I was looking for a project bike for this winter and found a 1968 Triumph chopper that had caught fire some years ago.

So I picked it up cheep its not so bad but its going to need a lot of work like. Can you get a rebuild kit for a springer? And can I change it to a belt drive? This is not my first build but its the first chopper and the first triumph. Any help would be appreciated.

Heat Weakened Metal
by: Anonymous

Depending on the heat, I would be concerned about structurally weak metal which may cause the frame to bend in unexpected situations.(Like a pothole)
Personally,I would be very worried about this and would probably not use a burnt frame for this reason.As this is not your first build I would assume you already checked this out but, just in case.....
