happy new year!

many thanks to all the visitors that visited this blog!
all the best for the new year and I wish for everybody some cool builds and trips in 2011!

flat/board track style HD-matchless

i'm working on my triumph at the garage of my good friend Dirty Harry.
he is currently busy with a crazy bike! engine is build by a dutch guy named Cees Fick. he has build the engine in the 70/80's for racing purposes. cilinder and topend are matchless, bottom is HD wla Liberator. the engine alone is really nice and one of a kind!
Harry bought this engine some time back and he is doing an amazing job to make this bike a true winner! a lot of thinking went into this build.
the photo's don't do the bike justice, in real life it is really cool.
Harry is building this bike to go to the salt lakes in know where!

other parts.....

Some nice christmas presents!

bought a light bracket for my front fork
and a nice tail light.

and found a cheap frisco wassel gastank


With some great advice from mr. chopper Tjebbe (
started polishing...... I love it!!!

back than there were some killer painters/artists!!

If anyone has some pictures or other related stuff with respect to this paintjob, please let me know!
some background information:A guy in Holland got a triumph bike from a USA family member. the gastank en fenders were on this 63 triumph. an other guy bought this bike and is restoring the bike back to original. he doesn't like the chopper stuff....! I can say there are the best parts that I could ever find! sometimes dreamed about finding this original stuff.

therefor I'm looking for a 60's triumph to got this stuff on a bike and on the road. I prefer a running swingarm triumph with a good engine.
