Love those Triumphs

Nice to find a place I can talk,listen, see nice older Triumphs. I've owned 13, started out with my first one in 1971, was a 1951 650, with an old VL harley springer attached to it, I have been bit ever since. Currently have 3 older and mostly original Triumphs, 1953 rigid frame, rolling chassis only, this is going to be a fun project. #2 is a 64 T120-R, right out of the early 70's, 6 inch over front end, short apes, more like butter fly bars, it is getting complete tear down, and we are taking it Bonneville so have a little fun. #3 is a 64 T 120 R , this bike has been modified some what, it is going to be my Bonneville salt flat project, Quick note, I'm a hot rodder since I hit the ground, Bikes are what keeps me going. Any who, #3 is going to get alot of attention, I hate talking speed stuff with out backing it up, but I'm going to try and hit 200 mph with this bike, I've got a good 20 years left in me, hopefully that's enough time. I also have 3 Harley's, One has been to the salt flats already, what a blast. Any who, looking forward to talking with all of you . Later Rich from Oregon.
