Hello all!

Good evening, I like to start of by saying hello to all those riders out there.

Yes I am new to the bike scene period lol.

For my first bike my friend found me a nice 01 triumph sprint 955. Although it was wrecked. The bike was very very cheap and we are working on it together.

The main problem right now is an oil leak that seems to be comeing from the kickstand bolt hole? Any ideas? lol

Well seeing how the plastics are very expensive we are doing some minor plastic repair then the bike will be repainted Triumph Saphire blue. Will be adding a seat cowl to give it more of a sportier look. I cant say it was a bad deal for only $1200 and only has 5k miles.

Well Thanks for haveing me and hope to hear from fellow riders

Welcome! Rebuilding a Sprint, what a great way to introduce yourself to motorcycles in general and Triumph in particular. There are many, many knowledgeable members who are willing to give good advice freely. Don't be afraid to ask or look naive. To get started you might want to check out the Sprint forum under the Sport and Touring section. To get there, click here. Enjoy!
