i'm doing some work on one of my friend's Triumphs. This bike used to be another friends, before trading hands a few times. Its a stock front loop, +6 Hardtail, 18/19 wheel combo, etc. The motor was locked up when i got it, and he brought an extra complete bottom end with it. So i've spent the last couple days getting both cases torn down and inspected. Plans are for a basic motor rebuild, mount sporty tank, oil tank, lights and rear fender. This is gonna be a real basic build, but i think it will look nice.

This is what it looked like when it came in

I have since gotten the timing chest buttoned up and got the transmission, gearbox and kicker all re-assembled last night. Should get the primary side take care of tonight, and finish off my late model breather conversion. Then i can slide her in the frame.

Got some more work done on the Quickee, got an electrics/battery box sorted out, and mounted, which meant i could finish cleaning up the frame and paint it. Pics aren't the best, but its raining and i was in a hurry. Dude is on a budget so paint is just Duplicolor Red Anodize, with some Fire Red lines here and there.

i really like the frame colour. the stripes look great too, but that colour combo on the tins makes me feel woozy most of the time.

nice looking! cut some meat off that seat though... get some shape in there!

either way, i'd ride it
