Re: Danny's XS Hardtail...

It looks like that was a tricky hardtail install; well done Prof. The photo with Paul holding the 'chop saw' is great! Good that Danny got involved too. It looks so much cleaner with that hardtail installed. Would it have been any easier in the frame jig? So, when is Danny coming back for the rake j...

Kawasaki 1105 Santee softail radical chop, Yukon

Hey Prof, I built this in 1993 and won a First Place trophy at the ISCA World of Wheels in Calgary, Alberta. I sold it 13 years ago in Whitehorse and see it's for sale again. https://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTIwMFgxNjAw/z/UIgAAOSwrWVbD2Y-/$_59.JPG https://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTIwMFgxNjAw/z/7iMAAOSwt5VbD2Y...

Hey prof,
I'm just wondering about your slugs - do you machine them to have a section that is a tight fit which extends down into the tube - beyond just the threaded portion?

Re: Hi everyone, south of adelaide

I'm wondering if it could be one of the ones in the thread: John's Collections, in Oz bikes from the past...maybe the one in the garage with the coffin tank, or the one beside it on the bench

Re: Long term Triumph Chopper project

You've got a great start for a good lookin' chop! Good that you are gettin' that frame back in use - too bad hacksaws cut that frame tube, instead of pullin' the rocker boxes to get the engine out... Love that P&P girder, they ride so solid compared to a springer. I use the info I got from Paul Durf...

Re: Sarting your Trumpy for the first time...

When you are ready to start it, have the oil tank cap off(or nearly off) and as soon as it starts, check for oil return to the tank - may need a flashlight. No oil return means no oil feed. You can then check for oil flow to the top end by cracking an oil feed nut on the rocker box.

Re: Rear drum sizes

Short of going out and measuring one of mine, here is some info which may be helpful: Can you identify this mystery brake drum? It was found in a pile of K parts. The bolt holes match up with a K rear hub. The 46 tooth sprocket (odd) is non-removable (even odder) - it is part of the drum casting. Is...
