Mostly pix's… Progress so far.
I was hoping one picture was worth a thousand words, but maybe not…Wow man of few words, a couple pics and a kick ass bike. Please more details if you could be so kind. Lots of killer detail. Looks like a few more interesting bikes in the shed too..
Your right on both Pete, as for what's mounted, it's a Webco type Triumph oil cooler I converted. I doubt it by it's self would have much effect, but the lines feeding it and the remote oil filter and oil tank are SS and the combination of all the eliminates will have the desired effect. Besides it looks kool and that's what it's all about.Ok I'll start.
Spartan frame and girder?
Whats the small machined part in front of the eng mount near the down tube?
No worries, here's a link to primary side of things; http://www.jockeyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=109177Thanks for the response mate. Please keep updating us with pics. Gorgeous bike.
I really dig the ol'molded gooseneck bikes of the past and the classic bobber we see replicated endlessly. So design wise that is the source of my influence. The engineering side is that the bike has to be more than capable of coast to coast excursions and easy to maintain along the way, argo the oil cooling, air ride seat and 6spd tranny. There is still so much to do, but currently working on the forward controls and I will update as soon as I have something picture worthy.I open the thread ready with a question, then I stare at it and forget what I was gonna ask.
Mostly I am curious about the whole bike. So much detail, so familiar and different at the same time. It's fantastic.
