Drive-In Barn

Last sunday I made a appointment at my brothers place to set of for
"Rocking at the drive in Barn".
It was the first time I took the Triumph out.
So he followed by car, just in case.
It was a great day and a nice drive.
And the trumpet drove like a rocket.

Me on the way there

The Trumpet

Did some preparation work for the new looks of the Triumph.
Dropt by my local metal supplier this morning and picked up some heavy metal bars and some tube to create my own studs and handlebars.
And I must say I am really pleased with the result.

Cut 2 peaces of 27 cm out of thick metal bar of 2 by 3 cm to replace the back spring.
This should drop the bike by 8 cm or ±3 inch


And then jus grind and grind.


This is a attempt for a sample for some handlebars.
I made a cad drawing as pattern.
This way it was a bit easier to cut the tube the right angle.


Some welds down. And I must admit that the result was even more pleasing
than the way it looked on paper.
I decided to go all the way


The finished result. More than jus a sample.
These will end up on the bike.
Check back soon for how they look in action.

New Toy

Today I drove to Oostkamp, close to Brugges to pick up my new toy,
It's a 1977 Triumph Bonneville T140.
It fitted perfectly in the trunk of my caddy MK1 Pick-up.
Too cool to be thru.

Not looking to bad the way it is now.
But with some miner changes, hope to get it looking more like a chopper
instead of a cafe-racer.

With the Panel back on his wheels, I finally had some time to mess out my workshop and seriously clean the place.
