'72 TR6R Fat tire

I've been working on it for about 2 years. Sold origional wheels controls etc last year and aquired the tires and wheels. Been buying lot of stuff of ebay, taking time to buy rite.

I made a little progress over the last couple weeks attached are photos of fender and tail light mounted. made a special bracket for the license/taillight that clamps to the 1" tube so that i could move it forward.

Getting ready to build a twisted springer for it to fit the 21 x 2.15 Avon venom and GSXR brake w/ Revtech Scorpion rotor. Tank is just sittin there may have to move it back with the 50 deg rake. In process of cutting the neck right now.

Later

How cool! I miss the Triumphs, BSAs, and Jap 4-cylinder chops of the '70s!

I don't know if you are going retro, but here are a few paint jobs I did in that era, for ideas.

I'm so excited

Made some more progress. Stripped her down and welded out all brackets from mock up. Cut the neck to 50 degrees, that was scary.

Got most of the springer front end built. Bought some twisted front legs off a junk springer off ebay. They worked out real well. Had FabKevin cut out my trees and he did a real nice job. Currently making the spring perches and bushings, the easy part. The hard part will be mounting the cool looking GSXR caliper and torque link.

Once I can get her setting right on the ground, I'll weld the kick stand bracket in place to get the right lean. It's terrible not being an engineer, take twice as much work figuring things out.

While welding out brackets on the frame I couldn't stand how the lower motor mount brackets looked so I cut em off and ground the frame smooth. One step forward two back! Anyway, I'll have to put the motor back in to spot the brackets.

Man, I'm gettin close!

Coming along slowly

Well, finished the springer spring perches and bushings. Got the kick stand bracket welded in place and placed her on the floor, leaning on the kickstand! Cool! Thought i'd never make it this far. Got the engine in so that I can relocate the new lower engine mounts.

A buddy of mine came down to visit from Kansas and really like the bike. He's in the sheetmetal business so he offered to make me a coffing tank and oil bag so we took her apart and put the bike in a compartment in the bottom of his motor home. Should be exciting to see what he comes up with. anyway, I'm without my project for a while.

Took some pics before she left.

Also took a pictures of the shop that you gotta see, the race car's my sons!
