67 Triumph thingy



So here we go again. I had this engine laying around for some time now and will bring it back to life. I had the crankshaft re-ground to -.010 and polished the cases and con-rods. I plugged the original breather off the intake cam and drilled two 1/2" holes int the front engine casing chamber to act as the new breather. I have a new 750 cylinder and pistons which I will use. I installed new bearings and bushings along with new megacycle cams. More to come.

and



I've decided to use a belt drive so I carved a new primary cover out of a 1/4" aluminum plate and will run the clutch dry. I'm also installing a hydraulic clutch actuator. I have a Morris magneto that drives off the exhaust cam where the original tachometer drive was located. This magneto allows you to retard 24 deg. for starting.

and on



I'm using a David Bird frame from Lowbrow and a Paughco narrow springer. The frame is 1" lower at the rear wheel otherwise stock geometry, the springer is 2" over. I'm using a stock rear hub laced to a 16" Harley rim, I got the chrome rear hub, chrome brake drum/sprocket/backing plate from Factory Metal Works. I also ordered left side high pipes, foot pegs, brake and shift lever from Factory Metal Works. Still in the mock up stage; I don't like this seat or the rear fender and will swap them out later. Next stop is the powder coater for some color.
