Triumph - looks like it's using the frame as an oil tank.
Any chance of a few more pics??
To my eye, that is just so wrong on so many levels...... :eek1
I took the photograph in the early 90's. There were quite a few specials along those lines at the time. some better looking than others. Brit bike parts were dirt cheap and not particularly sought after.
That looks more like a Seely frame or maybe Rob North. I do not see the center pipe that is present on an OIF from the 70's.
A gorgeous Pre Unit tach drive 650 too... Wow.
Oh and a huge Weber ...!
could do. i haven't taken too many yet though.
Zilla! Sold! Blasphemous how could you?
That's a Beauty! You'll regret that!
Got my bikes out of Customs the other day. The KTM I rode up to the China border and the '38 Norton and '47 BSA that I picked up along the way.
There were a few things I needed to do to the Beeza and today was "start it" day. I bought this one sight unseen, so hadn't started it before. My first bike had been a '49 Matchless, so I reckoned I wouldn't have too many worries.
Well, I'm laid up now with a busted knee. Some miserable prick was supposed to have rebuilt this.... but the kickstart pawl slipped on about the tenth kick and my knee hyper-extended. Big time. I went down like a bag of shit. I've got one knee twice the size of the other now... can't bear load on it, can't bend it more than 10 degrees... can't straighten it either.
Now I know why there's a new kickstarter pawl set in the spares.
I did the same thing 30 odd years ago and it still gives me jip. Strangely enough that was a BSA as well. Hope it gets sorted quickly.
Geez Bigfella, that is a bummer. On a brighter note, that is one gorgeous BSA though. Look at the size of that kicker...! Must go along with the stroke of that big-ass single...!
Rest up, heal well, she will be worth the wait to ride.
Is there a supercharger mounted on the other side of that Weber?
I was going to mention that think it is the oil tank but I am not certain.
No wastegate for a super. Besides, that poor Pre-Unit would not take kindly to that, the Weber is bad (good) enough...!
Lovely Triumph on Flicker
Well, that dodgy '47 BSA kickstarter has given me a broken tibia and some bone fragments in the knee joint.
Who'd a thought a kickstarter would do that?
That is gorgeous... great lighting, picked up the Triumph on the grip perfectly.
Nice. I believe that's from the Toronto Mods n' rockers festival.
Haven't been to that event. Might have to check it out this year.
