Bringing this one home in a few days. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions as I go along.

I do have the seat pan. PO's dogs ate the seat. I've already got the carbs and have rebuilt them (correctly, I hope!). The carbs seemed more complicated than on my 750Four. Hasn't run in over 10 years sitting in the PO's yard. LOTS of rust and dirt and stuff. PO says it needs rings, but I may just try to clean it up and see if it'll run first.

GPZ --

the trident with rear disc has a chrome cover.

I have a T140E with underslung disc and would like to fit a cover but can't find one that fits. The S steel pipe that's part of the caliper fouls the cover so I'm hacking bits off the cover and offering it up. I'd get it rechromed once it fits (and tap holes in the bolts)

You don't know if the Trident caliper is the same do you?
mine is P/N 37-4263

The other option is to make a stainless hose that does away with the S pipe.

Medic - Nice '76 with what looks like a Jardine header. I would make sure the carbs are jetted on the rich side.

DaveM- I don't know about the part #s...

Paul, thanks for the comments. I'm now being tortured by all the little details that will prevent me from getting this bike on the road.

The aftermarket 3 into 1 is a Alphabet exhaust. I have the original box, with the stock exhaust stored in it.

When I rebuilt the carbs about 2+ years ago, before this went on hold, I followed Triumph's original instructions about adjusting for altitude, and went DOWN in main jet size. I hadn't thought about the change in exhaust, nor had the PO who did the work with me. It may be a mistake. He also had switched to pods, rather than the stock air filter. I may have to rework the jets back to richer.

The bike was originally set up for Tucson, which is pretty low compared to Santa Fe and most of NM.
