Thanks. I am still not believing it. I have to wait for the bike to be delivered. Meanwhile, I have to make room for it. Time to sell a bike .... Or make my garage bigger

My hands ache just thinking about it.

Even if you use professional polishing equipment it's still several hours of work.

Almost too much bling for a Trumpet ... maybe I should take everything apart and powder coat the frame and wheels!

Happy Birthday Paul. Stunning bike!

The polished frame was the look Triumph originally intended for the bike. So your bike is especially kiff!!! (=cool dude!). It was only after some frame issues early on in Triumph's re-introduction to the US-market that the factory decided to paint the frame.

The exhaust is a factory '99 header with an Ackropovic titanium slip on.
