This is my friend, Matt's bike

The bike was all sorts of cobbled when he got it
but it ran like a top, the guy drove it all around with all sorts of things wrong with it

basically the only thing he's using is the motor, and the front frame loop and fork lowers.

he spent alot of the winter rebuilding the motor, it's clean as a whistle and damn sexy

this is how it looked during mock up

Tomorrow all of the parts will be coming from paint, Gloss black everything, and the bike can literally be all assembled, we have all these parts waiting to go on... the only thing we have to wait for is the rear wheel to be laced up, we have a coker style rear tire that he's running.

Nice bike .
I think with the rising costs of pre 71 triumphs the OIF 71 and later models are going to be more popular platforms for future builds
