A Little Progress

I got a bit done on my Triumph over Christmas but due to a lot of things , I haven`t been able to drag it outside and get a decent look .

The oil and petrol tanks are mounted solidly now , also the rear mudguard (sorry Richie - fe. .der)is mounted , had some help with this from Ritch at Charkys Chopshop.
You can`t see it , but under the tank , the frame is strengthened and braced and a bolt in toptube was made . Oh yeah , the seat is mounted and I trimmed the gearbox cover too.

Looking at the bike outside , I decided the light on the `fendguard` was just clutter and the sidemount I`d made stuck out too much . So , I quickly knocked up the smaller sidemount and also a bracket for one of the cocktail shakers.

The pics above are kind of in reverse order . I still think it needs a skinnier rear wheel but I have a few things in the pipeline on that front.


  1. I dig all the sidewall on the rear tire.
    From here it looks like an old Carlisle.
    What is it?

  2. The tire/tyre is an Avon SM Mk.2 . I have a kind of love/hate relationship with it . I don`t know if Carlisles have ever been available over here.
    Fancy a Dorito ?
