2012 Triumph America Project

After a year of working on my Triumph "Lady Luck" it finally completed and I may say, I am very pleased with the results.

sweet!

I'm also interested in seeing the front mods as wel... if you have the time.

And after all this work, I think you deserve to lose the fork reflectors... (unless you absolutely want to keep them for some obscure reason!)

More pics to come, for some reason they are not appearing. For those being bullies on the forum, just because i'm a newbie or have not got a hang of things so fast. Keep your hands up at all times, those who are the the strongest don't were a crown.

The front reflectors were removed during the summer and there wasn't anything done to the front fender. The fender was removed and placed on backwards. the back of the tire is hugged more and the front looks bobbed as the rear.

Lighten up, no bullies just a little joking. Just hit back. Good to see you're building the bike you want. Keep us posted with updated pics.

Your pic MUST reside somewhere on the internet... not on your computer. So, you first must upload your pics to a site such as photobucket.com. After that, follow the instructions in this thread.

If you still need help we can help. Once you got it, you'll find it quite easy.

I really dig the tail light, and it's an overall great looking bike!

The tail light is made by Kevin from Lowbrow customs and the brass carb covers are custom made in China. I found them on ebay by accident. I originally was going to get them from British customs.

I actually used the front indicator lights from your bike for rear indicator lights. I removed the passenger pegs and used the existing holes to place the lights. I powder coated them for a cleaner look.
