Tank On and Lookin' Bitchin'

Offered the tank up for the first time yesterday, still needs sealing before paint but it's looking just about right.

The bars are gonna get a reprieve as they seem to suit that fifties style, which was the plan in the first place. They're stock 1" Trophy bars which allow the fitting of the Triumph throttle, now that's always been a mystery to me, bars were/are normally 1" or 7/8" and that's pretty universal, yet Triumph elected to reduce the bars at the twistgrip end to 15/16" !!!! Just to keep the spares tied up? Dunno but that's all I can think of.

Silencer brackets STILL to be sorted but it's getting close now.
