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... ?

Some bikes do all the talking for their owners. Big Scott's Blue Angel is just such a machine. Originally built in 1966 or '67 for stunt work in the biker flick "Wild Angels," Scott's period perfect panhead is a time machine from a bygone era when men were men and women were decorations. Ah, the good old days…

Biltwell Parking Lot Sale



The Biltwell Crew never disappoints! Whether taking a bunch of people on a ride of a lifetime or just opening the doors to their warehouse everyone in attendance feels welcomed. Case in point, last Saturday's Parking Lot Sale. Duane and I woke up super early to grab our spot and set up shop. There was about 15 other vendors on location, each one having a working relationship with Biltwell in some capacity. Rusty Butcher, Unknown Industries, San Diego Customs, Us Versus Them, Burly Brand, Hippy Killer Garage, Four Aces Cycles, Hot Dog Customs,The Speed Merchant, Old Rose Tattoo, Speed Kings Cycles, 24 Cycles, Sweatshop Industries, IV Flat Track Racing, Rippin Rooster and MotoStuka helped set the stage for the attendees that were there for the killer deals. The scratch and dent deals are what gets people on location. You could walk away with new shirts and a helmet and spend about fifty bucks. Throw in some killer Mexican food and 805 beer and call it a day. It's always nice to see friends, fellow members and expose others to the world of ChopCult. Big thanks to everyone that purchased CC patches and hats, your support is appreciated. Thanks to Bill, McGoo, and the staff at Biltwell for everything they do for the motorcycle community and for continuing to support ChopCult through 2017!


Here are a few photos from the master himself, Nick Faught.

If you follow ChopCult on social media, you are familiar with @thirtyontwo's photos of the open road, gatherings, and unity. Sean Reilly and Max Wieser are the Thirty On Two founders.

 


We have been involved in organizing and participating in motorcycle events, travels, and are always looking for ways to connect to the motorcycle community. "Thirty On Two" derives from a motorcycle trip that 33 member Sean Reilly, and co-Founder, Max Wieser, embarked on for ten days, covering the Four Corners states for a 30th birthday celebration in the fall of 2015. Since its inception in Phoenix AZ, it has since then become a motorcycle community of friends branching from the desert of Arizona to Sean's new hometown of Johnson City, TN.
