Amazing job. You should be proud of the work you did and appreciate that you learned so much in the process.

If there are haters, let them hate. Maybe they hate because they ride bikes not nearly as cool as yours. =)

That is one beautiful bike man. I love Triumph tanks. They have all the right curves and trim. All the little things you did make it even better. Just AWESOME!

Very nice looking trump. I really like the way you tucked the mag out of harms way too!

That thing is custom beauty. I like 90% of it and am quite a bit jealous. How short is your front end? I love the stance and everything in between!

So the next question is how much are the kits and when are they going to be available.

It is very short, stock 35mm sporty legs lowered to the max, this bike is light so still very rideable. It will not bottom out.
The short gaiters are an optical trick also making it look much lower.

It's still very much in the prototype stage now, Some mag is coming to take pictures in a while so I'll leave it until then, after that I'll try to break it on the road. I think it needs a tensioner, the belt does not slip under load but it feels like it wants to be a little bit tighter.

And I won't be putting out kits, never..... make your own.

Thanks for all the nice remarks!

That magneto setup is TOO cool! I love the riveted cover, it has an "aircraft" feel to it. Great work. The bike is awesome too, but you already know that, right? So, which magazine should we be looking for your bike to show up in?
Cheers, Dan.

No substantial miles with the new magneto yet, is has to wait till after that photo shoot. I can't risk it breaking down before that and I am not trailering it there. No way.
There's not a speck of dust on the bike now, it is polished to absolute perfection!
After that I won't mind mud, dents, rust, leaks, scratches or breakdowns.

I'll keep udating this thread and let y'all know how it holds up.
