Parts replaced:  sludge tube completely cleaned out ,crankshaft bearings in both cases , lower rod bearings {still stock size} upper rod piston pin bushings ,  .040 over pistons  fresh bore job correctly crosshatched with hastings rings, complete valve job,  re-surfaced tappets, transmission original parts all in good condition new bearings for layshaft and mainshaft, inner trans cover new bearings,  shifts fine,  primary components were all in good shape new final drive sprocket, all seals throughout.

Tri-Spark electronic ignition { strobe timed} new lucas style 6 V coils,original Webco points cover , Clay Cobb sidedraft intake manifold with 32 MM Mikuni carb, L C Fab carb top, K&N air filter. 60s C model high left exhaust pipes with no baffles,  Anti-Gravity 4 cell lithium battery,  3 position key switch ,  new kicker and shifter levers , K&N crankcase breather filter,  major engine components have been vaporblasted, a common cleaning practice used more in England than in  the US including the crankcases , inner trans  cover, cylinder head and rocker boxes,  all of the vaporblasted parts were thoroughly washed several times before starting the engine re-build. I do not believe in glass beading aluminum  engine parts as it leaves a less than desirable finish and is hard on the aluminum , with vaporblasting it leaves a very nice finish that is resistant to staining . The motor has approximately 300 miles on it since being built.      Chassis : stock front frame section with a 2” stretch no drop David Bird looped hardtail, rebuilt Triumph front forks with all new bushings, springs, seal holders and seals , powdercoated lower legs and triple trees, the top tree is from a pre-unit with no fork lock  and built in 1” risers, Biltwell tracker bars ,  Halogen headlight , Barnett levers , all new cables ,  front wheel has the smaller dual leading shoe hub with re-plated stock spokes, british made chrome rim Dunlop K-70 3.25 19” tire , stock rear hub with sealed bearings re-plated spokes and stainless rim Dunlop K-70 4.00 18” tire , new british made brake plate new brake shoes and springs, new 530 drive chain , all frame and frame components powdercaoted gloss black  including footpeg mounts, brake pedal, rear brake stay,  new sidestand, handmade battery box , Gasbox 18” rear fender , Biltwell  mako  LED taillight, hand made rear fender struts,  bates style seat ,  T C Brothers axle mount license plate holder, the gas tank is a vintage Tri-Cor accessory  tank that was made for the  for pre-unit racing  models, the oil tank is from a Norton, all of the  painted parts were painted with house of colors mini-flake blue and silver for that 70s racing look .                               This bike is fun to ride and will draw attention wherever it goes. As with any  custom built motorcycle it may need periodic attention for maintanence purposes  and any issues that may arrive due to be a new build . It has been tuned on a dynamometer and is running very well it will start first kick very easily most of the time . I do have a printout from the dyno run  .  I do not feel that this would be the best bike for long trips or extended freeway riding  if that is what you are looking for this may not be for you.  I do not  have the time or want to have to crate this bike for shipping but I will assist any shipper of your choosing in any way I can. This bike is being sold as-is where is no warranty expressed or implied. If you do not have any feedback please contact me before bidding. If you do not your bids may be cancelled.  If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask.  Thanks for looking and happy bidding.  To see a short video of the bike on the dyno go to youtube and enter 1970 Triumph bobber dyno run  in the search bar    Ignore the back wheel hop it has been re-trued and is fine now

Glen Richards back with Embassy Racing

Wed, 27 Oct 2010 00:00:00 -0700

One of the unsung heroes of the BSB paddock over the past few seasons, has to be 2010 Superstock 1000 runner up Glen Richards. A nasty tumble in at the Brands Hatch opener lead to four DNFs, but once back on track he pushed the dominant BMWs hard, finishing on the podium eight times. While many were trading their grannies to fund new S1000RRs, Richards kept the faith and rode the wheels off his Padgett’s Honda Fireblade.
