Post My TR6 build starts here! - NOW FINISHED

THIS IS NOW DONE, CHECK OUT PICS ON PAGE 21

Well after sitting at the back of the garage for 10 years I am finally getting started on my build. Here's what I started with,



After a new rear wheel and a DB tail its looking more the way I want it to be. I guess I am about 1% done so lots more work to do. I will change the front end I think, just not working for me at the moment and I may go for a more pleasing looking oil tank. And its a little too high at the front.



I'll keep this thread updated as I make progress.

If you were on this side of the swimming pool he'd buy that in a second.

You bike is looking great.

Built the engine a while back, it had broken a rod and was pretty messy. Could do with a clean up, again, once Ive finished this initial build I'll strip it down again bike and engine and get to work on it all.

I'm doing it this way cos I'm not sure what I want and where I want it! So I want to get it all looking and working right before I get to painting and chroming.

Haha, thats not what I was getting at...

The original frame looked like it was forgottne about around 37 years ago, but the motor looks fresh.

I dig the new tail...I am a huge fan of longer Trumps...I am way too tall for standard.

And i used to Live in Hereford (granted you're Irish), so I know that not all you guys have such taste!!!

Cool start. Your shifter seems to have a mind of its own.

Can you post a closer pic of your trees, particularly the top one?

Thanks, keep it going.

Shifter is pointing up for a hand shift, not sure how it will work in practice but until I get further down the line I can't say.

I designed the trees a long time ago with the bar clamps when I was young and didn't really know what I was doing! I am not sure they really work, they are very wide with little offset. I'll take a couple of pics for you to see what I mean but I can't see them staying on this build.

So I have installed a different front end that I am liking more. It is now sitting a little low at the front so a larger front wheel is required. It will be easier to see how much I need to change this in daylight though!

That frontend will never work. Send it to me and I'll find something to do with it!

Here are some pictures of the trees. They are the correct way up, I designed them so that I didn't have the stem bolt showing in the top tree. Pinch bolts to the inside keeping it all clean. Funny, I thought they were great when I first got them but I am not so sure now I have had them on a bike. It was many years ago I designed these, if I did it again I would do them differently.



Now the back side showing the pinch bolts



And these are the bar clamps I also did.

Thats what I could get it the first pics, it looked like the bar clamps & top tree were one.

Theyre all cool peices.

I do like that girder on there, nice.

So what's next? Well I wanted to fabricate the engine mounting plates. I didn't happen to have a CNC cutter in my garage so I drew these up and I'll get a friend of mine to cut them on his machine. Should look good when they are done.

So I have the bike levelled and sitting straight. But here's the problem, now that the bars are mounted so low, they catch the tank real early. I could use some bar risers but I don't really like that look and its really works at the moment with the whole "low" look. I am thinking that the only other way to go is to get a much much smaller tank, or at least a much narrower one.

Thing is, I really like the low bars as they are, just got to find a way to make them work!
