Absolutely beautiful.

Where did you get the best bang for your buck on weight reduction - the Arrow system? I'd love to shave that much weight off my Thruxton...then again, I could also afford to take an equal amount off myself. :)

The exhaust was the big part. The Airbox removal was big too. The total of discarded parts from the airbox removal weighed about 15 lbs.

single seat/rack...very nice

I like the look of the single seat and the rack. Where did you get these? What did you do to the air box?

Your bike is "very" nice.

Seat is a Triumph accessory, and the airbox removal kit can be found on www.british-customs.com

The airbox is completely removed, along with the charcoal canister, about ten feet of tubing. The removal kit includes a nes pan for the battery, a couple new air filters and a few other items.

Lookin' mean and nasty! 65hp at rear wheel sounds like a winner, too. Nice job. She's got to be a show stopper wherever you ride her, and a real pleasure for you to ride. Much as I love the sound of my traditional Brit twin with 360 crank, I really like the exhaust note of the 270's, especially on a bike that looks as sweet as your ride.

Beautiful Bike: Couple Questions

Wow, that is the best looking Scrambler I've seen! Wondering if it is difficult to remove the plastic tank emblems for painting? Also, looks like the seat rack was also painted Green. Was that difficult? Lastly, where did you find those mirrors?

Thanks!

The seat rack is easily disassembled for painting. I've just had mine re-done in black.
Nice Scram. I love the colour. Do you have the exhaust baffle in or out?

Your exhaust is installed incorrectly.
The pipes as they come off the engine should be switched. The pipe that starts out on the top goes to the lower pipe. Do an image search and you'll see what I mean.

Well they were incorrectly installed on my bike too (by my Triumph dealer)

Can't say that I noticed any ill effects from it. & I had it on for over 10K klms.
