Default Triumph Daytona 955i Streetfighter Build

A few weeks ago I picked up a 1999 Triumph Daytona 955i. It's been very well maintained mechanically, but the was stolen from the previous owner, and when he got it back, it had been spray painted flat black.

I debated on and off what I was going to do with it, and have decided to make it a streetfighter. I want to give a big thanks to Josh with Pipe Dreams for all the help and advice, and can't wait to get parts to him for paint!

Here's the bike the day it came home.





Please excuse my messy garage in the second pic.


Here's how it sits after two evenings of work. I need to change plugs and brake fluid. The coolant has been done recently, and I changed the oil a few days ago.



My next step is to start sanding the damn spraypaint off the headlight fairing, front fender, tank, tank cover, and the tail, and them get them off to Josh to work his magic!

Along the way, I need to get new turn signals, fix the speedometer, thermal wrap the header, and I also plan on adding a shorty down turn pipe off the header so I can really show off the single side swing arm. Here's a picture of what I would roughly like to end up with. I'm undecided on color right now. What do you guys think?

Went and got her tagged and registered. It's chilly out there!

So my front fairing broke on me last week as I was riding. It scared the shit out of me, but luckily both me and the bike are fine. Since I now need to do more work to the Daytona, I did the only logical thing and bought a Sprint ST as well...
