From Sydney, Australia: This is my 1973 Triumph Tiger with hardtailed OIF frame. It was my daily rider for about a year before I had the hard tail welded on. The front was already raked with about 2" over forks but I thought the bike looked wrong, hence the 6" stretch and 2" drop.


It runs a 1973 650 with a hunt magneto, 5 speed box, 16" rear. I'm not sure whether use the 2 into 1 or the original headers with hot dogs. It seemed to run better with the hot dogs than the 2 into 1.

This project has been stalled for about a year since I had a 60mph bike accident that destroyed my shoulder but hope to start it again soon.
