Todd Muller got his job at Lowbrow Customs the old-fashioned way: he bullied Tyler Malinky, the telephobic owner of the popular parts company into hiring him. You see, Todd is old-school, which is to say the professional Harley-Davidson master mechanic and garage-trained Brit bike aficionado likes to talk, not type. This suits Lowbrow customers just fine, who now have someone to chat with when they call Lowbrow with questions.
This is Todd's story, and he's sticking to it:
This bike started out as a frame I picked up last summer from a friend at the Ohio Valley BSA Owner's Club rally. I found the motor locally on Craigslist. the bike features an original Wassell gas tank, vintage octagon oil tank and ribbed rear fender, all painted with a lace pattern. The front forks are fully rebuilt to stock Triumph specs, with all powdercoated gloss black parts. The handlebars are 7/8-inch Biltwell trackers.
It has a rebuilt 19-inch front wheel With a stainless front rim from Lowbrow, Buchanans stainless spokes and the stock hub The rear wheel is a Triumph Cotton hub laced to a 16-inch Harley rim. Both rims are shod with Avon tires. The engine sports a twin-carburetor head with new Amals and British-made velocity stacks, Boyer electronic ignition and 1-3/4-inch drag pipes with baffles. It also has an original Webco points cover. The seat is handmade leather by Rich Phillips. Headlight is an old '40s Fog King spotlight modified with a Lucas lens. The taillight is TT & Co. This bike is a lot of fun to ride and handles very good for a hardtail.
