Stock Triumph frame is 45 pounds with no swing armquote:
thats sweet! where'd you find it?
Lets try this again. Please place the word "you" between seeing and guys.quote:
Hello Ray and Jen,
The frame is a 1965 Norton Featherbed, and will have a 806cc or a 750cc Triumph motor put in by July. I haven't decided on which motor yet but I'm looking forward to racing it in the Open GP class.
It was really cool seeing guys that day, even though Jen was a little under the weather. Your bike looks different everytime I see it, and I do like the flames. Have you, your bike, or Jen been in any more magazines lately?
Joe, no offense but Rays wife is better advertising than you are.
thats not bad, but I was joking about it being light (for a racebike there ain't much on it, get it)quote: Stock Triumph frame is 45 pounds with no swing arm
Stock Oil n' Frame is 44 pounds with no swing arm
Feather bed was 49 pounds with swing arm and shocks. Not bad, although always hoping for lighter. Seems to be real light if handling is figured in to the package deal.
Thats funny that they acted like that after they put your shit in the mag and gave you credit in the article. Its not the same mag it used to be anyway. Keep ride'n it like hell, it always makes me feel better. I'm hoping to have new tyres on my 64 along with the original carb by the end of this week, I'm feeling a little bit hipocritical about having a Mikuni on there.quote:
Naw, no more magazines for us. That experience was just way too painful, dealing with those morons from the magazine and all the shit we had to put up with just to get a couple of copies and a t-shirt. After I told a bunch of people how poorly they had treated us, never delivering what they promised without so much bitching, then the editor started insulting Jen and my bike, saying she looks like a horse and the bike is the ugliest thing he has ever seen. We don't bother with those people anymore. Thanks for the compliments on the flames, did it myself in the backyard with some masking tape and a couple of rattle cans of Krylon. Going to work on putting the springer front end on if I can ever save up some money to get the front wheel from hutch, he says it is like $250 bucks. Bike is leaking like a mutherfucker, but I can't really complain cause it sat upside down in a milk crate for almost a year and a half. You can't expect seals to hold up being abused like that. I just ride it like hell every now and again, and don't worry about the oil.
