Another pre-unit build...

I've had this bike in my head for a while, and I've finally started transforming all those parts on the shelf into a bike. Eventually, it's getting a dual carb alloy T100 motor (currenly en route from Florida), a Triumph factory spool front hub, alloy rear fender, fork covers, and obviously a freshly rebuilt gearbox. These Akronts with the drag slick and ribbed Dunlop are eventually going on a swingarm pre-unit dragster, but for now they look good on this bike. The one gallon tank may be temporary too, because I'm running dual carbs and there's limited clearance. The gas tank is off a 1957-1959 T100/RR dirt track racer and is ultra rare (less than 200 made) The angled petcocks and blue/ivory paint make it different from the other Tri-Cor accessory tanks.
