So I decided that i was gonna re-do my 69 Triumph this winter - do all the things I've wanted to do and re-do things I've fucked up over the years

This includes

1) Hydraulic clutch
2) 750 kit
3) rewire the bike correctly
4) repaint
5) Disk brake rear
6) few other things that I can't think of right now

Anyway heres a few pics

I found a twin for this headlight and I'm having Teach make me a dual light bracket for them

I am doing the same thing right now. Just about done. I think your "project" is looking great. I have used that tail light you are pointing to, but now with much success. It was just too fragile for me in the long run.... hopefully it will "hang on" better on your chop. :)

I may end up not using it - i might have another idea in mind - we'll see as time goes on - what happened exactly?

you talking about the bike on your profile?

couple of ???'s if you dont mind

1) What springer is that?
2) what rear P-pad is that?

Thanks

Rich

DNA springer... good posts on DNA's right now on the forum. Pillion pad is unknown... bates solo seat. Light basically just broke apart from hard knocks, vibration... I'm installing a custom one right now that I made up using the great tech article here on Chop Cult on casting your own tail light. I'll post it in a week or so.
