Vintage motorcycles, metal sorcery, useless information to drive my imagination...

Triumph is killing me. Happens everytime.
Made my way over to Morris Magneto aka Morristown Cycle to pick up the mag.
Put the mag on and sure enough it fired up on the first kick. At this point, I was pretty happy. Unfortunately, after running for a few, the left cyliner started smoking and then blowing oil. I ripped the top end off and found the oil ring was shot. Sucks but easy enough to fix.
In the meantime, check out my friend Pat at Jersey Metal Shaping. He makes custom sheet metal anything but specializes in panels for old cars. If you have a Ford Roadster, you'll be psyched.
The headlight is a Unity fog light off a 50's Ford.
