That looks good! So, what is it and how simple is that project? ;)

So, it really is a case of finding a Street Triple with a busted engine, then slotting in a 1200 Daytona engine and that is it? I can not imagine that there is more to it than that. Changing the wiring loom, changing the engine mounts and so on.


It does look good though. And if they can now slot a 1200 in to make a scrambler...

Yup, it's more or less just that. There's the radiator, oil cooler, air box, ECM together with the wiring loom to deal with and there only two duplex wasted spark coils to fit.

If I've given the game away by replying to this then I'm sure Bixxer will be on my case very soon :augie

No matter how smart you are you can never convince someone stupid that they are stupid.

I got some parts from a very nice chap in Kent a while back. He had a Super III which was uncommon enough but beside it he had a Super IV that he'd built from various bikes and some genuine Super III parts he had lying around, as you do  :m It was lovely but out of respect I did not ask if I could take a photo  :notworthy

Now this is a tidy job, got the Alcon 6 pots too  :love10 as rare as rum and raisin flavoured rocking horse poo. The only thing I think it lacks is spoked wheels

No  :icon_eek: I can't say I'm surprised as it has crossed my mind  :augie

Keep looking  :pimp

Years ago my wet dream was to fit a Sprint 1050 into a Steamer, with the SSSA fitted with a custom wire wheel hub and an underseat custom alloy fuel tank. Battery, expansion tank and all the electronics under an original modified tank. I took it as far as measuring up to see how big the tank capacity could be, I reckoned around 21 litres, so it would be viable. At that time early non ABS 1050 Sprint ST's were selling for under 2k, so taking into account selling off parts and the custom fabrication it might be doable for reasonable money. The looks and comfort of the Steamer with reduced weight, lower CoG, practicality and economy of FI and 135 bhp - stop it  :cp now I think people are starting to realise how good a bike the ST was and the prices have started to go up noticably.

Well, it has turned out that someone at Triumph has been dreaming the same things, releasing a 1200 Street Triple this week. ;)
