  2. Hello. absolutely beautiful bike. Is that a whole new custom frame or is it original front and after market hardtail. thanks

  3. sounds like the voice of god telling him to prime it up a few more times… it does start at 1:10 though…

    Holy shit! Your garage looks just like mine…except for the fancy cars, car lift, cool bike, exspensive pavers.

    Its leaking from the float bowl, you've just tickled the carb, it will piss fuel, thats what it does. Best to drain carb if not started for a while , Amals turn fuel green here in the UK, usually start easy after. Nice bobber, and nice Merc on the ramp.

    but when it's the first start after 6-8 months, it's normal that a bike takes a moment to start.

  8. Ethanol gasoline eating away at the O-rings? That would be my guess.
    Better swap out the rubber bits with modern replacements that can withstand the vile ethanol.

    a triumph should start first kick.
