    Ok, don't shoot me but I saw this bike and had to make one for myself. I took something kinda new and made it old looking. I am now rebuilding g the engine, transmission, and jampot shocks.  See video below:

    Oh, the Triumph front brake plate was switched out to a twin leading shoe Commando brake with upgraded support plate, tighter axel bushing, lengthened a d offset brake arms, and stiff cable housing to improve performance.

    I have a stage I Maney head and aluminum barrel. All engine and transmission internal parts and cases are micropolished, and as appropriate, coated with anti friction, ceramic, and oil slip coatingS to reduce parasitic drag. I figure I don't want to over stress the engine and transmission so reducing drag frees up HP and torque.

    An interesting project. The video is from 2009 though... Any pictures or vids to share that were taken in the intervening 7 years ...?

    Hello Eddie. I do have a few more pictures but as yet I've not been able to figure out how to post them.

    I started the project in 2009 and haven't been able to get back to it until now. The forks are now done and the brake plate modifications are next. I'm also working on the rebuild of the engine and transmission now. Pictures will soon follow.

    The Norton Roadholder forks have been rebuilt and converted to external spring and metal dust covers. The black tops will be stripped and brush chrome plated to match the originals.
