Heres one Ive been working on for about a year now... agh actually closer to two years. Maybe it'll be done in the next 12 months who knows..

650 bonnie bottom end with single carb Tiger head built by Mike Cooper of dunedin.
'68 front frame, rear end 4" over with 2" drop from Lowbrow Customs.
18" Borrani alloy with dunlop K81 on the rear 21" Akront on the front with avon speedmaster
Pre unit yokes with late unit forks
F'glass flat tracker tank modified to fit triumph frame
Modified biltwell seat upholstered in leather by Rob Loader of ChCh (formerly longhorn leather before the shop fell down)
Painted myself, done a bit of the fab work and welding myself, had some done by Two Wheels engineering in palmy.

Ditto on the font end, looks great and the forks will look awesome with the rest of the paint job
Real nice lines.
You going to leave the front hub unpainted?
