the frame has been done in a 2 pack gun metal grey, which was a yamaha paint-

the spaghetti western is still in full flight , with more and more components to find homes for - and work out how they function.

we also started to mock up the two fuel pumps , and all the associated pipe work.

the fuel and nitrous lines have been cinched up , and we are finally starting to see where all the parts will live-

we still have to get paint on a few parts , but as soon as this is done we can get it built up and start to fit parts fully in place.


we hope to be on a dyno in the next two weeks-

here,s the frontal , which i dont think we covered-been helping team page with some basic alighnment issues they had on there 1969 triumph-after around eight hours measuring and machineing i think they are back on track-
dave and the paint/body guys have re-worked this front mudgaurd so the rear section is way longer to cut down on spray-dave is donating body parts to fill the hole....

Kelly, the Triumph has a strong fork and front end.  The swingarm and back end are beefy too.  The frame betwixt the two is relatively flexible.  Sometimes this can make for interesting handling.  The frame flexes a lot more than it would with the more supple and weaker original equipment front and rear.  The cure is a stronger frame.  This might not be a problem.  If it is, this would be something to consider.

Those bikes look good.

That is a lot of power for an NA engine of that size.  Be careful.
