Really diggin' the Jack Pine Triumph (Nice Cycle World video of it here for those that haven't seen it http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&fe...&v=unaRkye1OBk) as well as earwigs "desert sled".

Just still working out exactly which direction I want to go so does anyone have a link to a build thread or any info on the bike pictured above?

Working on a Triumph 750 in a '72 650 frame. Looking for a scrambler/desert sled look- stripped down, functional. Really like Earwigs creation and the McQueen ISDE bike. Anyone seen the two into one system he has on his bike?

The goal is a bike that's reliable and can run single track and gravel roads. My Uly can't do single track well and My buddy's KTM 950 gets smaller in the distance. Not a pure dirt bike but just like the old days- strip the lights off and moto it ( gently, I'm old). checking to see iuf there's a class for BIG bikes at Unadilla's Vintage race

That bike was inspiration for my Trumpet - 1968 TR6R 650 motor in a early 70's Bonnie frame....

Eldo, Chobro, Chander, and Pig, such great inspiration!
I hope to have some good pictures to share soon. I'm working on the
triumph and my Beemer bobber is close as well.
Here's another not mine but lots of things I was thinking to add.

Pigford, I see some nice bits on your bike. What tires did you use? can you post a side view?

Probably a one-off custom job I'd say
Looks really nice, food for thought
Cheers
