Triumph build from scratch (pic heavy)

I'm new to this forum and I thank everyone that puts info in these forums to help other people like me to get started on a project like this. So I thought I would post some pics of my Bobber Build. We built the frame from 1 1/2" tube and 2" tube for the back bone. Its stretched 4" in the front and around 5" in the rear give or take..LOL
I'm 6'4" so I wanted to make sure I didn't look like a circus clown riding down the street.
Please feel free to throw all comments my way I have thick skin and can take it... This is my first build
Scott

Sorry no posts in a while. I have been working on another project of mine an old statecraft boat I picked up as I have been wanting to go fishing really bad...LOL
As far as the bike goes its sitting pretty close to the last pics I put in here. I have powder coated the rims and have the exhaust for it now. Monday I am starting on her full time again. So there should be more pics coming soon. Thanks for the interest its cool to see people possibly like what I'm doing as I'm no were near a pro at this. Take care!
Scott
PS I now its not a bike but here is the boat I brought back to life.

hi, nice build, couple suggestions- you might want to get a bigger 2 into 1 intake manifold, so the motor will get plenty of air

also why drum brakes, how about some newer honda crf wheels with disc brakes, i dont think drum brakes will stop that worth a shit, im sure there are tons on ebay or salvage yards
- i tried new "shinkos tires" best tire i ever used, no kidding really hooked up and inexpensive, so you can afford to change them more often
what carb you going to use?40mm flat slide "mechanical"would be sweet
good luck with the build

I'm going to be running a Bonneville head with two carbs this is just a mock up motor. As far as the drum brakes I'm just trying to build a bike as cheap as possible to see what I can come up with and the triumph drum wheel on the back and the honda front wheel was what was laying around. If they don't stop for what I feel is safe enough then I will look into the crf wheels you mentioned. Thanks for that info!

Well its been awhile. I finally started working on her again. Here are the pics before take down to paint the frame. Amazing when building a bike from complete scratch how much time the little stuff takes!
I spent the better part of the day today just getting my fender to mount/sit the way I wanted it to be...LOL

Need some opinions I'm starting to think it will look better with out a rear fender. I'll take some opinions on this if anyone cares to share. Thank!

I like a back fender because it makes the bike look complete, and it'll keep the rain, mud, and rocks from hitting you in the back!
