I like it, but is that a bolt on hard tail that has been welded on ? What happened to your exhaust wrap ? I also don't think that seat is "classified" as a K&Q, (at least not in my mind) all that aside, I'm digin it.

im not srue about the hardtail, the guy i bought it from but it on there in the late 70s im guessing its a bolt on that someone stick welded on, cause the welds are pretty nasty,( im planning on cutting it off and starting from scratch in acouple years. and it might not be exactly a k&q seat but its close and i didnt know how else to describe it. and for the wrap, i didnt want to do the entire pipe but i like the look of it so i just did that front section which i dont think it looks all that bad. and the gap in the wrap is from wrapping around the bracket tab on the pipe. Your getting all technical on me,

Looks like a lot of fun. Have you had it out yet? Are you going to run those carbs open like that, or add a screen or cones?

Very cool.

yeah that gap in the wrap was what I was seeing, and it was throwing my eye off. I don't think I have ever seen a bracket there on Triumph pipes before. It appears your missing the heat sink exhaust clamps, up top, I'm guessing that's why there is a bracket there. I'm not really trying to "get all technical" on you, you asked what I thought. I know you don't know me, or what I'm like, but I'm usually pretty laid back, though sarcastic. (I enjoy razzing folks sometimes, it's really meant in good fun) If you ask what I think, I don't sugar coat shit, I tell you how I feel, my (brutally) honest opinion, don't take that the wrong way, I'm not knockin your shit at all, mine is just about as rough, (3 yrs & still not on the road) With that said, I still think its a bitchin little scoot , that you'll have alota fuckin fun on !

i took it out yesterday and it went well , i have stacks and cone filters, the cones are on it now and they look good so i will prolly stick with them. i still have a little adjusting to do but all in all im happy with it. and i think it looks cool. i havnt seen any other triumphs that look like this in my area. its not a masterpiece but it will do for now.

so i took the bike out for a little ride today and it was spitting alot of oil out of the breather and i think oil was spitting out of the 4 main head bolts and possibly the spark plug hole. by the end of the ride the head was very hot and it was smoking cause the thin layer of oil from oil coming out of the plug holes and or 4 bolts. i have clear hose going from the oil tank to the rocker boxes and the oil was getting pushed threw like it should. could this just be from having to much oil in the oil tank. i tightened the spark plugs up abit but havnt taked it out again to see if i can tell a difference.

Howe'd you get those skinny ass handle bars to stay in those risers.. They look like Harley Risers , If so they're for a set of 1"inch bars.. I could be wrong.. Looks good though..

handle bar shims, they work great.
