Nice trition, what are the mods on the motor?
Cheers,it's running a 750 morgo, open Haywood belt drive, Joe hunt mag, 5 speed box, T120 crank all balanced and barking like a bastard through open pipes. All the frame mods were done by a good mate of mine at www.chopsnbobbers.com Pete is talented and even managed to get our bikes in Dice mag.

That bike ownes! I'm not feeling the jap running gear love. But that doesn't matter because I bet you have an ear to ear grin when your burning ass down the highway.

Always knew the running gear wouldn't be everyone's bag, but it does piss off the flat cap wearing purists over here which puts a smile on my face almost as big as the one I get setting car alarms off.

Everytime I take a look at the book Rockers! I want to cafe my Tiger. I wouldn't go quite as modern-esque as yours, but it's your bike and it's nifty, Nifty.

Truly amazing bike. Nice blend of old vs new. I dig the stainless pipes!

AWESOME! Welcome to the board!

PLEASE tell us more about that motor and tranny also do you have any shots of the primary side?
It's great to get some positve feed back on my ride, especially from a group like this!! The motor is a 1961 Tiger 110, the whole thing stripped rebuilt and blueprinted by a bloke named Mike Haywood of PSP in Norwich UK (remember seeing his 1000cc big twin Triumph he was drag racing, try to find some shots of it...pure mental). My motor now runs a Morgo 750 top end, 10 stud head, balanced pistons and T120 crank. Total loss system with only a Joe Hunt magneto lighting it's fire and concentric amal providing the juice. It's got a slick shift box with 5 speed, same as when i bought 12 years ago, 21st birthday present to myself. Tony Haywood belt drive running open because it looks nasty. All the casings were finished by fine bead blasting leaving them matt, stonking look when the motor was new. For full spec I'd have to locate the original invoices.

Damn! That's my new wallpaper. I like the running gear, although I'd paint the wheels the same as the tank. Welcome!

Cheers James, gotta be the biggest kick out of owning or building a bike when someone seriously digs it, puts a big grin on my face especially when total strangers stop you in the street! Love it. The whole bike is oil rag finish, all the running gear is off a Suzuki RGV250 which I stripped down and sold off, what was left cost me nothing. Wheels chipped, forks look nice and scuzzy too, the best bit is the petrol tank I bought off ebay for £50, it's fibreglass and cane complete with petrol stained paint and two big surface cracks that look ace. Wanted to put black ane white checked racing tape around one side of the rear rim to break up the shit white. What I'm after though is a KC daclighter cover for the headlight, nice and smiley!! Never take anything too seriously least of all myself.
