View Full Version : The ugly drag rat triumph T140

03-11-2012, 1:38 PM
We bought it as an unfinished project and looking really ugly (details) Next winter we gonna build a nice chopper of it with new frame. But first we need to finish the xs and an intruder. The dragracer is a quick build just for fun and take part on the 1/8 mile race on the bottrop kustom kulture show in germany.

Frame oif, hardtail by previous owner, front end of a suzuki gt.
The rest is done by us but nothing is perfect finished only the engine. The gastank is from a 60s rixe moped. It's running a pazon sure fire ignition, boyer powerbox and emgo coil. He fire's with only one kick.

He's not ready yet

Made the same baffles as we did for the xs only those are twice as long (10cm these are 5cm).Welded them in an other pipe and gave it a slash cut.... I wanted to shoot a video so you could hear how he sounds now but the camerabattery was empty. I will shoot one soon.

Oh and I did some foam from a dirtbike airfilter in the velostacks so he doesn't get a lot off dirt in
