Default My silver FrankenTriumph done

Well nearly done. I guess it's never really done. Front fender still needs new black paint, green fuel lines have to go and some more stuff to do.











My first build and my first bike. Complete engine rebuild, made my own hardtail, deraked the frame. Did everything except spokes, cranck balancing an some bushes that I needed before I had a lathe. Made led blinkers, led taillight, did the paint everything.

There are still some things that are an eyesore to me but I trust the haters to point them out anyway.

I picked up the shitheap I started out with one year and two weeks ago. I figure there's about 1000 hours of work in there.

As you can see I got a lot of inspiration from the JJ and I also got a lot of help from the knowers when I got stuck.

I thank you all.
This bike would not be here without the JJ.

Very nice. I actually like the mufflers, er... silencers. A very nice look, all in all. Good work. Bruno

Yeah, I'm probably the third or fourth guy to say it, but that bike is clean and simple and classic!
