1965 Triumph 650 T120R Classic Rigid Bobber

The ongoing story of a man and his machine one day being able to enjoy the open road together.

This Project and I have come a long way to get to point she is finally in the Build Shop. If I had my own garage, the needed tools and much bigger storage unit at my Duplex Apartment I would be doing everything I could on her until I needed to get her into a Build Shop. We do what we must do. There are some small things I have been able to do at home which is helping cut down on my Build Labor costs though.

Here is a picture of the rolling Chassis. I just semi-mounted the Seat yesterday and need to get some updated pics but you can also follow my build off my blog linked on my signature.

I look forward to reading a lot of the tech tips here on building Rigid's and making them the sweet little rides they can be.

I've seen a few but you have to have the adapters to install them. Ya the whole project is fun in building, going hunting pieces and parts and watching it slowly come together. If we cannot adapt these Mikuni's it will be another set for sure.

Thank you for the comments.

Yup California Law on a rebuild and they mainly go by the frame VIN which is a 1968. They add in your engine number too no matter what it is to create you a new VIN, Besides I like the look of some small turn signals on the front and yes there will be matching signals on the back. We have a lot of idiots here in the states.

I saw the Amal's on you blog, did you give up on the Mikuni's? BTW the Amals are great carbs.

No have not given up on anything yet. Just pre cleaning them both up for rebuilding. I really want to run the newer Mikuni's later. First we will use the AMALs to get her up and running. If it turns out the AMALs are the better carb I will just upgrade to as brand new pair. Just depends. It is not like I will be drag racing or anything...lol.
