Late night Buell mods

I bought this Thunderbolt a while back and until I have time to really do what I want with it, these simple mods will have to do.

Headlight bracket (Bates knockoff side mount light will be painted black)

tail chopping

new tail/brake/directionals

Some sort of small fairing/windscreen will be in order


I've been too busy to snap many photos as of late.

Here's what I bought at the Stafford swap Sunday, nothing too special.

Some progress

Got a seat mounted on the Triumph and threw the Wassell on it nice and high. Check out an upcoming issue of Iron Horse if you care enough to see how a goon like me goes about mounting a seat with the help from the boys @ Biltwell and Lowbrow Customs.

Some perspective

Same tank, one with modifications.

Shortened 3 inches, front narrowed about an inch, and some height shaved off. Tank shell is being made for an SR project a friend of mine has in his shop.


I may get some hate mail for placing this Sportster tank on a Triumph, but I had to see how it looked. I'm split between this tank or the Wassell. Let the discussions begin.

some bends

Got a few more days before the arrival of some stainless handlebar bungs, so here's some bends in mild steel my friend Evan made in the bender while I was working on tanks. Thanks for the help EM.

Terry's playground

Oh so jealous of TCP's new shop. It makes me want to move to Wenatchee.

WA 2010

Thanks to Gorms, Toecutter, and Johan. It's always a blast running around the state of WA with my East crew.
