hello all

I have been doing alot of reading asked a couple questions thought I would come to the welcome page. I have a 1970 TR6R that I bought in 1974 . In 1995 the kickstarter gear went south and I parked it in the back og my garage. Well my son took a riding class and got his motorcycle endorsement and talked me into restoring the old Triumph. He has gone off to college, now here I am restoreing it by myself I really dont mind. I have it about down to bare frame with the tank and fenders at the painter. I never cared for the color of the 70 tiger (spring gold) so I am having painted the 70 Bonny color (astral red and silver). I have decided to have the frame powder coated as well as few other parts. I have found the parts are pretty easy to find, got alot from British Only in Garden City MI. some more from Baxter Cycle in Marne IA. I am looking foward to the spring when I hope this project will done. I will try to post some pics as I go along.
