Thanks for the drawing Ron!
When the XS has left the shop please put your Triumph on the stand!

That's so pretty I'd be afraid to ride it.

Here are some new shots. We have taken the seat pan back to the painter to do away with the carbon fiber detail on the sides of the tail section. I'll post pictures when we get that back and installed.

It's a beautifully crafted bike, but that paint is quite tacky.

No bike does everything perfectly. In fact, no bike does anything until someone gets on it to ride.

Hi Jim,
I'm one of the judges at the Quail; I'm riding my Triumph street tracker on the ride Friday; may put it in the sale corral on Saturday.

That was the only part of the bike I didn't like. Did not match the lines of the seat or the frame.
It is now perfect!
Beautiful bike and beautiful work...

What controls did you use? This is an incredible build. A perfectionist after my own heart!

I don't know a lot about what you did there, but you did it well.

Here are some photos that we took of the bike after it had 500 miles on it.

Help me Rhonda, that bike is HAWT!!

I'm building a street tracker next and I hope you aren't offended if I rob every design clue you have The modern front end is something I was chasing a couple years ago on a stalled project I just never could get my head around the spoked wheel/hub to the GSXR type forks and brakes. Originally I was going to use 70's goldwing spoked hubs as they ran twin discs, but yours is so much nicer.

One problem I have currently on all my builds is that I am convinced I need to build EVERYTHING. Right down to some stupid bolt I'll spend 2 hours on my lathe machining. And it still comes out like crap I think with a bike that looks as good as yours does, knowing my limitations and hiring out things like those wheels will end up with better execution.

Great job, I'd love to roll up to bike night on that
