At my mate daves tonite drinking and talking shit in his garage looking over his shovel and start talking about su carbs for shovels etc and he says hold on a minute and dissapears and comes back with an su carb and manifold for a panhead oh shit, and then proceeds to give it to me so thats the carb and airfilter sorted for the pan and did a bit of digging around on the web and find the manifold is a bit rare so a good score.

I was super stoked to see how well the Trans fitted around the seat post.

Damm the grinderfest,I have just spent 14 hours straight on this bike but have got the forward controls done,shortened the fork tubes and fitted the internal fork bearing cups (they didn't fit so had to modify) fitted the seat and made the brackets for it,then fitted the tank brackets so it doesn't fall off ,found some pipes to put on for the minute and fitted oil lines will fit a rear tyre tomorrow and then will sort the triumph out tomorrow and clean the shovel Ahh who needs fucking sleep anyway.
