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

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

    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.

    Ridiculous, poor taste, marketeering iso thinking. Oh yes, it's a bloody shame too.

    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.
