thought i would join here because with in the next year i will be in a good place with my life to build my dream bike a 650 triumph bobber .

the way i want to build it is simple 21 in front runner no front fender glide style forks no front brake drag bars peanut tank rigid frame no rake or stretch .
no battery mag straight pipes BSA ribbed rear fender and kick start only .

has to be very tight and compact and narrow i only weight 110 lbs and im 6 ft tall , yeah i know im a string bean lol any ways im looking forward to get to know all of y'all i love the old school style of bikes no billet aluminum for me , lacquer paint only and the less chrome the better .

Welcome Tyler! You're going to paint your bike with lacquer? That's definite old school. (I haven't used lacquer in decades.)
