Dude- that luggage rack is brilliant. Seriously. Absolutely brilliant. Simple, functional, and easy.

thanks mr hdwgfx.. :)

Been awhile since i posted in my build thread.

The reason is that i have started a apprenticeship at a tattoo shop.
im so fucking excited!! so its long hours and hard work..

this morning it was -4 celsius.. and that meens that i have started to think about this winter mods..(i hate to say it..but its soon getting to cold to ride her)


#1 --> Mid controls.....
Hate the ones that are on the bike! they look to "heavy" p.o.s alu junk!
i have bought some stuff this summer at swap meets that i will rework so it will "fit".... (post some pics later)


#2 --> Taking alittle shine of the bike.....(matting the chrome)
whats your thoughts on that? sanding with red/green shotchbrite pads?



#3 --> Loose the 3.5 gal tanks and go the single tank route.
sportster tank or the one i started on earlier. just have to weld it!


#4 --> ceramic coating my home made 2 into 1 exhaust.. alu perhapes. :)

666:th post...


cheers guys..

jesus: thanks man.. its awesome to be able to work again.
its been 2 year and 4 month since i earned my livin.. (sick girlfriend and a newborn)

oh yeah the triumph, that build has started to annoy me abit. dont really know why, i think its because i want another (read vintage bmw) bike that i can build a cafe off..

the laws here in Norway have made it nearly imposible to do a proper garage build. UNTIL next year, thay have made som changes now. so i think i have to finnish the triumph before getting my hands on a new build.... we´ll se

winter, what a unnecessary season! fuck

Pff.
I run Super Bs; you won't get any sympathy from me!
Hehe... im sure your bike would run with a super E too ;) or a CV..lol

I like where this is going Knallert.
thanks you..

Hmmm.................i liked your bike a lot before..........i still like it a lot.I would'nt change a thing,with either tank,if it were mine,with maybe the exception of a solid rear wheel.
the wheels are a big question mark for me.. they sure look different! in a bad and good way.. alot of people dont like them.. hehe
sure would love to have a set of spoked ones to.. 16" and 21"

This is why I wasnt alowed to have permanent markers when i was a kid...



lol

Wow Im digging how this bike has evolved. Dont rush it mate. The wheels will happen when they do and really it doesnt matter what others think. Have you thought about an early fat boy rim for the back or even better an OEM Centreline from the last of the FXWG Disc Glides (?)?

like that tank inbare-metal with the bite!

would do that - off course in "real" paint to keep that cool look

those wheels look like some "hello Kitty" (or whatsoever pink stuff) crap on a cool rig

as soon as spokes show up don't hesitate and swap 'em
