69 Triumph, Building on a Kraft\Tech Softail frame
For some people there's therapy - for the rest of us there's choppers!
A friend will bail you out of jail, a true friend will be sitting next to you saying "Holy shit, that was fun!"
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body,but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -- "WOW-- What a Ride!"

The 55 is used to be a 4 door, now a 2 door. The doors are actualy part front and rear to go over the wheel well in the back. 32'' cut from the middle and no more back seat. That motor is the 3rd 312 Y Block bored 90 over,spitfire cam and Offenhauser heads, some times it is just so hard to keep from putting my foot through the floor,, it almost needs a wheelie bar.. hahaha. So now it is so short and looks like a metropolitan on steroids.LOL
I think I will put a 360 and a automatic in it next, I have taken off the Ford logos so I will make a Mord logo once it has Mopar. ;)
Dennis Carpenter and Ford Parts in New York helped me get all the goodies that it has needed if you are looking for the best price and good parts. Happy Building!
cheers brother. The bike was originally built by a very cool cat named Vince. Never seen him on any message boards...kinda go's his own way which is cool. I've merely turned some spanners, fettled her, some minor welding and changed thee bars and risers. currently enjoying riding the piss outta her.
