    Ended up redoing the tank, it was too thin and shitty to weld. Got some thicker gauge sheet and made a new one, just welded it to the existing bottomClick image for larger version.

    Yeah, the cops here have been trying to enforce social distancing. Oddly, people have deserted the roads and streets big time in the last few days.

    Yea, its excellent riding conditions here now! Almost no traffic compared to a "normal" easter week. Gonna get some longer rides in for sure while this lasts.

    Nice looking tank! Steel is cheap, welding is fun, and you get what you want.

    Yea, banging steel has given my soul nourishment since i was able to walk and use tools really. Started getting paid as welder fabricator by dad when i was 11, repairing a big old grain mill, silos, elevators, that kind off stuff. Thats why banging out art and shit makes it even more fun! No digging out tons of rotten wheat and barley, cutting and replacing rotten elevator parts 😅 the smell of welding something infused with well fermented rot juice will never leave me.. still, i wish i was better than i am given the amount of practice and formal education i had over the years. I blame it on the boogie.

    It's just not the same as the good old days of the first millennium.

    Got the right carb fixed, pissed out the tickler hole, turns out float gasket was worn through by the float pin causing the float to flop around and not seal properly. Well it ran so good after that it decided to blow the cylinder base gasket, turns out two cylinder base bolts have stripped out of the case. So its time for that bottom end rebuild after 15 years! $$$!!!

    Percy Tait, triumphs test rider used to be able to split the barrels in half by the way he twisted the throttle! That why i made a bolt-down head steady, so it cant at least shoot the whole top end into orbit, haha! Fragile little things these 500's, especially after 50+ years..

    That's the thing-my memories of these engines are from 40 years ago!! Spoke to John Hobbs and checked out Olympus and the Hobbit at the drags a couple of years ago. Lots of work needed on the supercharged engines. Percy Tait was a legend...
