I got it bad for the pre units. Here's my latest project. A 1956 Triumph Tr6 that was collecting dust in the ol' Ed Brooks Motorcycle Shop in San Jose. More pics to come.
The Unfinished Project show was a blast. Thanks Jason and Jason. Also, thanks Jason for the pics I stole.
This tired dinasour racer is in retirement at the shop. She's living out her later years aside her successors- swing arm pre units, 1960 unit constructions and oil in frames.
Been after one of these for a while. Finally I was lucky enough to pay way too much for a dented rusted can of old crappy oil.
Ol' "Bugs" could ride the heck out of a BSA. I read he grew up always riding the jalopy, smaller bike and that's what made him so fast. He had to ride those crumby little bikes super hard to keep up with his buds. (not sure if that's him on the bottom left)
This has nothing to do with motorcycles. Just something that blew my mind when I was walking down the street with my mutt.
The bobber is officially dead! Stop running those stock tanks, take off those giant stock headlights, stop lacing up 16 inch rear wheels and stop polishing up those motors. Let that ol' girl leak a lil oil and mark her territorry. Show off that patina and the battle scars.
