Lefty Lucy is her name, I built this jewel in the spring of 2008. It is not a "restoration" in fact Triumph purists would denounce it as an abomination, because it is custom fabricated from the ground up, with few parts, besides the motor and rear hub that actually came from the donor bike. I sold it on e-bay this fall.
Check out the antique bottle opener on the front of the licence plate bracket
I built in a sight glass to the oil tank to help me keep an eye on the oil level
I fabed the electrics box to hold the battery (held in by a tiny wrench), ignition switch, coil, regulator, and electronic ignition unit. ALL wiring was soldered and heat-shrinked, then run inside the frame tubing for a super-clean look.
Since I stretched the rear section of the frame six inches, I fabricated this chain tensioner to prevent the chain from chewing the finish off of the frame tubing. I made the arm from a forged 7/8" Craftsman wrench handle for durability. The rest of the brackets are made from cold-rolled 14 gauge steel.
