Bolt-On Hardtail for Old Triumphs

acmetriumph1acmetriumph2acmetriumph3Because old Triumphs from the era 1963 to the 70’s are a popular choice for customization, why not keep the original frame and turn it into a cool rigid. This hardtail section doesn’t need any cutting or welding. It’s a 1″ O.D. DOM steel tubing bolt-on piece with laser cut mounting brackets and axle plates from 3/8″ thick plate steel. It’s available in 0″, 3″ or 5″ stretch. Available in raw finish for your paint can if you go “root” ($165), or in stainless steel (add $100) or in polished stainless steel (add $200.) At Acme Choppers.

    Sharkey – spot on. In fact the ACME CHOPPERS website shows remarkably few examples of what bikes look like with their frames and bolt-on.., rather bizarre…

    Maybe the purpose was not more than to show a rigid Triumph built by ACME.

    Sorry, but “old hardtails” are not for us “old riders”.

    The one on the bike looks like a Corbin hard tail , built through the ‘ 70 s @ Corbin Gentry.
