The Daily: Ryan's Triumph



Owner name, location:
Ryan (Gepetto), Orange, Ca.

Bike name:
The Fucking Orange Bike


Engine, year and make, model, modifications:
Polished 63 Triumph T100SS with type C cams, 9.5:1 pistons, Boyer ign, Boyer battery eliminator


1968 Triumph T100


O.I.F. Triumph, smoothed and chromed the trees, my special top secret kill button.

Chassis mods:
Put the lower tube back in the frame that someone cut out, shaved off everything that was not needed, molded the hardtail (it is kind of long but it was on the frame when I got it and I'm really fucking cheap!!!) machined seat spring pins and peg mounts and coil mounts, rear fender mounts, headlight mount, Biltwell seat hinge thingy, welded in bungs for the tank mount.


Tire/wheel size and style:
Front is some old dirt bike hub that I polished laced to a 21, rear is a stock 18" Triumph both have universal trials tires(scary shit on the rain grooves).


Favorite thing about this bike:
It hauls ass around town, light weight(to make up for my fat ass), jumps off of whatever it can, and it is fucking ORANGE!!!


Next modification will be:
I'm going to rechrome the entire rear wheel$$$, put another fender on that wont break off!!!!

Other mods, accessories, cool parts, etc:
I got a box of old shit when my grandpa passed with a old Unity spot light in it and knew that I needed to find a good home for it, so I fabbed up the headlight mount for it and my friend who works for the county backdoored a flood bulb for it to get rid of the spotlight bulb.

Any building or riding story or info you'd like to include:
The motor came from an old flat track racer who won some championship with that motor in his bike in 64' or something, he talked and talked for hours before we struck a deal, I don't remember all the details cause I might of been a little drunk or something, he showed me pictures and a trophy but all I wanted was the engine not a history lesson!! It took me about a year after I got the frame, going to the swapmeets buying Mike Davis's and everyone else's old shit to put the bike together.

Thanks to:
I would like to thank Jimmy White at Circle city hot rods(letting me make a mess at his shop and using his tig)
Sweet pickles for the seat(it use to be silver metalflake, blah)
Gwan from American Brightworks for chrome and polishing hook up
Mark at Mark Oyler's paint and body for painting my little turd of a bike
my wife Sara for letting me have stupid hobbies(hot rods and bikes)
Al Gore and his interweb machine(late night porn for free)
Last but certainly not least Tony and Andy Dunn at Classic Cycles for helping me out with all the parts I was missing and guidence and not minding too much when I would work on my bike and for hiring me after hanging around and asking soo many questions!!!!


Yes, that is dog poop.

Napoleon: What kind of bike do you have?
Pedro: It's a sledgehammer.
Napoleon: Dang! You got shocks, pegs... lucky! You ever take it off any sweet jumps?
[Cut to Pedro jumping]
Napoleon: You got like three feet of air that time.

Diggin' the scoot, but the sweet jumps are gold.
