Hello from Bristol UK

I'm going to look at a Speed Four this weekend, so I signed up to do some research.

A bit of history...
I'm Welsh, but I've been living just over the border and bringing civilization to the English for the last 27 years.

My motorcycling history extends all the way back to 1968, and includes three Triumphs - a T140 bought new in 1965, a 1966 T120 owned for a couple of years in the 1980s, and the ex-police TR7P flat tracker project that's been in my garage for longer than I care to admit.

Oh, and my brother has just bought a Sprint to provide a civilized companion to his rather rorty, customized with Storz parts, 1200 Sportster "flat tracker".

Good to be here, and I look forward to contributing if I can, and plundering the knowledge in the archives if I end up buying the Speed 4.

Gareth

Well, I bought it, and I've already completed the first mod (true twin headlamps) thanks to the forum.

Next - handlebar conversion.

Toyotas, please (those L badges have to go!)

Two Soarers and an Aristo - 18 cylinders, 8 litres, 6 turbos, and about 900bhp.
