5.00 carb... yes!

I got this Carter Carb. for 5 bucks of of some guy. I went through it and it looks good, but I will still clean it out.. Score.. it's almost free...

Wow, now it's getting cold...

Been hitting it outside again ..... 30 Degrees... It's o.k. I'm from MN, right! no It still sucks and things go slower because I don't have a real heater.
Right now I 'm am working on making a seat mount bracket, and waiting to go get some steel for my battery box.. I will try to get some more photos..

Battery box and things..

Well I need to come up with a plan for the type of battery box I need to make to fit on the ol' Triumph.. I made one and it was too tall, so I thought I could make it work another way.. no! I need to start over and come up with something better... After that, Some small things like a brake switch, brake light, lic# bracket, paint, and wiring.

650 progress

"It's a long way to the top if you want to rock n' roll..."Bon Scott
I'm getting there 1 bolt at a time..

Coil power..

Slow but sure, the 650 is coming along. I got the coil mounted the other night, and now I need to make a battery box. I have to figure out if I will connect the electronic ignition box to the outside of the battery box or not.. ? See what works the best...
