On the Bench....Beehive Triumph

Update on the Beehive oil tank '68 Triumph. Getting everything mocked up which included shortening the springer, installing the Old Skool Kool seat, rear wheel with a Monster chain tensioner on the 6"- 2" TFMW bolt-on hardtail, Lowbrow Stingray ribbed fender with a very cool vintage glass truck cab marker light and custom fender struts.






Ducati Adventure Bars

I was approach to do a very cool project for a 2013 Ducati Hypermotard. The owner ask if I can make a set of adventure bars for the bike as Ducati hasn't developed them yet. I was up for the challenge. I also added some highway pegs and got the cool Silver Vein powdercoat done at Fireball Coatings in Erin. I also put an extension to the kickstand so I would be easier to get it deployed.











   



 
 












On the Bench...Forbes CB650

Here's the start of another build. The list of mods for this bike is going to be long! Custom trees for the inverted Ducati front end with 3.5"/4.25" spoked wheels, converted Comstar rear hub, frame loop for the Tuffside seat, modify the tank, 2  Mikuni into 4 manifold for the CB650 motor and that's for starters!
