Yeah those are nice if you like Triumphs that run well and look nice. I like my stuff to never be that way! Just kidding it looks like he has some nice stuff, I just wish he would build one for me as a gift. I guess I would accept it and speak well of him, you know but only to gang more business from the Middle of America. Man those are sweet!

Thanks for the props Guys. Always good to know your stuff is appreciated. That Black/blue bike with the upsweeps is flying loose in LA right now. (cross your fingers and toes for some magazine coverage). Fun stuff, I built the pipes for that one by taking two sets of pipes and cutting up the extra set to get the same upsweep angle on both sides, then welded them together. The pipes are not so much loud as they are pointing up, right at your head, so they seem loud when standing next to the bike. On the street not much louder than the regular open piped bikes.


The black bike, the one I liked to call "Slimbo" the bike that is the expression of all my disgust for fat tired behemoths, is now in France of all places probably getting the owner in lots of trouble with the locals. The pipes are a stock TR6 desert pipe from the late fifties/early sixties, nicely repopped by Toga. I added the shaker of course which is not stock. Pipes are available with correct clamps for about $160, shaker not included. I never should have sold Maurice the Flying Dutchman my other gold flake seat. damn-it.. .

thanks again.

The tanks on the gold and black and blue bike appear to be the same can you share what they are? I am working on a 66 T100 and that is the style I am looking for.

Those tanks are "peanut tanks", not Sportster tanks, not Paughco tanks. PEANUTS. These were made by Wassell from the 1950s to the 1970s, then made in Japan. They were/are THE tank for the drag-strip, lakes, choppers, bobbers, etc for FIVE DECADES now. You cannot go wrong with a peanut. Some people call the sportster tanks peanut tanks and it is one of my pet-peaves. but enough anal retention. . .

I have an extra peanut tank right now for $75, is is NEW old Stock, has no tabs on it and is clean inside.
