I went Dr Suess on it "one bike two bike, black bike blue bike". For those of you keeping track, the plastidip is gone and the bike is blue again.

I did the BC flat gauge bracket with the ignition relo, the thermos mod, (that's right, thermos cups replaced the ass ugly speedo and tach cups) new headlight brackets and the recitifier relo. I also lost the flyscreen and (not sure about this yet)front fender. I'm not really diggin where I located front signals and still have to sort out the idiot lights, been thinking about this http://jokermachine.com/products/tri...bar-clamp.html (http://jokermachine.com/products/triumph/led-handlebar-clamp.html)

I like the dash and key relo. The thermos caps are cool. Not sure about their color...
I like the blue better than the dip. I've always thought your bike was really sharp. If I had seen it before I bought my sporty, I might have a thruxton in British racing green.
Looks cool without the fender, but it will suck in the rain.

Thanks guys, I never get tired of modding this bike. Yeah Greg, I'm not sure about the color of the clock cups, although they don't stand out quite as much in person as they do in the pics. I'm pretty sure I'll be putting the front fender back on.

I love the bike looks. It's such a vintage racing feel with the bike. I love it.
