Triumph T100C Bobber Build Thread

Hello everyone,

My bike is currently at Slim's Fab Farm having custom fabrication completed. While there, I decided to snap some photos and included them here.

My 1970 T100 gas tank needed a little work done on the forward right mounting hole. I ordered the mounting kit and had Slim weld the studs into place and repair the hole. As you can see the tank sits nicely on the frame, I really like the stock tank. I also temporarily installed the brass risers and Biltwell 1-inch Tracker bars. I cut 1-inch off of both ends to narrow the profile. just a bit.
Slim also custom fabricated rear fender mounts with hidden mounting hardware and I think he totally nailed it on the rear fender mounting. The bike is long, low and narrow and is the exact look I wanted. The last few items that are being fabbed is a brake stay for the front brake, a new axle and two threaded bungs to mount the rear turn signals/brake lights.

Slim also fabricated a custom hidden electrical box under the engine that installs between the frame rails and mounts using stock hardware and locations. I will send photos of that when it is completed prior to my tear down and preparation for paint and powder coat. My plan is to install and Exile Cycles internal throttle and internal frame wiring. I will also route most of my clutch and brake cable inside the bars to clean up the front end. I ordered a 7-inch headlight bucket from Benjie's Cafe Racers and will install a replica Smiths speedometer in the bucket for a really clean look. I will post pictures as soon as I have it mocked up. Slim will fabricate a trick headlight mounting bracket as soon as he receives the bucket.

Hi Irish,

Thank you for the compliments! Your bike is nice as well. I am also thinking of installing a Pazon and a voltage regulator with the built-in capacitor and Zener diode. What sort of problems are you having?

I am also having Slim remove the stock Triumph gas tank filler and will install a solid brass crown gas cap with a steel bung.

Aussie,

That is a nice bike. Just curious, I assume a front fender is required in the land Down Under?
