Wheels

Wallace,

The wheels are stock sized rims from Dubya in CA.

They are aluminum Excel rims with a mangesium colored Talon hub and black nipples and spokes.

I live in NC, and with shipping I paid just under $1400 for them. It was by far the most expensive addition to the bike, but the weight difference is huge, and they are the best looking part of the bike in my opinion.

(Also, the mangesium hubs match almost perfectly to the Progessive 970 shocks on the rear)

Well, keep it in mind if you do decide to look for one. This one is pretty done up.

Feel free to PM me if you want to throw around some numbers. You never know....

Thumb Colours, plural - yay!!

I love the look of that Luna Silver and Diablo Red colour scheme for 2014 MY.
Thanks for posting that Ch!ppy.

Nice to see Triumph offering Scrambler with a colour scheme again! Been a long time of single colours.

Joy!

Also went from a 640 adv. to a Scrambler...

Things I miss from the KTM
- Tanker size fuel tank
- Suspension/ground clearance

What I like about the Scram
- Stunning good look
- Simplicity and ease of maintenance
- Did I say it's darn good looking?

If you slow down enough, you can take the Scram to most places you'd have taken your 640... Assuming your definition of fun isn't playing in swamps or sand dunes...

Yeah, I love my Thruxton, but if that color was on the dealer's floor when I was shopping last year I wouldn't have looked twice at anything else...

I always thought just that plus a big authentic ammo can would be the bomb! That and a larger gas tank.

Thanks. Sounds like great memories.
I bought the scram to ride while I worked on my BMW R100gs that is currently down. I'm really impressed with how well the Triumph handles the fire roads and two track stuff. Makes me not miss the Beemer so much. Tons of fun!

My Scrambler...

Pretty much stock, exceptions are airbox gone, TOR exhaust, Dynojet'd carb, some cosmetics. I really love the bike.

As well you should!

I don't often see a chrome chainguard on a Scram; I like it on yours.

I know, I know. BUT, I just got back from overseas, and my wife is still deployed. She finally saw the bike after I finished it (her first time seeing a Scrambler), and she hates it. She asks where is she supposed to ride? She wants me to look at something like what I had before. I had a RoadKing Classic, and will probably look at Street Glides this time.

Anyways, my loss could be someone's gain if they are looking for a sweet, basically brand new Scrambler, as it has under 180 miles on it right now.

I've spent about 17 grand on her all said and done, but I know that you never get that back on a bike.

I am not officially posting her for sale yet, but I thought I would ask your guys opinion on here. I'm thinking about asking 14,500. What do you think?

Here is one crappy iPhone picture. If I do list it on here, I will get my buddy with his fancy camera to take some good pics.


Here are the goodies it has:

Wheels (Excel rims, Talon hubs and spokes) all black w. mangnesium hubs
Zard Cross Exhaust
Progressive 970 shocks w/ piggyback resevior
Custom paint w/ vintage Triumph hand painted logo
Thruxton gel seat
British Customs Airbox Removal Kit
Joker mirrors w/ metric adapters
MAS rear fender
MAS front fender
ASV F3 Sport series shorty levers
Continental TKC80 tires, front and rear
Black Powdercoating on most shiny parts
Ceramic coating of exhaust
Airtech fiberglass side covers
Skid plate
RaceTech .85 progressive front spring
YSS Emulators
Black front brake resevior
Headlamp grill
British Customs Retro turn signals, black
LED Rear taillight
Joker ignition relocation bracket
Renthal Vintage/Desert handlebars
Aluminum Headlight brackets
Aluminum folding shifter
Rear turn signal relocation brackets
AI removal
Oury grips


It would also come with every stock part I took off, as I still have them all.

Thoughts?

You left the footpegs off the list.

Finding someone that wants a bike just the way you wanted it is hard (well, impossible). I believe that the way to get the most $$$ back out of it would be by selling the custom parts separately and returning the bike to stock.

No, I could not do it either. It would be too hard mentally to 'undo' all the improvements and changes that you spent so much time figuring out but that is why 'customs' rarely sell for what they cost to build.

If you've got pictures on Photobucket you're most of the way there. Open Photobucket in another window on your browser.

Click on the stored picture to enlarge it. There are four boxes under the heading "Links to share this photo" at top right. Click on the third one down, "HTML" and it will flash with "Copied".

Come back to the ADV message window and paste the link directly into the message pane. Click on the "Preview Post" button and your picture will be there.

Ok, so maybe not!!!! Maybe I need to do this from a real computer, not an iPhone.

Thanks for trying to help anyway, I appreciate it.

Ps,

What do most of you guys idle these bikes at for rpm? Not exactly sure how accurate my tachometer is but I'm aroundn 1200-1300 rpm, 1000 sounds too low. Wonder what minimum is to not discharged the battery while at stop lights etc? Gonna plug in some heated gloves and vest this winter and don't want to overwhelm the alternator/generator/rectifier. Although I don't spend much time at idle anyway!

Thanks
