Thanks Lester! I always enjoy seeing your work. The card wallet and key fob you make for me has gotten lots of good use. Good stuff, that.

More updates... The electrics needed a home and this is where they went.

The caps found a spot between the tanks in a scrap of 1-5/8" exhaust tubing, used as a clamp.


The rectifier filled a space between the motor and transmission, hung from a motor mount spacing tube.


With the magneto out, you can see it down there. The way the bracket is offset, the rectifier can easily be accessed and unbolted from below.


here is a shot from below with a mirror...


This has nothing to do with the bike, but my son helped me make this filler rack yesterday. Once it is sorted, I'll write the types of rod on the corresponding PVC tubing. It was some brilliant father-son time. My George is the best!

Do you have to use the capacitor? I thought those regulators had them built in?
