Hey Guys. I'm fairly new on this site but have been lurking for a while. I recently picked up this 1968 T100R for a steal, in my opinion. It is all original as far as i can tell and has only a very small ding in the tank. It came with all the manuals and clear title. I idea is to clean it up to show room condition and sell it on if i can part with it at the end of the build. I'll keep adding photo's of my progress.

A few more. The first thing will be to strip the entire bike down. Look for any worn/missing parts that i cant see. I didn't mention but the bike was sitting in the fellas garage for the past 17years, untouched. All the fluids were drained and the tank was removed and stored in doors. Its very clean inside the gas tank. I took apart one of the carbs for a look and it looks pretty tidy. A soak in carb cleaner and some new gaskets should do the trick. I'm going to update the ignition with a Boyer from another Triumph sitting here that's being upgraded to a magneto.
