I thought about it, but I am sticking with the Harley look, the Adventurer is somewhat unique and I like riding something that doesn't fall in the "cookie cutter mode." All the best on your restoration and repairs, some very knowledgeable folks on this site that are more than willing to share they expertise freely....
Yeah those 30 minutes are spread over 3 months, so you can only go out for 5 minutes at a time.

I had read about that thunderbird rear section swap but I don't think I will bother with that. It is so expensive to ship things to Iceland so I try to avoid it as much as I can, especially for big things. And there are not enough Triumphs in Iceland to be able to find parts here unfortunately. How do those elimination kits work?

I might keep the rear fender, I haven't made up my mind indefinitely but I will have to do something about that torn seat though. It looks so trashy with a torn seat
