Thanks for the info. I know alot of people on here are against chopping them up. That wasn't my plan though. I have already been looking at the bolt on hardtails. I have the website with all of the manuals and also ordered a couple of books
1."Triumph 650 and 750 2-Valve Twins Owners Workshop Manual, No. 122: '63-'83"
2. "Building Budget Brits: A Practical Guide for Refurbishing BSA and Triumph Unit Twins (Tech Series)"
I have also went to the website that you referred to. Being new to the triumph build I am not sure what all is required for the bolt on frames. I dont know what extension 4"/6" or what drop would look good. Actuallly I don't know even know what the benefits or disadvantages of the drops are. I wanted to try and get a 650 engine if possible. I would also like to put the mini apes on the bobber..are there any considerations frame wise for this? I really like the look of the one you posted. That is a nice ride. At the moment I am leaning towards the all black with a touch of red. I am also a maintenance test pilot for the Apache...we use an IETM.which is basically an electronic manual. Reading some of the manuals I downloaded they all look pretty simple and self explanatory similar to what we use. Thanks again.
