Jason McCreedy picked up this 67 Triumph on the cheap a few years back. He brought it to the guys at Court House Custom to get it running since it had sat for a few years. It was already hard-tailed and was pretty much set up like it is now. After riding it for a year or so, he brought the bike back in to get the full CHC makeover. The first thing to go was the flat trailer fender which was replaced with a Led Sled Mohawk fender. A Joe Hunt magneto was acquired off of Chop Cult to replace the Boyer ignition module. The custom fender strut and custom handlebars were made and sent out for chrome plating. J-Rod at Hard Luck designs covered and tooled the custom seat pan that rides on a dual CHC air bag kit.
After all of the fab work was done the bike was disassembled, the frame and tons of other parts recieved the gloss black powder coat treatment. CHC does all of their powder coating in house. The tank and fender were painted pearl orange with ghost flames on the tank. The engine side covers where set to be the real stand out pieces on the bike. The primary cover, kicker cover, cam cover and magneto were engraved with old school tattoo style engraving which was all done at the Court House Custom world head quarters by Strit. The artwork on the pieces range from flames and spider webs to Rat Fink and Sailor Jerry tattoo style pieces. Every part of the polished Triumph covers were 100% engraved. Even the underside of the primary cover has pieces on it that can't be seen without putting a mirror under the bike or lying down to look up under it. You could easily spend a half hour looking at all the artwork on the motor; it definitely sucks you in closer once you get the first glimpse of it.
