As I'm looking over these custom 'Birds, I keep noticing the radiator. I like the style of the T-Bird overall, even out of the box, as they say, but the one thing that has always rubbed me wrong is the huge radiator.

I'm sure there are many excellent reasons why Triumph went with such a large one, and perhaps with such prominent placement to boot, but I have to wonder why they didn't put the radiator between the frame rails, ala Honda's more recent cruisers (the Fury, for example). IMHO that is the sore spot in my eyes that some customizer ought to address. Does anyone know enough about radiators to comment on this?
