After spending almost all of my time reading through this looong thread I found that the Buchanan wheels were recomended. Also I saw the photos of Pascal's bike and I just knew it was something that I needed to do.

They were posted on the 23rd of April so I am expecting a delivery any day now.

A weekend of racing beckons so preparations have been made, the junk removed, plugs wired and racing numbers lovingly adorned. Only problem is it's been many years since the red mist descended on a closed curcuit so the plan is to have fun, keep my pretty (?) head low and try and keep the whole thing upright. I even wondered about sending BillyBoy but the other competitors might not like being blown away by a dorg!









I'll post some pics from the track next week and let y'all know how things went.

environmental things that can kill you while your riding your bike
you truly are kidding yourself. in my life I've seen impalements and necks broken on people with all the " right riding gear on " sure it helps from the abrasions and craked craniums, but talk to a few E.R. room doctors and they will straighten you out about all the things that can kill you when you hit them, riding fast or slow. bottom line, live and let live. life is not easy, cheap, or safe. quit riding that guy's a## in front of you, and instead, invite him to sit down at the bar and have a drink. you will both feel better.
VIVA Freedom!!


Viva la freedom indeed, part of the "freedom" is being able to disagree w/ other's point of views and riding habits

I completely 2nd that. Looks cheesy, cheap, and....... cheap. Bikes only got 200 something miles on it to. It's a shame it's been defaced

Bad ass bike Grizzly.
I will be curious on how dependable your motor remains with its build up.
And it will be interesting how your bike fares against any two valve ducs you may run up against.

Just have fun!

That thing must go so fast now that you are afraid to look at a speedometer.

Love the safety wired oil filler cap. Is the oil drain plug safety wired too?

The issue here is that he didn't leave anything for contrast. He could have left the heat shields or exhaust, and cam cover or carbs, and foot levers silver. Instead your brain just shuts down. Also it looks like he didn't even take the chain off when he painted it. And jeebus he painted over the triumph logo on the engine case!

What happens when he rides it for the first time and bubbles all that paint on the exhaust?

I hope this is just the first step before the second coat and detailing.

The ad seems mighty suspicious. 200 miles? Really?

Yeah, The 200 miles seems pretty fishy. Also notice the chrome is showing thru on the "powder coated wheels" . Overspray on the neck manufacturers
decal is another nice touch. I would bet He doesnt have a title and sprayed it bike black to disquise it.


I was hoping the flat black craze would last for five minutes then go away.I was looking thru a co-workers 2010 Harley catalog the other day, Almost all their bikes come standard in "suede black" and you have to pay extra for shiny paint. What a crock!


On a positive note If you scratch it all you have to do is run down to walmart a buy a 1.99 can of paint to restore it.
