Perhaps your readers will enjoy some pics of my bike.
I built this `67 Bonnie out of two totally trashed desert sleds. The seat is a Bates TT seat cut and widened to match the rear frame rails. Braced swingarm is a period piece and was on the bike when I got it. Aside from the Works shocks, the chassis is stock.
The engine, however, is rather special. As some of you may know, the Japanese gamble racers ran 2-piece Triumph engines back in the day. These engines were very highly tuned. A friend of mine is a gamble racer with a large stock of old Triumph parts. He gave me the flowed, center-plug head and a set of blueprinted Concentrics (A Japanese tuner went to England and had a batch of carbs made to his specifications). He also gave me the quick turn throttle (from a Yamaha road racer) and a set of light throttle springs (makes a big difference in throttle response).
Anyway, after getting all these trick parts there was no way I could just slap together a stock bottom end, so I sent the crank to Falicon for blueprinting and balancing, sent the Morgo 750 cylinder to Bore Tech for blueprinting and their special cylinder wall treatment, had Venolia make a set of pistons to fit, slipped in a set of mild Megacycle cams and "R" followers, sparks by Boyer and wow, does she run strong!
Anyway, great site. Triumphs forever!
