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... ?

Full Tilt Boogie 2014 - Part 9

To wrap up the Evo Sportsters at Full Tilt, here are mine and Scott's.

Scott's bike went by "project pink eye" for a while and later "droopy eye" and it probably has lots of other names too. Is it an homage to Then Came Bronson? I have no idea and never asked him that. I've never seen the show anyway. The color is hard to describe and was a bit of an accident as I understand it. It's sort of like hot pink meets fluorescent orange, but mostly orange. Regardless, I think the bike is very cool.

I think that's dirt on the tank.  Scott might have brought part of the commune with him to the show.

As I've said before, it's a shame it rained so much but it was still a fun day and I'm glad so many people brought their bikes out.

Overall, Full Tilt was awesome again.  This was the first year without live music so I hope they bring it back next year.  Hopefully the weather is a little less wet next year too.  It's a great time no matter what so, rain or shine, don't miss it!!!

CoC FXR

Jeff Wright of Church of Choppers fame is finishing up his FXR for the Brooklyn Invitational. I have always been a fan of Jeff's work, his approach to bike design is truly unique. That being said, I think he is outdoing himself with this one. Check out the build HERE.
