Long time listener, first time caller

Hello from the Bay Area! I am new to Triumphs, and motorcycles in general. I recently purchased my very first motorcycle - a '74 Bonneville 750 - that needs quite a bit of work. I have zero experience when it comes to mechanics and am obviously in over my head. Go big or go home, right?

When I can kick her on (which doesn't happen every time) she vibrates like crazy and leaks more oil than I know what to do with. I guess the silver lining is that she actually runs so that's a bit of a relief to my own newbie sensibilities.

I'm not too great at remembering to post and keep journals, but I'm planning to start up a restoration thread once I figure out how to approach this. Hope I don't mess this up!
