So I was out riding the Hinkley Monday, and some dude made a left in front of me, and I T-boned him.
I believe in angels now, since I walked away, a bit beat up, but basically fine.
Now the insurance money should pay for a new front end, so I am thinking, might as well make it a springer. If anyone knows of a complete frond end laying around, let me know. Preferably one of those newfangled HD set ups with a hydraulic shock as a dampener, disk brakes, and a spoke wheel... but I am open to other possibilities. The neck tube is almost 9" on the Triumph, so we will have some fab to do.
While we're at it, I've had a bonny tank on the shelf for a while which will get put on after a bit of modification, plus it may be time for that king and queen seat I have been dragging my feet on, and of course new bars, and cleaner controls, and so on...
Watch out for idiot drivers, and keep me in mind if you see a springer that could work well for this project.
