Hello gentlemen.

This is the bike Billdozer called, "The greatest Triumph ever assembled my man's hands." That, or he nicknamed it 'The Dickskinner' because he didn't like my smartass name of 'Super Secret Wizard Racer from Castle Dracula'.

This bike has been bored too tight from the machine shop twice. Which is super frustrating. Roached pistons, twice in a row is expensive. I spent a lot of time in the last month getting rid of the half assery.

Powdercoating stuff instead of rattle can. FINALLY fixed the timing cover leak. Nice, matching hardware everywhere and I actually used Loctite this time around.

I'm like a new man. Triumph motorbikes is serious business.

Here's how it came. Non-running off of eBay from northern CA.

Fender from Keith Moore. It was pretty rough. Needed to weld some spots up.

And THIS stuff right here, stopped a chronic leaking timing cover. Seriously... USE THIS! the loctite, not the spanner wrench...

Done for now. Seriously, I need to get back to work on the 1950 6T. Breaking the engine in super slow. I'm up to 3 days of starting and getting the heat cycles on. This bike was doing over 90mph easy with the bad rings and scored pistons. Can't wait to get it back out.

Cool, Ryan. That's real cool of you. Now you may not right on the back anymore. So you can forget that weekend getaway to La Jolla we were gonna do.

Check it out. A fellow Chop Culter, Jesse. Gave me 2 of these for free sauce.

Thanks man! I really appreciate it! The first $20,000 can own it!! This exact bike was owned by Evel Knievel, The Fonz, Al Capone, and Abraham Lincoln.

I have a "live to ride" mirror that would look perfect on that bike!

You need my shipping address? I'm willing to pay big money for that.

You know I can't stay mad at you. And I especially can't cancel out Palm Springs trip over our little disagreement on how Pre Unit bikes > Unit construction.

[QUOTE=CRFyou;322704]You need my shipping address? I'm willing to pay big money for that.

I guess the question would be.. could you handle the sheer awesomeness that is this mirror?
For you see this is quite a magical mirror , as you look back into it you will see that all the women that you pass will be bare-breasted and beautiful, bending down to pick the wild flowers that sprout as you pass , to put them in their hair. You catch your reflection and it is a brown-haired Fabio, tresses flailing about in the wind ...or wait was it Charlie Manson...
However if you ARE serious , you are welcome to it my friend.
It came in one of the many boxes of shit I got with my Ironhead.
YOU may feel the need to do the British biker boy ball rub on it to exorcise all the quad-cam gayness off of it. I'll dig through my pile tonight.
PM me your addy or to tell me to fuck-off and I'll send it out to you if I can find it.
You can mail me back a Chopcult sticker as payment .
Nice bike by the way.

Just because of the way this is shaking out, I'll trade you a badass packet of Chop Cult and Biltwell stickers for the mirror. It's a fair and easy trade for me. PM me your address.

Don't worry about my thread. It's all good in my threads.

Mike only removes dents.

Chicago Chris did the paint for this bike.

He also did my '69
