For Sale

It amazes/scares me how frequently someone builds a nice Triumph bobber and then sells it less than a year later. Bitten by the build it bug and after a new project? Crap economy? Sick of pushing an unreliable bike? I've never really figured it out.

This one was completed about a year ago and is now for sale.

UPDATE - I got nosy and asked:

Hi John, I'm selling the bike because it's a bit too small for me. I'm 6'6" and I used a dropped hardtail on my bike which made it too low to ride it comfortably (my knees are almost in the way of the handlebars). So I decided to sell it to built a bigger bike, like a Shovelhead Harley or something like that.

Cheers, Richard

I could definitely see the size thing. I'm only 6'1" and I would have to put forward pegs on your bike to ride it any distance. This one is very well executed.

Remember the reputed reliability of Triumphs is at least in part due to morons who don't know how to repair anything.
