BlackBob gets Fossed 2

I collected BlackBob from Richi's workshop this morning, To say I'm chuffed is an understatement!!!

The new hi level stainless pipes are a work of art, they bend nicely out of the cylinder head then curve nicely around the Morgo cylinders kicking up and round the primary cover then finish in a pair of staggered hand crafted stainless meggas .............. cant wait to hear it fired up! But I will have to wait, the Hunt magneto is giving grief and I havent had a chance to get the cam profile sorted out yet, I have ordered a new magneto complete with a Goodson style alloy cover from Tyler at Lowbrow Customs but he is at Bonneville this week.

Richi also sorted out a few other jobs while the bike was in his workshop, New rear engine plates in stainless with rhe LH one carrying a roller chain tensioner behind it. The standard Triumph footpeg irons have been Fossed too, they now have a simple but clever hinge arangement built in so I can get round corners without the pegs digging in.
