What I did with my classic Triumph today?

As a Hinkley triple owner (don't hate me guys!) I sometimes also read the threads on that section of the Triumph Rat forum and they have a long running thread "what I did to my classic triple today" or something very similar. Posters put up a few lines about what they did with their 'bikes that day..... polished it, rode it, rebuilt it, crashed it, etc etc you get the idea, anything goes really.

Anyway, thought it might be worth starting a similar thread here as I'm selling the "modern" 'bike and concentrating on my classics.
I'll start it off....

Today I got back my speedo which I'd sent to the UK for repair. It was working but had a lot of needle "flutter". Looks like new (still) and can't wait to try it out....

OK who's next?

Richard

Spray painted bottom fork yoke and front brake caliper.

Cleaned up handlebar switches and polished up a few other bits and bobs.

Going to take the top yoke for shot blasting and powder coating, then will put the front all back together.

I just love tinkering with the old girl while listening to the radio - it's sooooooo relaxing.

In my local G is 3 a pint.
But I go for vitamin B = bitter
Possibly vitamin K = keg

Bill, depending where you buy it about 3.00 ish here in N.Ireland and around 4.50-5.00 in ROI.... not as bad as "la belle France!"

Of course we keep all the best Guinness for ourselves only joking!

Might have one tonight, with a bag of Tayto Cheese 'n Onion crisps....

Cheers, Richard
