I say well done...
that was quick.

Your bike has a nice clean and purposeful look about it...
maybe a reflection of the inner man / owner builder...

are you also a student of Zen, or some other
such thing... I wonder.

Hi..Luckyboy
You make me Embarassed and
Thanks anyway, that due to my family photogenic gen I think???
Zen is my good buddy, he very famous as Malaysian Triumph man.
I learned a lot from him and many time convoy together, but I always follow from the back, my featherbed just respect his big engine Sad
Hope other way round next convoy Laughing

Today shot before run it to my office in Carey Island..so far so good...no problem after 70 km



Long list to go:
1) Front mudguard
2) Rear brake
3) Rear Light
4) Gear lever
5) Etc...

Any idea plz..

Hi that's great news on the other cap.
I've read your other post back in September. I missed it when you posted it the first time, sorry.
I need to pay more attention

The Mudguards look great too. Can't wait to see it all together. If I can help at any time, just send me a message.
