Man, that is a beautiful Scrambler! Like it's 1967 all over again - and I could fail algebra in high school one more time!!! Oooh yeah!

I copied this into the main forum because it was generating quite a lot of interest - and rightly so - it looks great.

Welcome to the forum, perhaps you can tell us a bit about what you have done here?

emercado,
I sent you a private message with some questions because you were on the photo site. Look for the pm in the upper right of the page. You can answer with a post here. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who wants to know. Thanks.

Great looking scrambler. First Triumph I ever saw was a scrambler. My 4th grade teacher's boyfriend had one.

Details

The Scrambler started life as 07 Green/Silver I purchased used. Booneville fenders front and rear, lower legs swapped, Norman Hyde western bars, Karoo tires, Hagon, Works, currently working on the seat should be finished in a week.
Thanks again for all the interest. Steve

Just realized one thing that makes this bike stand out, in my view - it does not have the stock mirrors interfering with the lines [in fact, I don't see any mirrors]. No offence to the stock mirror fans, but I don't like 'em.

I agree about the mirrors my intention is to use a 4 inch round mounted to the bar itself. The bike is not complete yet I'm still working on a seat and will post additional photos soon.

Four inch, big mirror. I used a Mirrycycle bike mirror - like this


but modified to this


They are cheap, anywhere from 13 to 20 bucks, and work extremely well.

Top notch, top notch!!!

I am a HUGE McQueen geek, that bike is stellar. Had thoughts of something similar once. Have you thought about doing the leather side covers and a handle bar brace with wrenches strapped? Oh and the mini air tank connected to the frame. Just like the ISDT bike. I geeked out seeing yours so much.

Hey FYI,
Triumph released new Steve McQueen T-Shirts a few weeks ago. They are red sleeved with a white trunk and Steve is jumping his #278 Scrambler on the front.

I saw them at my dealer and they are amazing. They also have new 50th anniversary Bonnie Shirts.
