O.T.B...... R5 & Triumph Cafe Tank

Ian R5 blew beautiful blue smoke after he put new Avon rubber, brake pads gold chain and stole my RD350 seat while he's getting the original seat recovered. Changed out a dead plug and giddy up! No mosquitos for a couple of hours!!!

Got a little more work done on the Triumph Café tank

O.T.B.....Triumph Cafe

The Freedom Machine show being a few weeks away Brittany and I figured we should come up with something new to bring.
  I started mocking up a Triumph Café today using a new Re-pop TFMW frame and a 0"-2" hardtail. I'll be using a Triumph 750 install with some of our new stainless engine plates.
 Cut the tunnel out of a beat up Triumph tank that I paid to much for and sectioning a café tank we had in stock.
 Pat Cowan of PACO Motorsports who's king of the fiberglass vintage café seats in my book kindly hooked me up with a seat.

Good for a Monday!!!

Bullit Triples to Bonneville!!!

We received a request from Jerry to run one of our S2/S3 billet triples on his Bonneville bound Kawasaki Triple! This guys the real deal with the Kawis as he's a National Record holder for his class!

Jerry has a wealth of knowledge on the triple and belongs . He's also kindly volunteered to answer any questions in redoing my S2/350 Triple.

Another cool thing about Jerry is that he still owns and rides his 750 Kawi H2 that he bought new in '72!
