well .. I don't post too much so i thought id contribute something now that im about to start back up on my bastard machine so i guest the time has come to start a little thread for this pile of parts.. this has been a year long project and its not looking like its going to end in the near future ( as if any of them really ever end ) so here's a little walk through the time line -

Picked her up as this -

all kinds of hidden demons there ...

stage one - ( after a fire but before the FIRST seize... yea thats right first )

then this happened -

Decided to go a little different direction with it ...

and then there was a soft seize ....

and then i made a pretty crack on one of the base cylinder fins .. good times .( never work on your machine while your phone beeps angry text messages from the prettier half it just ends in heartache.. and im referring to that of cracking your nice pretty cylinder fins... ) . camera is no more now , gonna have to try and score one for some updated pics started to vere back towards the z bar direction again, one piston has a pretty little vavle kiss on it and a nice little gouge going past all the rings hopefully will have these cylinders mic'ed soon so i can start the hunt for the correct oversize should have her back to an " attempt to fire " state soon ,
anyhow thats the hunk o' junk I've taken to just referring to as the Whore ... or filthy whore.. greedy whore.. hell Lazy Whore.. i could go on .. i think there is another thread about that bizness though

cheers

^^^^^^ haha yea very true indeed .. lots o' pain n persistence in there t hats for sure workin on the patience part ,

yea i think im gonna call it done after its drivable ( reliably - or as reliable as a 30+year old machine will be ) get a fender/ rear strut slapped on maybe switch out for an actual triumph tank still not sure on that one and make a bit of an adjustment to the exhaust and of course some clean up here and there , then it'll be time to start on the T120r thats been staring at me since last dec.

hoping to score a cheapo digital camera here soon , ill post some updated pics when i can get em

cheers
