    Wow! That looks like it would work. An up pipe I could live with! I like the brake pedal too!

    Some absolutely stunning looking bikes, what exactly constitutes a "scrambler", is it the up and over pipes, the styling or the offroadability or all the above ?

    I know we are not allowed to talk about anything that is not flat- but if you consider how this started life, it did not turn out so bad..

    That's a tracker. Not a scrambler and definitely not an airhead...so I'm confused.

    Does anyone have more information on this magazine article? I'm thing about this for my next project. R69 engine/transmission, /5 frame, /2 front brake, /5 front forks? (kinda close).

    I don't think the old triumph's had front brakes or this is a trend with them, my buddies bobber has no front brake as well.

    ....Then according to Darwin, Triumph riders will be a species in decline
