New to this forum.

Just purchased a 1965 T100c (1970) engine and a few well thought out mods which wont please the traditionalists (digital speedo and tacho anyone) by previous owner.
Ground up rebuild just gone through the vinning process and has 4 kilometers on clock since rebuild.

Primarily here for advice around breaking in the engine and general maintenence - have only wielded a spanner in anger before now so limited knowledge. Looking to pick the brains of you good guys and gals starting with advice on new/old ownership and breaking in the engine.
I was concerned (about glazed bores) because it would have been run for a little while (possibly idling), because it needed vinning as a bike had been of the road for a long while and they test ride and emission test etc

This bike has had a ground up resto with the idea of making it an easy to keep daily rider. I have never been a fair-weather rider but may just try to keep this one clean.

Tools, regular maintenance tips on keeping the engine and running gear sweet - it is basically a new motorcycle that I have arriving.

Have owned a few bikes, CD185 Honda, RG250, Enfield 500 (with chair), GSX1200 (inazuma) great bike, Guzzi V75, Sportster 48, Blackbird and now the Triumph.
