New guy, and my first vintage bike!

Well I shall say Hello! A little about me:

I am a 25 years young custom fabricator at a BMW shop. My specialties are custom fabrication of parts, welding, electrical problems, and engine diag.

I rarely work on my own motorcycles, but then again my current MAIN bike is a 2012 Aprilia RSV4-R APRC that I modded to have ~170RWHP. It's a fun bike for sure, but not the reason I registered for this forum!

The bike I have recently got as my first vintage is: a 1959 Triumph Tiger 650. It is an old cafe racer, built as a race bike back over 20 years ago. Last known to have run... over 20 years ago. I am trying to get it running.

I will make a post in the twins technical section to explain further on what problems I am having.

I hope here is a helpful bubble of knowledge to help me with my new old Triumph!
