Hello-
I’m starting with:
  • 1969 T 100-C mainframe
  • Lowbro Customs Triumph Unit 500 c.c. Bolt-On Hardtail Rear Frame Section
  • 1989 Suzuki Intruder 750 Forks
I need to get the head tube bearings sorted but the front end looks like a good match. I’ll be using an intruder spoked front wheel.
Ie restored a couple of old Austin Healeys but this is my first bike build.

It might just be the photo but your stem length on the triples seems quite long. If you haven't resolved the neck bearing situation, you might check with Lowbrow. I don't know what conversions they have but I got a set of tapered races and bearings to fit a HD stem from them. They pressed right in like originals and also the stem length on the narrowglide triples was just about perfect for my 69 650. I'm assuming your fork tubes are likely 39mm so just about any Sportster set from, say 1989-2006, should accommodate them, and maybe even later. Just a thought if you're still in the resolution process there.
