That Enfield is nice. Any way to record the sound of the motor on that kind of ride?

Heaps of atmosphere in those pictures.

Motorcycle is gorgeous too. I know mine's growing into similar look, in due time: it's a natural evolution.

I thought I'll post a little update on my scrambler build. As you can see I'm working hard to make it look anything but the stock FT. And I will succeed, or die trying...

NO. They missed the mark. Seat's too big, square swing arm?! And look at that engine.

But this is comming form a guy who always compares that retro Triumph with a volkswagen new beetle:




Kawasaki did it right with the W-bikes, but the way these 'old' English bikes try to hitch a ride on the reputation of the legendary old English bikes is distasteful in my opinion.

Thought I would share my custom 1978 KZ400 scrambler with you guys.

Some pics with the Jerry cans:





And some without the Jerry cans. I prefer it without.
