    71 Triumph Tiger Bob/chop

    I started by breaking the bike down and sourcing a earlier front loop and bolt on hard tail. I've heard that the OIF frames aren't the greatest to weld onto due to their thinner walls and wasnt going to take the chance.

    1975 Suzuki T500 IT IS ALIVE! First start video 5/7/11

    Re: 1975 Suzuki T500 Call it whatever you want! I've been following this build with the giddiness of a kid with a new toy. I was looking for a new project and after seeing the way your T500 is turning out i think I've found my new direction. Cant wait too see this one finished.
