Few more pics









Few more little bits to do, main one being wiring Rolling Eyes but not too much more. Then will be a case of getting hold of a trailer so i can build that up into a mobile garage for taking the bike to track days etc Cool

Cheers guys, Liking that trike Paulie. Have spoken to Butler at HUC and should hopefully have a frame in early March after the show at Ally Pally for my trike Very Happy

Well the bike is now running! Took it for a trundle round the driveway the other night. Am going to have to move the rear sets as they are not comfy but already working on that. Also just ordered a replacement fuel tap as this one doesn't turn off properly which means a nice pool of petrol under the bike overnight Sad.

Spoke to a local bike garage about a daylight MOT and all i need to add from where she is now is some brake lights, rear reflectors and a number plate so will be making a side mount detachable plate and light holder. Also got a bit bored the other night so started to knock up a little site (in my sig) for the old girl and add a QR tag to the back of the bike ;-)



Also after hearing it running it really does remind me of that crazy frog thing from a few years back Shocked Laughing

Cheers mate. Just waiting on a new fuel tap and exhaust gasket and then i can do a running video.

Looking forward to getting one of the HUC frames. Will basically be the same as the wormburner frame but with an extra wheel at the back Cool Saw he has been having a few issues with his tig. Im in no massive hurry and i know the show is his top priority which is cool. I still need to strip the old trike down yet but my dad wants to see it first and hes not down till next weekend.

Well, needs a bit of tuning up but its alive Cool Running a slightly richer mix than usual as i thought better to as she has been sat for about 6 months. Excuse the quality but it was shot on my phone Embarassed

Great looking build Sparky! If the trike comes out to that standard that's going to be awesome.

Slightly off topic, but one of my favourite biking memories goes back to the early 70's, when as a spotty faced yoof a bunch of us used to go to Hackney speedway every week to watch the Hawks racing. The noise and the frenetic activity of a speedway has to be heard and seen to be appreciated, but what has always stuck in my mind is the fantastic smell of the Castrol R veg-based oil they used.

Very rarely come across it now, but the slightest whiff takes me back 40 years! Crying or Very sad

Nice build. Have a TS myself and have been thinking of doing something similar. First priority having moved house is to get my workshop sorted (it's just a junk store at the moment), but then I'll be getting started. Plenty of inspiration from what you've achieved - thanks. Smile

Paul go to a pre 70 scramble still use castrol R in the 4 strokes and Bellray in the 2 strokes also I too used to go to speedway in the 70's at Ipswich to watch the Witches the sound of a 2 stroke is sweet had a 250lc with micron pipes

Cheers, if i can help at all just shout. Managed to find what bits fit now and where to get them from. Can always take pics & measurements of anything you need.

Bike will probably sit in the garage till summer then look for a new owner so i can put the money towards the trike. Dont actually have a licence so cant ride this one on the road so seems a shame to keep it sitting round for too long Sad

Cheers - much appreciated. It's likely that I will be in touch. I see you are Hampshire based and so am I, so we can't be that far away. First thing I have to do is get my workshop organised and create a space in which I can actually carry out some work. I also noted with interest, your comments about workshop equipment, etc.

I'm sure if you decided to sell your TS in the summer you'd get a reasonable price for it (they go for a lot on eBay nowadays), but it'd be a shame not to ride it wouldn't it? Smile

No worries, always happy for people to pop in for a cuppa and chat bikes Very Happy Im just outside southampton so fairly easy to find. Im working on getting some nice toold for the garage. Will be needing them for the trike project. Welder is next on my list as im going to need it to weld in the engine mounts when i get my frame.

Will be a shame when the TS goes but i would rather see it ridden i guess than just tucked up in a garage.

Fitted a tank protector to it today. Was looking at carbon ones but thought that would be too much so settled for something a little fun Wink
