Double Vision: Dual Engine Triumph Race Bike Update

I have been working on this bike non-stop the last six weeks, and it has caused me to empathize with people who have chosen the life of the recluse, leaving behind friends and family for a sole pursuit. I am not there myself, but I am looking through the keyhole and I feel as though I have come to some sort of understanding about that sort of thing though I rather wouldn't. But I digress; it has been a couple months since I updated photos of the build, which has since changed names from Milwaukee Murderer to Double Vision.

Special sprockets. This here is what joins the power of the motors by linking the crankshafts.

Oil tank in progress. Made a wood buck out of MDF and hammered annealed 5003 aluminum to make the face and dished back. Thanks to Jay Roche @ Special 79 for some tech posts on his blog which helped me out. This tank consumed at least 3 full days of my life, and I mean full days, but it is the nicest thing I have ever made.

Sometimes simple things are the best, I really like the way these fender mounts turned out.

This primary guard involved a really large MDF buck and plenty of time. I feel as though I welded miles of aluminum building this bike. Turned down a circle of MDF in my lathe, routed the edge over and hammered the dish over the clutch basket area. 1/2" strip welded to that to bring it out a bit more, and the face and sides all welded up while clamped to the wood buck to keep it in shape. Mounts to 9/16" stainless round bar that is welded to the stainless motor plates. Should be up to tech for Bonneville in August.

More aluminum, chain guard and number plates. This was a little while ago and was about the end of the major fab work. I subsequently tore the bike down to the bare frame and finish welded everything. More pics to come soon... ?

"This past month has been a wild ride. We picked up the entire company and moved it 1500 miles north to Wisconsin. Our new warehouse gives us ample room to expand and grow in the coming years. We thank everyone for their patience while we made our transition. The dust has settled and we are back to business as usual. Orders will be processed and shipped the same business day!"- Zach

All orders over $99 Ship Free in the USA


This is for all you Sportster, Dyna and stocker fans that don't want to change the tail light setup you already have but want to get rid of that crappy plastic side mount. This will relocate your license plate to a slick low pro style and mount either vertically or horizontally off the lower shock bolt.

Perfect to replace the HD plastic side mounts on Sportsters, Dynas and other models. Will fit any bike with a shock rear suspension

100% Made in the USA
