Always a work in progress...
OEM single seat...?
Also...what exhaust is that?
No brand names on the seat but it did come from Germany via inmate bmweuro. I'm told the 2-1 pipe is a Luftmeister, I cut off the rotten flared end and installed a Supertrapp disc for easy tuning and the built in spark arrestor.
Beautiful bikes guys! Nice /5! I like the fender choices-used to have a '72 SWB. I'm looking for a muffler for my 2-1. Think Supertrapp may be the way to go for my /6. I bought wider sidecar bars for my project. What bars and tires?
Tasty Triumph- I really like the paint scheme.
Renthal Vintage Desert bars and Dunlop K70 tires on the /5. I drool every time I see this Triumph, the seat, rack and pipes would be so perfect on my 64 Trophy....
another XT500.. one of my top 10 dream bikes, I finally found one in my area/pricerange, so I jumped on it! I dont have any huge plans for it yet. I feel like the XT500 was one of the last factory scramblers. in the 80s the spread between dirtbike and streetbike got real wide. anyways here is a pic
The way motorcycles are supposed to look.And really, do you need anything more than that in a bike anyway?
Maybe a little larger saddle bags.
2003 Indian Enfield, tastefully modded by me for me:
That's his sex object the Triumph GT6 next to him. She's much more impressed by his manliness now he's got chunkier Mitas tires, rather than the Dunlop Plastic Slip-ons he had when new.
An earlier experiment with different pipe design, work well until I crunched them [bottom half - below the front lower bend!] @ Kowen Forest Ride, no bashplate!
2010 Batemans Bay Apex Ride, note pipe design & bashplate in progress!
Moved the sidestand back fom its original position, kept getting hooked on tree stumps/logs, :eek1
It's solid & it's steel & it works!
Here's my '66 T100SC, the original 'Jack Pine' enduro. I seem to be going the opposite direction, returning this bike to stock from a few custom mods. P.O. put on some drag style pipes (pictured) but recently found some 2 into 1 high pipes on lowbrow. Much better. The only thing I've done to it is replace the original monobloc carb with an updated concentric amal, next up are tires and a silencer for the side pipe. Love this bike!
pipes that came with it.
and with the new 2 into 1 pipes
If anybody has more info on the stock 'Jack Pine' T100SC's from '65 and '66, please let me know. Info & pics are scarce on google. I'm trying to get this bike back to bone stock. thx.
Double Sweet !!
Man, that's one smokin' 500! How loud is it with the new pipes?
It's in beautiful shape.
Wayne --- awesome!!
Who makes those 2 into 1 pipes Wayne?I'll be starting a rebuild on my T100 soon and I'd like a set just like them.
hmmm...food for thought, I know of a 70's R65 for sale recently with a bent frame, could make a nice scrambler?
Except for the 'bent frame' part .... hell yes. The higher reving R65's are perfect candidates.
