Looks like a 5.0 inch wide tire to me which will just fit if you offset spoke your rim about 10 millimetres to the right side. That's what I've done with mine and had no issues with the tire clearance.

It was no problems fitting the tire, 16" x 5.0. I did have, however, some chain issues, the chain is very close to the frame (good clearance to the tire though), i solved this with a distance on the rear axle.

like your ride!

for me it looks much better with the "phat" tyre on the tail than before ...

just maybe a dumb question but i'm not that into Triumph: the hardtail is just a "bolt on part" which can be used instead of the "normal" shock-assy layout?

would love to have such a hardtail-kit for my rides also ...

Yes, the triumph frames from 63 to 70 are bolted together and the simples way to hardtail it is to just replace the aft section. For your info: I own a KMZ k-750 which not that different from you rides.

BTW, I had some stability issues with the other wheel so I needed to alter the bikes geometry.

sounds like a real easy way to get from a softtail to a hardtail ...

i will start looking for such a triumph as soon as i get permanently back to europe - i need of of them ...

with the KMZ you talk about the russian "DNEPR"-bikes!? still in the sidecar configuration? i used to ride my first one (see picture) also in the sidecar setup but riding without the bucket is much more fun ...

Nice Work...

Now that is what Meriden should have offered as a solo. I feel the chrome is in all the right places for a britbike. Yes I had a lot of BSA's with their ditinctive chrome tanks and this is just plain perfect!!

Speedway fender-stay

I fabricated an old style speedway type fender-stay and installed it together with an aluminum fender, torn out OK. Now it will be much easier for my mates to push start me when my engine is tired.
