Tim, Hi. I've been following your blog for a couple of months now, and thought you might like to see my Trumpet..Based loosely on a TT special. Still a couple of mods to do. Older style seat, Monza cap, Re-jet the carbs and K&N filters. Check out Bob Farnham tuning, Hope it's up your street. Really dig those high rise pipes on the JoMoCo insert.
Keep it upright.
Had a few readers wives.... Sorry readers bike emails....
Your blog and your bike are very nice!
I send you photos of my former Bonnie I sold two years ago to buy a Thunderbird Sport.
It was a green model of 2001 that I have turned gray scrambler style 70's when Triumph Scrambler still there!
Do you like?
I wish it were published on your blog
I'll give you a link to a reference site for the Italian Bonneville: bandabonnisti.it, which I founded years ago ...
Hello and thanks
Some may have noticed that the Hammarhead Jack Pine Scrambler has no oil cooler! - This being a bit of a revelation for many of us, I emailed James at Hammarhead.
The oil cooler was the crux of this build. Initially I was committed to a minimal cooler using a Spurgin heat exchanger but could not achieve the lean effect I wanted. My brother’s encouragement (at times dangerous but always fun) pushed me to do the final build without it. Before I pulled the trigger, I talked with Bill Himmelsbach (http://www.eurosports.net/staff.asp) about his scrambler builds. Bill knows these bikes inside and out and assured me that the oil cooler loop is independent from the lubrication circuit and that capping the feed does not stress the pump. He runs a big bore kit and mild cams without a cooler. After 3000 miles (including a track day and a flogging by the moto journalist Alan Cathcart), Bill disassembled the engine and saw no unusual wear. Furthermore, Bill said there was no color change around the piston wrist pin, an area that turns a telltale gold tint with overheating. That said, I offer the Spurgin cooler set-up as a no cost option. I do not run one on the development mule, but plan to install it when the bike is prepared for my Delhi to Leh-Ladakh ride next spring.
Really interested in doing this to my own scram, but Im going to wait and see how their bike does first
Picked up the new car on Wednesday, and not surprising to those that know me... I went very RETRO. Why not a mini some may ask!?! Well... even though the Mini is made in England it's about as English as Sour krout!
Manned it up a little by going for the optional metallic black with a black and grey interior.
Now that I have a car that doesn't need constant attention, repairs and care, I can focus on the bike again!
