    Well the parts have started arriving and the snow has started flying. Planning on some more mods this winter. Thanks to ishrub for the standard rails and footboards. Also bought fiberglass fenders, new license plate bracket, and led turn signals. Am always in a hurry to install new parts, but really need to take my time, might make more changes along the way.

    A few of us are using this instead so we can toe the back of the platform in the turns.

    Make sure your boards are fitted with feelers. Mine came without them. Not that I use them but you might. They were not easy to find.

    Yeah, I saw that. After I get the floorboard fitted planning on doing some measuring, see what shifter will work best. Have seen couple different ones on eBay.

    EBay store triumph custom parts. He is in the u.k. Has a lot of stuff, some different styles of rear fenders. I think the finish looks really good should match the tank well.

    Yes, it was over 60 on Saturday, snowed Monday, and was 8 degrees this morning. Still hoping to get some more fall riding in, just depends on the weather.

    I tried this set up. In fact Rick was kind enough to have one sent to me
    Genuine Triumph part. Any I switched back as the leverage did not feel the same as shifting with the OEM. It also could be I have darnnear 100,000 miles on the heal toe shifter and have groan used to it. As for the feelers I ground Rick's for him (effects like he is fast in the curves :) ) standard peg feelers fit the boards also and are a little beefier. Going for some titanium ones next year but first my 13 year old radiator hose finally needs changing good thing winter is her!!!
