Just tidying the site up, not been done for a long time. Fixing the gallery and other odds n sods
More Work On The Enfield
Got the seat back, exhaust is mocked up just need to tack it then pull it back off and weld it – oh and make tidier hangers.
Decided to get stuck in to the Interceptor, the seat is away at the upholsterers being re-shaped and covered in black with a grey top, while I’m waiting for that I thought I might as well hack in to the exhaust so I bought some Hinkley Triumph T100 mufflers for 200 bux – grab the angle grinder and rock n roll!!
Gwladys the T100SR
This is Gwladys the 1966 Triumph T100SR.
Why call it Gwladys? When I first got it it needed a little work and I was talking to my Mam and asked her if she’d ever been for a ride on a bike as there are numerous pictures of her sitting on various bikes my brother or myself owned, her response was ‘no not unless they’ve got training wheels you won’t get me on one’. After a brief discussion she agreed to let me take her for a ride around the front and back garden when the trumpy was finished.
Mam passed away before I got it finished so in honour of her I called the bike “Gwladys.”
Slight change of appearance to the VN1500
New Stable Buddy For The Tiger
Picked up this 1995 VN800A for the princely sum of $1600 – it doesn’t look like this anymore, repainted it black then covered it in coarse metal-flake followed by 6 coats of Candy Apple Blue, 12″ up apes on 2.5″ risers and a braided brake line.
Not too sure if I’m going to airbrush it yet, only time and boredom will tell.
Oh the joys of playing silly buggers 😛
In early April 2017 my Dad passed away, late April I see his Facebook account is memorialised – fast forward to April 2018 and I’m still trying to get his account deleted. Sent these clowns all the info they ask for and still all I get is a canned response, I wonder how many more accounts such has his are there? Damn sure Facebook use them to artificially boost user numbers!
