Well the motor and tranny rebuilds are done. Ron from The Bike Works took care of the tranny rebuild with no problem. I did most of the motor stuff and thanks to Donny from Lucky Charm for the magneto, its such a nice piece.

So I have been working on my triumph drag bike for a little now and was wondering what to run in the rear for a tire. Yesterday, I talked to Cody and Hurst Racing Tires and found out they will be making a 4.50 x 18 slick which will fit the triumphs! They are planning on the summer for release, I am ordering like ten! Pics below are a prototype they have made.

So my son is always asking if he can build a bike, I mean a real bike bc he likes helping me with my stuff. Sometimes he will pick up one of my catalogues and tell me what he needs to order. So since my triumph drag project is going against a father and son team, why not have Cole help me, its never to early to start, he will be 4 in March!

Well I am putting another project on the list, as if I need any more. I am friends with the local bike shop and they are restoring their old drag bike from the 70's. Its an ironhead and it was fast, but its going to be street legal now. So we cam up with a little fun competition, their HD versus my 63 triumph I have sitting around. Gonna have to hop up the motor and light the chassis, but it should be fun. Anybody got advice, haha! Pictures coming soon...
