So, this is going to be a long term type thing. I don't have the money to pull this off in a few months. Bare with me on this one. I have a lot of cool ideas that are going to go into this bike.

Bike- 1968 Triumph Bonneville

Started with- Front frame loop and matching numbers engine. That's it.


I bought a Factory Metal Works hardtail and scrounged a few parts and ended up with this

the springer is scrap, got a old 21" for up front, using the ribbed fender and not sure if im using the tank.

was looking for a oil tank i liked and could't find any thing. So, i made my own. This is what I came up with.
this will be mounted to the seat post vertically.

Dude, holy fuck-knuckle. You do some nice work! Can't wait to see how this works out! Those passenger pegs seem rad, how are they going to stay horizontal? A tab on the frame or something?

Coleman
06-09-2012, 8:36 PM
Longlivepunk, the pegs will be bolted to welded in bungs on the inside of the frame. the point of them is to be able to be removed and not see any holes, mounting tabs, or marks left by the pegs. the pics dont show it too well, but the only spot they touch the frame, is where they will be attached (havn't welded the bungs on the pegs yet).

I see some really nice fab work in the future for this bike to the already wicked stuff you've done so far. Please keep us updated on the fab work you do cause that's what's sets scoots from the ordinary.



By the way... subscribed.

found some more pics of some stuff for the bike.
The parts of the bike that are going to be polished will be 100% polished. Even in the fins. I dont live in a area where the heat will be a problem. It rarely gets to the mid 90s in the SF Bay Area. Plus, its what I want. my arms and hands will prob. fall off from sanding and buffing by the end of the build. Don't worry! No trailer queen build here! I plan to ride the piss out of this bike.

I dug this front end out of my father in laws stash in his back yard (thats a whole nother thread. That man has a gold mine of cool shit!). I think its mostly Triumph, but the bottom tree looks sportsterish. maby you guys could help me out with that.

started to work on the seat pan. There won't be any springs where you can see them. That's why there's all of the bracing. There will be a pivot point, 2 1/2 in. from the front of the seat. This makes the seat have a see-saw motion. A rod will run down from the front of the seat, through a hole in the frame that places it in the center of the seat post. A spring will be locked into the base of the seat tube and the rod will pass through it with a washer of sorts mating it to the spring. So... I go down, front of seat goes up and rod goes up witch then compresses the spring... <table style="width:auto;"><tr><td><a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/DJIaC3CGeEqif2_KaHF0LgiJ0D3koCJOo4GU9IcG30Y?feat=e mbedwebsite"><img src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-i6S9Cbkou1w/T94O9HOeG9I/AAAAAAAAAHA/0Xxrps9UurI/s800/IMG_6748.jpg" height="600" width="800" /></a></td></tr><tr><td style="font-family:arial,sans-serif; font-size:11px; text-align:right">From <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/110641766754668473471/TriumphBuildPics?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCO71s7f344b81gE&feat=embedwebsite">Triumph build pics</a></td></tr></table>

Seat pan is done! still trying to figure out the spring rate and the cup that will hold the spring in the bottom of the frame. All of the pivot points are fitted with bronze bushings.

Got the seat done and the bracket welded on the frame. Still waiting for the spring (need to save up some extra spending cash.) to finish totally, but all fab work is done. made the spring cup out of a solid steel billet and turned it on the lathe.

To me, it's the little pieces that a regular person would normally pass up that really gets me stoked. It's more then just building a bike but really creating one.

Keep on keeping man and post up all the goodies as they come alive.

I will post as many pics as I can mad750. I agree. It's the little things that make a bike one of those bikes that you can't take your eyes off of. Not because there's so much crap bolted on that your senses are assaulted and it would take a week to see everything, but one where every time you look at it, there's something small and mostly hidden from view, that adds to the beauty of the machine, but doesn't over power the look of rest of the bike. And like mad750 said, I don't want to just bolt together a bike, I want to use all of my talent and force my self to learn new talents, so I can design, form and sculpt a bike into existence.

Started to work on the clamps for the oil tank. Got one clamp cut and threaded and the other drilled and started to cut it but time was cut short. This is where I'm at. They still need a bit of finish work. I can't totally finish them until I get my tires and figure out the rear fender placement. That will allow me to figure out the length of the clamp post so the oil tank will be centered in between the seat post and rear fender.

This pick is just a mock up. The mounts will be welded on to the frame by filling the holes in the mount going around the seat post. Giving it a factory frame lug look.

In the famous words of Charlie Sheen... WINNING!!!


Every time I get an update notification, I know I'm gonna open this thread up and see metal twisted, formed and beaten into a piece(s) that'll blow my mind!! Seriously though, wicked work AGAIN!! You should name this bike PRIDE for all the work you're putting into it and for the satisfaction that comes along from doing it yourself. Standing back and regardless if people notice the details or not, having PRIDE knowing that no other bike is like yours.

First off, MAD750, that's one of the nicest things anyone's said to me! Thanks so much for the kind words! I like the suggestion for the name. It fits. We'll have to see if PRIDE sticks.

Mollard, I do the destruction derby every year with a buddy of mine. He drives, and I paint the car and am crew chief in the pits. It's one of the most fun things ever. Plus, all the proceeds from the event go to charity. Eventually getting my own own shop would cover the whole, living the dream bit.

NeoDutch, That cam cover is SICK!!!!! What is it off? Yours? I'd love to see the build/finished product.

So, Its been for ever since my last update... Sorry. Life has gotten a bit hectic. Not much has happened with the build. I did however manage to start work on my frame jig. This way i can get started on raking the neck. I will have step by step shots of that process. hopefully it will look like it wasn't touched when I'm done. All factory stampings and markings will remain intact.

I was going to rake the neck on this bike just a hair. But, another CC member convinced me not to. I slapped the bike back together with the front end I've got and the 21" and 18" wheels I'm using. I will need to take a few inches out of the forks to level the bottom of the frame, but other than that, I think the stance and proportions look good. This is how she sits:3609436095
