Right on man, looks good. Do you have a build thread going? It'd be nice to see what you started with.

Saw this on your blog. I see you got rid of aftermarket frame (what kind of frame was it anyway?) and went with a stock front loop. I love triumphs with harley springers.

Thanks, man. Dig the bike. Did you get Nash's old MPD primary cover? I asked him if it was for sale and he said it was already promised to someone. I saw he commented on your blog post so I put 2 and 2 together.

Is that what everyone does once they get their cycle in DicE?! I like it better now. Very tidy little Triumph.

Looks real good. Can't go wrong with a pre-unit front end. Ditched the mag?

It will every time on a unit motor, mags can't auto advance like E ign or points can. Fixed advance is great at one RPM and a compromise every where else.

You've hit the nail on the head with looks now. The best iteration so far. not sure it gets any better, looking fantastic!

Sounds good. I'll see you there. My pops and I will be riding our 1966 Triumph chops there from Grass Valley. You tooling down from Oregon? There's a couple guys (one named Tom) trailering down a bunch of Triumph parts from up there, you know them? There's a 1949 GP racer project among other tasty bits he's got and keeping.
