    Hey Guys, I haven't been here for a while since I have been tinkering with my Jap-bobber and chopper plus all kinds of other projects I side track into. So what is re recommended way of posting pictures nowadays?? THE BUILD: My wonderful wife surprised the hell out of me this past X-mas and...

    Friends, I have been gone a few years battling a brain tumor and seizures. However, I am back and with a new build! This Pre Unit Triumph was based off of one of only two Triumphs painted by David Mann. I have decided to donate it to a local non profit that helps teens who have aged out...

    How tight should do you suppose the fork pinch bolts on my T120 need to be. I'm using the fork puller tool to get the tube up a good distance with the expectation that the cap nut will finish off the rest, but no matter how much I tighten the bolts, the tube slides right back out. Also, have...

    David from Austin Tx. I have a few bikes (2003 Harley Heritage Softail, 1971 Triumph Daytona Chopper, 1981 CB750). I'm currently focusing on the 71 Triumph. Doing rewiring, wishing to change it from positive earth to negative earth...looking for info. This bike is very interesting. It has...

    Hoping someone could shed some light on the internals for this hub. https://ibb.co/Bcy8Lf5 https://ibb.co/RTT94sG I'm going to lace it into a 16" Harley rim but need to order internals for it as it only has the bearings and sleeve. I gather it's a unit bolt up hub and it needs 3/4" x 20tpi...

    Hi all, I'm slowly piecing together a 1955 Triumph T110 engine. Just wondering if anyone has detailed info on the pressure relief valve springs E2788 and the short one E2789. I want to check what the lengths should be? I can find data on the later unit engine without the tell tale, but not the...

    I started my Triumph bobber project about 3 years ago. An engagement ring, a wedding, a honeymoon, and many other silly distractions later, I am ready to get back to my build. Some of the parts have surface rust now but I can clean them. More than anything I look forward to learning more about...

    Include info about your bike(s), your scene, your job, your projects, etc. I recently sold a 1973 Triumph I refurbished. When I was done it was red and 9ft long. I currently have a 2005 Yamaha Road Star 1700 that was in HORRENDOUS shape due to the previous owner, but I'm fixing that crap. I...

    and by how much? I'm at the pointy end with this bike...do I sell it? or keep it?, Do I rake it? I'm liking it stock at the moment, maybe with ape hangers? It has a TMWF rear end that is stretched 4 and dropped 2.5...very nice stance and super low while the motor is a Speedtwin with a 4 fin...

    G'day, I am still in the process of planning my next build and need some of your generous help. I still have the 52 Speedtwin bottom end and HAD planned to put a T100 Fine Fin barrel and head on it, yes it will fit BUT I have been offered a 5t barrel shaved to take the included 4 fin Thunderbird...

    So your old OR new monoblock is spilling gas when tickled, or generally flooding? When you tap the bowl it stops, but you've inspected the needle, seat, and float and see no visible problem? Here is the likely culprit..... This was on a brand new monoblock, but the same issue can happen on...

    Wait?! What!? A long bike from Angry Monkey Motorcycles? Say it isn't so! Yep, it is for real, and it is also a "unit" bike to boot. This client build has been started for over a year but because of frame delays, outside of my realm of control, it is only now starting in earnest. The plan is...

    As promised, here is some tech on how to time your Lucas K2f and K2FC magneto. Timing a Lucas K2F magneto does not have to be a complicated, all-day ordeal. There are many ways to go about it, but this is an easy/quick way to get your K2F dialed in. For clarity and easy of photographing, the...

    I have admired these Crafty-B caps for a long time, put off a bit by the price but also by the fact they don't come with any install info. So when one of my clients wanted one on his bike, I figured there as no time like the present to figure out to install one. There are probably a hundred ways...

    Hi all, Any one help Ive spent 20 hours on this problem and still Im no better off. Basically under acceleration the kickstart on my 69 Triumph T100 moves backwards aggressively. Ive stripped the primary and gearbox and couldn't see much wrong tho I'm no expert. Ive replaced the Pawl, Pawl...
