Hey everyone, pretty new to the site. I think this is my first post, can't remember... Been a while since I've been on. Anyway I've got a 67 Triumph 650 motor and a frame that I found on craigslist. The bike here is what I want to turn my pile of parts into. Can anybody tell me frame dimensions, front wheel (maybe a 16 or 17?), tires, rake, tank, what kind of springer etc. Any information will help. Thanks

Thanks for the Intro.

Wheels: 18"
Tyres: Coker (or Firestones, whatever)
Rake: 40-45 deg.
Forks: Any springer will do.
Tank: Buy one from Lowbrow.
Frame: Get FMW to make you one like the pic.
Other bits: Don't forget a rear mudder.

Thanks Neo Dutch!

Thanks for the great info Neo. That seems like a lot of rake but accurate, I guess. I wasn't expecting it to be that much and handling is probably going to suck for the most part but I'm excited about this build. Hopefully I can have this thing finished in a couple of months!!

That looks like it would be a nice bike. What's great about building your own you can decrease the rake a little and probably make it handle a little better.
