You really are one luck guy Doug. Give Poly an apron, a pair of gloves and some degreaser. She may as well do something useful instead of just tripping over the bits

Doug, that is just too cool on the Norton!

Take that as an omen that your ride is meant to be. Not without trials and tribulations - but meant to be.

Good stuff Doug!


I assume you're going to be in Daytona for Bike Week again this year?

The Alabamian is very quiet. No news from the lab/garage.

its been a bit quiet, as far as my projects go, been working on getting caught up after bikeweek.
My friend Grigoriy who does my seats & bags made me a tank bag to fit on the stock rack of my '65 TT. as always, he did a great job, and I showed it to some other triumph guys, & several of them want one. He was pretty surprised, but I knew it would be popular with the triumph guys. I need to find one of those old german BMW tank bags for him to copy, I think they would sell also.



Also, I had recently found the correct tank for the bike, & got a set of badges at a swapmeet, so I got it all together. I think its looking pretty good. and it starts first kick. I have a Hunt magneto for it that I sent to Hunt to have freshened up. Once that gets back, I'll be pretty much finished with it. Needs some mud on it tho, gonna have to try it out in some dirt!

Nice little runner. And the bag looks perfect on there.

...wow...when did you get that! Beauty TR Doug.
If you're gonna mud it around, might I suggest some foam air filters...Bonnies can be a bitch as it is to get the carbs right.
