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.
