Re: From a workshop in rural Norfolk...

Good idea about keeping some paint around for touch in.. Here's a couple of shots showing the fuel filler, roll bar and seat belt mountings. Fuel-Hose.jpg Seat-Belts.jpg Moving the fuel filler to the fixed bodywork involved more work than I'd thought. It had to go in this position otherwise the conv...

Re: From a workshop in rural Norfolk...

Final top coat today which makes 2 coats of primer, 1 coat undercoat and 3 top coats - all rubbed down and applied by hand. Low tech but I'm fairly happy with the result, like anything you do yourself you tend to focus on the bits that are not quite 100% rather than looking at it overall. Fluorescen...

Re: From a workshop in rural Norfolk...

With the body glued on and the current warm temperatures I've started the process of painting the Triking in my home workshop. As with my previous Triking I'm going to paint it by hand, or more accurately, apply the paint with a small foam roller and then use a high quality paint brush to "tip off"....

Re: Build progress

Good to see you're almost on the road with the Triking Tony. I used plenty of masking tape when I did mine, hardest job was getting the right amount of sealant on the flange - enough to avoid air pockets but not too much so it squidges out everywhere - it's awkward to clean off any excess once the s...

Re: From a workshop in rural Norfolk...

Thanks Tony ! Two big milestones this week; starting the engine and on it's own wheels at last... I knew the engine basically worked ok as I'd run it and even ridden the donor bike a little after buying it, but that was almost 18 months ago. I'd reused the engine wiring harness which is mostly simpl...
