    G'day, I'm up in Vermont. Am in the planning stages (aka - broke and drooling) for my first bike build. Not intimidated (well, maybe a little) but I figure I can find help with fabrication and welding. It's the knowledge and experience I definitely lack. SO... I'm in sponge mode - reading through stuff here and elsewhere to soak up what I can as I plan.

    If anyone is from the Central Vermont area, feel free to connect.

    Cheers!

    Hey everybody, i joined a while back just never posted. Recently bought a panhead with BDL primary but was wondering how much slack should my foot clutch have in it. Adjusting bolt for clutch seems to be sticking out about 3/4" past jam nut. Is it time for a new clutch?

    Hello, I'm new to Triumphs. I currently own a 2008 America custom bagger and a 69 t120r chopper. I need help with the 69'. It's not running, but I think it's all there. Not sure what I want to do with it. I need expert advice. I'll post pictures when I can. Thanks for having me! Also, any guys or gals from central Ohio area that I could get with to hang out with and learn how to wrench on these things?? thanks.... Jason

    New member from MO. Been lurking on here for awhile and learning a lot. In the front is a chopper I bought from a Shovelhead Forum member a few years ago. Had been wanting to build one but bought this one for a lot less than I could build. In the back is my 1975 FLH. Stock motor, never been opened up according to the man I bought it from. Had it for about 7 years now. Still wanting to build a chopper. Most likely will do a early 2000's sportster hardtail conversion.

    Hey. Been reading/lurking for a while and signed up a little bit ago, so I guess I should do this. I'm Matt, living in San Francisco. Recently picked up an 02 sporty chopper and am planning on some projects/upgrades. Just looking for insight and to soak up some knowledge along the way.

    Greetings. Al here in sunny SWFL. Up in NY they called me “Chinese Al”. Been fucking with these things since the 80’s. Have a knuckle, few shovels, an ironhead, and couple of TC’s. Moved to Florida 3 years ago. Not much of a chopper scene in Ft Myers so now I’m on the forums to get my “fix”. Worked as A&P mechanic for the airlines from 87-01 then Harleys till now. Hopefully I can contribute to the site with the little bit I know. Click image for larger version.

    Jumped right into a technical thread without introducing myself here, let me correct that.

    I'm Duncan, live near Chicago, picked up a 67 Triumph chopper time capsule 3 years ago and have been having a blast getting it reliable enough to ride frequently. You know the drill with any newly-acquired British vehicle: you start out never driving it farther away than you can push it home, then slowly build up your confidence in it.

    Attached are pictures of it today, but here is a link to some pictures I took right after I got it - the only thing I had done at that point was change out the dry-rotted rear tire for a Coker repro of the same tire.

    http://backglass.org/duncan/67_triumph_chopper/before/

    The Gary Littlejohn coffin tank was certainly of the era, but it was a shallow tunnel mid-location petcock version instead of the deep tunnel rear-petcock version that a Triumph needs. I had less than a gallon of usable gas in that configuration! So I sold it and reverted to a stock (repro) tank that I got painted with 1970s pinball art. The slash-cutoff pipes were also very of the era, but laws in Illinois being what they are, and having nieghbors who I didn't want to hate me, I went with stock-ish repros. I added (slightly later era) Triumph instruments, better headlights, better mirrors, and an actual battery just to make it more usable but still keeping true to the spirit of a late-60s/early-70s chop.

    Been on here on and off for many years had a 75 sporty about 6 years ago sold it. Bought this few months back in June 2020.
    Start of what been on going look for the "right" bike was looking for a 1973 XLCH Kick only found it bought it...Long story short bike has 7700 miles on it. Guy I got from is and was the only owner other than me. He painted back on early 90's. It's has upgraded cams but guy cant remember what cams they are he thinks there a COMP Cams grind. I am in the process of adding "My" special touch to the bike. I love brass I started buying parts before I even got the bike. I have a Lowbrows KR hard tail for it, very swweet hard tail for the money...I wanted a rigid frame but money is tight. I also have a Prostreet Camaro(pic inserted) that i got on a super deal. So having 2 projects is a mess.... Im looking to do a springer during the winter if money is there. But springer is 450.00, front wheel 200.00, brakes 150 ish, etc etc. I do have alot stuff for the bike now
    The S&S E Carb all brass'ed out
