The original Triumph Fuel Tank wont fit with the DNA Springer Front End I am using at this time due to on a normal front end the Triple Tree is more forward in a triangle shape but on a DAN Springer Front End the Triple Tree is straight across like a old vintage girder front end. So for now we will use that small black peanut looking non asymmetrical to the frame and over all bike geometry type tank. Nothing I can do for now until the next Sacto Swap Meet where I will look for a tank that is 2 inches longer than the black tank I will use for now. So for now the Front Fender can be fabricated as needed to fit, The Front Brake Caliper can be installed and then the Battery Box fabricated up and mounted, entire Rear End Section wrapped up and keep moving and working around the bike as my budget affords and the builder has the time.

Until next update. Peace and Much Love, Honor and Respect for all who ride.

Great Update 4 22 2013
Build is going great.

1: Getting ready to tie in ALL of the wiring to the main Electronics Box.

2: Getting ready to install and properly time the Boyer Ignition(builder told me he has to talk to a couple people to be sure he got it right or have an old Triumph Head come in and pay him to time it properly), he worked on it initially but he was HONEST and told me he had not worked with one before. I can RESPECT a mechanic who can confess his short comings if any.

3: Ordering up the Speedometer and setting up Mechanical Gear Drive for the Speedometer on the Front Axle.

4: Gas tank has been mounted and secured.

5: Need to mount front Fender, Mirrors, Front Turn Signals.

6: Getting her started and idling to check the Top End Gaskets for ANY leakage.

7: Install Clutch Cable and check Clutch Pack fir stickiness and check the Primary Chain.

7: Mount the new Exhaust System.

8: Mounting my Saddle Bags.

9: Just a bunch of Misc little things but no big major issues.

Major focus is to get this bike up and idling. We must see what this engine which has sat for 4 years will do and wont do.

Paint, bling, glitter, fluff and the cutsie junk can come later.

Builder guesstimates 2-3 weeks more and she should if all goes correctly be able to come home and for me to take her out for her road trials.

Thanks. Rode the 2 blocks home but she needs some TLC from a Triumph Mechanic which she will be getting in mid to late August after I get a plate on her.

Bike is at the Engine Shop now. She is in some dire needs of some British Engine Love. Top end job, Clutch Basket and the fine tuning it taskes with the dual carbs with the Boyer Ignition too.

Sorry I have not posted in forever.
The Engine Shop
Well the news is we are in the Engine Shop for a complete rebuild. That is the best way to make sure this T120R Unit is going to be as solid as it can be.
Engine Top End has been tore down and there are some issues with the Head and the Jugs but the Mechanic assured me that they can all potentially be fixed and made right.
The other issue was the Bottom End is one of the Connecting Rods was to tight onto the Crank Journal so we decided we are into it this far we might as well just go all the way into it and pull the Crank, check EVERYTHING inside and do the job correctly.
This includes a brand new set of AMAL Concentrics as well.
So what I will have when all is said and done is a brand new and fresh professionally built T120R Unit I know I can rely on.
Oh I forgot to mention it has been bored out .80 over. The Engine Builder said we might have to take the Cylinders out just a tiny bit more but he assured me there is plenty to work with.
I think he is like a kid in a candy store getting to work on my bike. The man is very cool and very straight forward.
Until the next update. Keep the rubber to the road, please respect all who ride and MLH&R.
