Wrenching Tuesday: Rex Floyd

Stopped by Rex Floyd's to see what he was up to. As always, he was waist deep in Triumphs, BSAs and Nortons. I was surprised to see a killer looking '64 Triumph Bobber project with what looked to be a 6" stretch and a 2" drop, Trident front end, bolt-on hardtail, powder-coated rims, 21" front wheel, 16" rear wheel and a rear fender off a 1929 Ford A-Model spare tire ring. Engine is a placeholder. Rex's tip of the day: "If you're gonna do a Triumph bobber, get a '70 or older. The bolt-on hardtail is easy and inexpensive to do on those and if you decide you want to go back to stock, the stock rear just bolts back on."

HMT honors Rex as the revered Master of the Motorcycle in our Floyd's Garage shirt.
