I had to sell my beloved Honda Cafe Racer to fund this winter's work but as somebody once told me; you can do anything you want, you just cant do everything. So it was with some regret that I sold the CR and reduced the number of bikes in the garage and spent the lot on upgrading the S3. Last year I had the frame and brackets powder coated, polished the fork legs, swing arm and the footrest brackets and fitted Harrison Billet 6 Pots.
With the proceeds of the Honda sale I bought a complete set of new bodywork (although the tank is Cali spec as thats all Triumph had in Fireball) on the grounds it wouldnt be a lot more than a high quality re-spray
. Maxton built me a new rear shock and rechromed, revalved and respung the forks, the wheels were powder coated white and new rubber fitted, I dumped the hugger in favour of the naked look and also fitted a set of Trident clocks which I think look better and have the added benefit of lights that you can actually see. It also moves the indicators lower and exposes the fork chrome at the top of the legs, I got hold of a second hand set of Yoshi pipes which I have spent hours and hours polishing
Not everybodys cup of tea I am sure, but I really like the way it is looking. I just need to find a pair of Trident headlamp brackets and I can finish it off - Roll on Spring!
