Triumph Changes

I changed and added a few things to my Triumph last week. I added a fly screen to the front and a tachometer to the dash. I put knee pads on the gas tank and changed the exhaust pipes which made it sound and perform much better.

New Gas tank

I didn't like the original gas tank so I changed it this weekend to a Indian Larry style tank. I have a fender on order and I will install that next. I also want to do something different with the seat but I haven't decided what yet.

New Project Bike

I have started a new project bike. I got it setup in rolling chassis form this weekend. Its a bobber frame with a springer front-end. I got a 74ci shovelhead motor with a S&S super E shorty carb, harley 4 speed kicker transmission and a Primo 3 inch belt drive primary.  

More Paint

I painted the air cleaner on the bobber bike and also changed the seat to a black one. I think it looks better this way. Every time I think its done I end up changing something on it so hopefully its done now. At least for now.

New Bike

I got a new bike mostly for commuting to work with.  Its a 2008 Triumph Bonneville. A really fun bike to ride.

New Paint

A very productive weekend. I installed direct tv in the workshop/garage and I painted the fender on my bike. It turned out pretty good so now I can try the gas tank.

Here are some pictures of the barn being built.

New Barn

Today our new barn is being built in our back yard. When its done I will be able to store a couple of the bikes in there and Corinne will use the rest for her horse tack.
Tomorrow I will move my tools and the rest of my workshop into our garage. I can't wait to be able to start my new bike.

On the Road

  The license came for my home built bike so I took it for its first legal ride. What a blast, I can't believe I built it and it runs.
  I have also been in the process of redoing our home garage so I can move my workshop from our warehouse to our home. I have added a  220v outlet for the tig welder and added more 110v outlets. I painted the walls and the garage floor so now I have to wait a few days to let the floor dry and I can move all my tools in.
