Exhausts something like sorted and frame pretty much done…happy days!!…paint done by me 😀25th May 2015 at 8:49 am #12496
I like the look of that. Nice snug fit. Bet it sounds awesome.
How’s the rest of it coming on? MOT booked yet?25th May 2015 at 10:15 pm #12506
Lol not quite ready for mot but hopefully in the not to distant future 🙂25th May 2015 at 11:09 pm #12497
Being honest it is not the way I want to see a B1 but as I know the way the frame was already modified when you picked it up I think you are doing it proud. It will be a great slant on what can be done. Look at this for inspiration 750 twin bobber15th June 2015 at 6:35 pm #12503MichaelParticipant
I like the two mufflers on one side.
How did you route the downtubes to achieve that ?

Hi Michael, the exhaust was a MAC 2 into 1
but i chopped off the muffler and got two kick up’s for a t100 triumph then put my silencers on them , when i get time i’ll put some pics up 🙂 T he front end is XS1100, tank is modified stock, back wheel z1000 and is caliper gs750, back mudguard Harley sportster not finished that yet! seat is waiting for springs…….oh yeah i cheated on the engine, i sprayed that with some engine paint from work! it will all come together when the side panels are made to flow with the tank!!
Tank Colour is Juiced Green Metallic Pearl with 5 coats of Lacquer…..so far!
Ahh pics: i know it looks like in going backwards on this but i’m not!
This is the final build now so should not be too long, i’ll take some more pics when i go down the workshop again….
Above all i’m blessed to have the use of the workshop and have so much room, and a very nice man who is a top welder

That is looking very smart. How long before she/he gets fired up?22nd June 2015 at 10:35 pm #12508
Good Question, i just try and do stuff as and when i can but i’m going to try for July poss august, but we will see.
pic of the poor man on the floor is my friendly welder PJ, who made me a nice new rear brake spindle since the was cut off at some point, bless him….and its his workshop..28th June 2015 at 5:30 pm #12516AERIAL0Participant
All looking good. Keep up the good work and looking forward to seeing the finished bike.
Need to get some motivation to finish mine.28th June 2015 at 8:01 pm #12509
Thanks Aerialo, A bit more done, been on with the seat springs today and also chopped of the back mudguard to something like where i want it…..the finished seat pan is actually going to made from 4mm steel! that’s what happens when i get my welder/ fabricator man on the job for me, he likes to use hefty stuff ha ha his job is a marine engineer and classic car restorer 🙂 other pic is the triumph t100 exhaust kick ups that i put on the chopped odd 2 into 1 and the megaphones slide over them21st July 2015 at 6:45 pm #12510
Thought i better do an update just to say i’m still slowly moving on, had to make a new rear brake lever spigot, and a bracket to hold the master cylinder on i nearly finished the seat, and as ya can see changed the rear mudguard, that one is from a Honda and of course will be sprayed green.21st July 2015 at 9:51 pm #12499
Good progress there Kaye. Quite a few of the niggley bits done. Hopefully it will be more straight forward now and we will soon hear her roar into life.
