Made a start on the t110 today. It all came apart pretty easy which is amazing considering its the oldest bike i have worked on and had the least number of fucked nuts and bolts even if every second nut was in-between spanner sizes.
Thanks to Stan for another sweet sew up job. The seat sits nice and snug with the tail light and fender I made up. Next on the list is to lower the front with some spacers and find a new tank that fits with minimum effort.
Front spool and no front brake on the triumph maybe?
Took about an inche out of the venter and off each end. They sit really nice now and road tested this morning on the way to work with success avoiding death splittin lanes all the way.
Started making this a week or so ago. Made one version up i fidnt like so cut it up and tried another of which im happy with. I think im going to ad a gusset inbetween the bar an flat plate for extra strength and some short grub screws turned up today which will replace that bolt to hold it in place.
Sven came round the other night and i showed him how to use the lathe. We made some 3 ” spacers to lower his forks. The bore came out really rough. Im guess its down to cutting angle and poor quality tools but we got there in the end. Would have been a lot quicker with the right size drill bit.
