headerwrap

Post  mooner on Fri 4 Nov - 15:56

Today I bought some headerwrap to camouflage the ugly exhaust. Works quite well but make sure you start your bike outside. It's smokes a lot. Also mounted a (handmade)mirror.
See the pics for the result.

oil leeds

Post  mooner on Thu 15 Mar - 21:39

One of the anoying things about the bike was that there were rubber hoses on the lubrication system.
After a little course silver soldering the oil pipes are done. Need a bit of polishing but the base is there.
I made the (in dutch)banjo rings out of a piece of brass and the pipes itself out of old truck copper leeds.









Tomorrow connect the pipes again and hopefully they fit.
As soon as possible I show pictures when they placed on the bike.

The oillines look supernice but I have to admit that I liked the header pipes better with no wrap...

Very nice bike anyway!

Best regards

I know but that was the cheapest way to camofluage the ugly pipes. After a while the wrap has to go and buy some decent pipes. The thing is that they made these custom (read cut and welded) so you can see the were they cut.
A new chrome layer is not worth the pipes.

I'am finished with the silver solderings of the oil pipes. One the front and rear there were oil lines aswell. On the oilpressure gauge there was another.

Maybe iam gonna do the fuel line aswell (iam have a hang of it now).

There is also a project to move the carburator under an angle because it's breathing to close to the oiltank. Save that for later.

thanx

Harton

Post  mooner on Mon 3 Sep - 21:03

Hi,

It has been a bit silent on the Triton front. It has almost been transformed to Harton by the way. Because it is getting a bit colder and I missed power on the Triumph enigne, I decided to transform the Triton into a Harton.
Engine has been lined out and i'm starting to make the mounting brackets. The engine is a Ironhead 72,1000cc.





I'll keep you up to date with the project.
Any tips are welcome.

I decided to take the engine apart because I don't trust a engine I didn't see from the inside. The complete Ironhead is lying a on the shelf now and i'm waiting for some important parts to arrive.
Some other engine parts and made engine brackets are back from the powdercoating and that look realy nice. The cilinders I have painted with wrinkle finish. The idea is to get a black engine with alloy accents.



Welded brackets of the engine (if somone wants to start a similair project I can give the dimensions)

Harton almost finished

Post  mooner on Thu 23 Apr - 10:42

It has been very loooong quit on the Harton front , but I guess you didn't want to miss the reborn Harton. Almost ready for a testdrive.





I'm not satified with the licence holder. Got change it behind the seat like a caferacer should have it.
