I was reminded of the post I did on the Delinquent recently , when I had the chance to buy some Webco braced racing bars (see pics ).
My first thought was `Cool bars `
My second thought `I can`t use those , they`re the Mike Davis bars .
Don`t think I`ve ever heard anyone say they don`t like this bike . If we`re talking influential Triumph builds from the last ten years , this one`s in there too .

I`m guessing that you frequent the same places on the internet that I do , if so , I guess you will have seen a thread on Jockey Journal , entitled `The Most Influential Bikes of the Last Ten Years `.
Speaking purely about Triumphs , I wouldn`t like to say which was THE most influential , but I think the Delinquent has to be up there as a contender
This bike was featured on Guy Boltons `Greasy Kulture ` website before there were forums or blogs about this stuff . I think you can see the Delinquents` influence in a lot of the customised Triumphs you see today .
I`m not saying it was the first or the best , these things are debatable . But influential , definitely .

This cool little tank is owned by Pete from Eat the Rich (see linkbar).
I wonder if it`s a CZ tank , like the silver one in the pic pinched from Show and Go (also in linkbar).
I`d run this just as it is , the Gene Vincent scrawl reminds me of what I did to my schooldesk with ink and a compass , circa 1982!

As someone who habitually saves pictures I like to my hard drive , I often come across stuff that I have no clue to the origins of .
All I know about these , is that the riders name is Magnus , which makes me think Scandinavia (?).
Really digging the bike though , swinging arm frame , TT pipes and nice paintwork .
Anyone know Magnus ?
