Does anyone know where we can get a set of the heavy made fiberglass retro side covers? I had a great set that I bought from the crook Marshall (only decent thing I got from him) several years ago. The ones I have found lately are thin plastic. The old ones were about 1/4" thick fiberglass.

I think these ones at lowbrow are the ones you want. You might want to send them an email to make sure.

BigBobb,
You could go more retro with earlier tank badges?


The bolt holes should be the same.

Was wondering about the fenders too....

Also, is that the 8-valve, T140W head on that bike?

Hi all thanks for the feedback and compliments.

Where to start? It's a real mongrel.

Good idea on the badges thanks, and I'll be fitting knee pads too.

The swingarm is from a Honda CBR600, cut, narrowed and fitted with twin shock mounts. The fenders are Honda CB250RS front (as it the whole front end) and universal Triumph/BSA rear.

The top end is Nourish/Weslake. This is the full spec:

T140 Bonneville with hybrid Nourish/Weslake 850cc 8 valve top end. NRE full race cams, lightened and polished rocker gear. Carillo rods, Omega pistons with total seal rings. Single stage nitrous oxide injection (not fitted in photo). Triumph 5 speed with left to right shift conversion. Splined mainshaft and hub. SRM clutch pressure plate with piggyback 4 finger lock-up plate. PSP Hydraulic 4 spring clutch and Surflex plates, triplex primary drive. 36mm AMAL MkII Smoothbore carbs.

1975 oil in frame T140V with cut and shut CBR600 swinging arm, re-bearinged for T140 spindle and fitted with FJ600 adjusters. Strengthened swinging arm mounts. Honda CB250RS forks, yokes and wheel. Suzuki DR650 rear wheel complete, Bandit 600 master cylinder and lever. Modified brake and caliper mounts.

One off loom to include NOS wiring. Standard alternator with SPARX regulator/rectifier. Boyer Micropower digital ignition with DYNA coil & Taylor leads.. T120 headlight and switchgear.

Speed trapped 142 mph Elvington 2009

Thanks again

Bob
