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... ?

Old Chrome

I found some nice old chrome hiding under the shitty black paint on this '48 45" springer.  Not a surprise since the front leg is chromed as well, but pretty cool on a Friday night nonetheless.

My take on Crank and Stroker


I spent some time at Crank & Stroker today looking over their product line. The quality and craftsmanship is top notch. The best thing is the price point 120—140. "We could jack the cost up to 30% but we want to provide a quality product for the every day rider". Do your self a favor and visit Crank and Strokes during the So-Cal Cycle Swap Meet. Andy will be vending in spot 734. Go to www.crankandstroker.com  and check out my personal favorites, the Clean Cut Motorcycle Vest and the Billy Club Leather Vest. Thanks for the hospitality Andy! - Lisa
