My '65 Triumph project.

Hi all. It's been sometime since I last posted a pic of my project so I thought I'd post some. I bought this bike about two years ago with the idea of stripping it down and rebuilding. Nothing too full on, just reshaping rear guard, putting together front guard for RWC (will be removed), installing ...

posting pics.....how?

At the risk of sounding like a dumb bum, how do you post pics? I've done it before via photobucket and they worked fine, I've just uploaded more photos to share but for the life of me I can't work out how to post them. No doubt it's something obvious but I'm missing it. Can anyone give me a rundown ...

Interesting....I spoke to the boys at Trojan and they seem to think 4 - 4.5k is reasonable enough but it does depend on how much is being replaced. They seem to think that a rebuild done in ones garage may cost in the order of around 2k but they have seen a lot of motors from said garages.....in nee...

$'s for a '69 Unit rebuild?

I've recently been shown why my motor needs a rebuild. New pistons, rings etc. The motor was considered good overall but definately needs the rebuild. What I wasn't ready for was the 'ballpark' price. Without going into detail, the price quoted was somewhere between 4K to 4.5K. This was just for the...

Thank you all very much. I've gotta say that the welds are ok. It's just trying to get a smooth finish all around. I didn't intend to do it that way, it's just progressed in that direction. :) At the end of the day, if it does crack, pull it down and start again. At least this time I'll be more vers...

Body Filler choice

Hi again. The rebuild continues. just to put you in the picture, it's a '65 Triumph Bonneville. 18" over etc. Pics have been posted in the past. It really does look a treat. I've now had the frame sandblasted and primed and have begun bogging up bracket welds and general evening off of certain servi...

I'm not seeing much local Aussie bands.
Nice choice with Hatfitz though.
Speed Demons.
They're the stuff!

Congrats to you Chucky. Well done.
I noticed you have no front guard. Not a RWC requirement?
I'm busting my ring trying to attach to a springer front end with little success. Now I'm interested in finding a way around it all.
Once again, well done.

Thanks for the advice. I shall check and report.

It seems seeking answers to one question tends to raise more questions.

Oh the joy......

exhaust for 69 Bonneville wanted

This may seem like a sill question but I'm wondering if it's possible to get standard pipes for a '69 by either:
a/ motorcycle wrecker in Vic who deals with brit bikes
b/ buy aftermarket pipes and if so, where in Vic
c/ get custom made pipes

further questions are coming..............

Cheers

The questions are racking up slowly and some I've been able to answer. Others,...........please read on I bought this bik...
