wow, didnt think id get this much positive feedback, thanks for the props guys!. once its up and rolling id like to look into switching out the sprocket in the rear.

Jirard: I picked the rear tire/wheel combo off of Hatch. not even sure what model tire it is, but it looks killer. Its a tad too wide, I may have to swap it out eventually.

Galaxie: The oil tank is a custom jobby I made with some large diameter stainless, and I used the cap/dipstick, breather, feed and return lines from my stock oil bag. Its mounted with some aluminum straps I made as well.

Matty: The cases were lightly bead blasted and then rubbed with a scotchbrite. kinda has that dull polish look that doesnt stand out too much.

Garagebuiltbob: PM me the directions to your shop, id love to swing over and check things out.

Oktr6r: ive got some pictures of the frame mockup and assembly of the bike, ill post em in the morning. When I tore my motor apart, it was clean inside but I figured I still should check out the trap. Well it ended up being plugged solid on the right side. Absolutly no oil was getting to the bearing, the crank had some wear, the bearing was probobly minutes from locking up when it ran last. I had never had it running so I wasnt sure when the last time it saw fire was. it definatly made me feel alot better when I found that... now its the only way to go when I get a trump motor.

Thanks again guys, It will hit the streets this weekend. ill follow up with some burnout videos.

A good job is a good job. You'll soon find out how many people love seeing an old Triumph on the road.

I'd take it easy on the engine long enough to break it in properly.
