Wow nice work!!! 2 questions, as I am currently working on my own triton project;
- You fitted external springs on the roadholders, did you just slide them over or is it a conversion in that you removed the internal damper rods/springs?
- You fitted a revcounter, however, is it the special pre-unit fabric type of timing case cover that you have for that or is it an internal adjustment?
Nice work!!!

answer to your question

Post  tritonton on Thu 16 Apr - 18:22

At first thank you for the compliments!

I took a look at your project and that's very nice too.

To answer your first question: I've tried to slide the external springs just over the roadholder-stanchions without internal damper rods in the first stage of my rebuild, but without succes. The frontfork was far too soft with bad damping, so I deceided to look for a better solution. I've found mine at Chris Knight Motorcycles who sells a complete kit for a very reasonable price. This kit works very good.

-answer to the other question: I still need a rev.counter timingcover for my Triton, as you can see in a close look there is no cable on my rev counter. I hope to find one once for a price which is not as high as the gold price.
For other people who did ask what was missing on my "nearly" finished Triton, this is the answer.
And to be honest, a caferacer is never ready, there is always something to improve.

Wow!!! That is a cutie!. I love the fact that you used a pre-unit. Units tend to look lost in a featherbed. To me balance is everything. If you build a hot rod car it should look slightly unbalanced. By that I mean slightly out of proportion. Tritons and other specials need to look balanced and inproportion. This (to me anyway) you have achieved handsomely. I think its the Suzy 4LS and 19" rims. Congratulations.

all right, thanks, now I know how it works with the external springs, and thanks for the reference to Chris Knight Motorcycles, guess I will order some parts there someday!!!
