Hello from Chicago

What's up, Everyone!! Chiming in from Chicago. I just aquired my 1st Triumph from my Harley dealer, who was looking to move her quickly. I have no idea which model. All I know is that she is a '78 with a 750cc motor. I'm looking forward to learning a lot here....

LOL!!!! Yup, that's the one. I've been eyeing since October and finally pulled the trigger.

Anyone know how I can find out exactly what model I have? I eventually would like to buy parts but I don't have a specific model or specs.

Do you have a visible VIN? Some of the folks who hang out in the Classics section are savy with identifying a motorcycle by its VIN.

Good luck!
