Triumph 500 bobber project

This is another personal shop project, and this time it is one of mine. This is a junky old Triumph unit 500 bobber that belongs to a friend of mine. He bought it and took it apart with plans to rebuild it. I ended up taking the project over for him, and Pat and I have started to work on it. It really was a terrible custom bike, but we should be able to make something decent out of it. It has a welded on 'bolt-on' hardtail that is our first bit to fix. I need to start cutting off all of the extra stuff on the frame. The only real thing we have done is pick up this vintage oil tank, and fab up brackets to mount it right.
