1965 T120R Project Build

Like many of the Coventry makes, Triumph had their roots in the bicycle industry, beginning motorcycle production in 1902.

Yep ~ Now that I sorted the Trident and the Commando is proving as reliable as ever ~ I have not been seriously in the workshop for at least a month ~

It's a revelation~ and just like a holiday ~ rock :29 Much of mine was self inflicted as I changed the design of the mouse trap ~

Hopefully yours will all come together with a minimum of fine tuning ~ rock-on

She will be like fine Wine and not be fully on the road until it is time. No need to be in a hurry. :68

Thank you very much. Once I get this Fuel Tank issue behind us she will begin to look so much better. Yes she will look like most Bobbers out there but the huge difference is she will be My Bobber. :68

The original Triumph Fuel Tank wont fit with the DNA Springer Front End I am using at this time due to on a normal front end the Triple Tree is more forward in a triangle shape but on a DAN Springer Front End the Triple Tree is straight across like a old vintage girder front end. So for now we will use that small black peanut looking non asymmetrical to the frame and over all bike geometry type tank. Nothing I can do for now until the next Sacto Swap Meet where I will look for a tank that is 2 inches longer than the black tank I will use for now. So for now the Front Fender can be fabricated as needed to fit, The Front Brake Caliper can be installed and then the Battery Box fabricated up and mounted, entire Rear End Section wrapped up and keep moving and working around the bike as my budget affords and the builder has the time.

Until next update. Peace and Much Love, Honor and Respect for all who ride.
