    The 2V is easy to work on and very reliable. I know of several people who have over 50k on theirs - mine will soon pass that mark. And then there's Phil Boncer's '93 M900......

    This hit page 3 in OT? Unacceptable.

    I've been wanting to switch up from the Ducati a little. Would it be stupid to own two 600-class sport standards?

    There's so much right about modern era Triumph triples.

    I made the mistake of letting my Buell Ulysses out of my hands a couple of years ago and now I can't figure out how to convince my wife that motorcycles may eventually come back. She's convinced that the Buell was the last one.

    Ill revive this old thread. I have found the Monster I was looking for, a low miles S2R that's been really taken care of.

    This borders on a classified ad so if a mod strikes me down I understand. Ill deliver my Buell anywhere in the US for $1200 and a ticket for a train ride home. I'm serious. That or im riding to the first pawn shop in San Diego I find and flying home.

    I prefer the TZ 750 four cylinder two stroke that Kenny Roberts snr raced all those years ago to win the AMA flat track champs. Scary shit.

    And then there's everything else.

    That zrx is a zrx in name only. Thing goes 170 hp/100 ft-lbs on a completely revised chassis/superbike suspension. Check out the vids, great series.

    You aren't getting those power numbers without some extensive engine mods either. Stock is already pretty detuned. My 1100 is roughly 115/65 with just jets/pod filters and pipe. You can get another good healthy bump using the (correct) zx11 cams and cdi box. It makes nice intake sounds. I'd venture a guess that the one in he video is pretty wheelie prone.

    Well, it ain't a bike frame but it's the only frame I had built for me. Featherbed frame with mods for a modern Hinckley 865cc and modern size shoes.

    4130 frame with eccentric head tube for rake adjustment
    2009 Triumph Bonnie frame with hotter cams
    Showa 43mm USD fork with Racetech springs and valves
    Boxed swingarm for a 160 profile tire
    Ohlins shocks
    Carrozzerria wheels
    Brembo dual 320mm brakes
    Polished aluminum Manx tank and seat
    Stainless high pipes
    Sato rearsets
    Woodcraft clipons
    Etc
    Etc

    Still much much to do and will have to work time in on it in between customer builds but the gameplan is to have it on the road this late Spring.

    RIP Massimo Tamburini. This guy was a true artist. When I was looking for a motorcycle, nothing grabbed me like the Brutale and I still enjoy it as much as the day I brought it home.

    Damn- that sucks. Such a loss for the motorcycle world. I was able to check out a Ducati Supermono in person in '93 (I have a photo somewhere.) It's still one of the most beautiful bikes I've ever seen. The single cylinder engine was a work of art.

    Tim - you just signed up to post more pics as you get that project completed. Are you going to paint or polish that tank?

    Way way too much time went into polishing that tank and seat to paint it. Etching in a Triton logo on the tank and calling it good. Front fender is off to the hydro-dippers for a brushed aluminum finish. Once I am done with the frame (about 20 more little brackets and mounts that need welded on to house most of the electronics) I am sending it, the swingarm, triple trees and a couple assorted bits to the powdercoaters for gloss black.

    Then I get to build the motorcycle a second time. Hauling this 160 pound lump in and out of the frame gets a little tedious.
