Today's episode for your enjoyment.
I see a lot of hot rod bikes being ridden with open/exposed primary drives  I don't think I'd like riding with that flapping about my feet.
When I decided to do this bike like that, I thought it would be interesting even though I had no clue  if  a Triumph had such a thing behind that case. I was halfway thru what I have done before I even realized that the Brake pedal was on the Left side !?? That's what I know about Triumphs !
None the less, I try to correct this, a little. I reversed the kit's rear chain guard to get the curve to the front and made a  guard of sorts. (I wouldn't ride this bike either, with a guard like I built).
So, Then, I wanted to see what a paint idea would look like on the rear fender. Dropped it on the dirty floor. Didn't like it any way. I'll have to be more careful with the next paint attempt !

I hate it when that happens. Liking the yellow paint.

Not going with the yellow.
Trying a water marbling technique. 1st try - have too much white. I'll work on that.
Wanted to keep the saddle shape, but narrower, so, I pie cut the seat about 3/8 inch.
I also shortened the front fender about 1/2 inch. Little wanky getting the braces between the forks, So, i'll wait until I have the paint done before putting the forks on the frame. (I have it on backwards on this mock-up shot )

Upholstered the seat w/ halfrounds and built up the back of it to match rear fender contour.
Was pretty stoked to get the water marbling panel paint base  really good this time ( see fender). I am hesitant to mess with it for the main paint color. I'm gonna be majorly miffed when I screw it up !!

Excellent work on the modding, the drive belt cover looks good and the front fender as well. The paint effect is superb, the marbling turned out awesome!

Finally have a little progress to report. I was struggling to align the masking tape for the headlight panel. All of that fiddling broke off one of the spindly brackets I had fashioned, so, I made new ones. Heavy duty !


Meanwhile, lacking a speedometer, I went like we did on my XS 650. Installed a tachometer. I made a tachometer to mount on the handlebars (used a 1/25 scale flathead distributor)


Finished masking the remaining panels, the fenders and the head light , and got them in a coat of body color.
