Just back from the Isle of Man Classic and Manx GP, the island was awash with fantastic classics which outnumbered modern bikes I am glad to say. All sorts from Vincents to Gold Stars,lots of modern Triumph Classics but only saw one other TBS with a sidecar attached!

Mine attracted a lot of interest I was pleased to see in such exalted company.

Re-jetted (42/145) rizoma risers, lsl handlebar, truclight led low/hi beam, self made double led brake light, bare metal with clear coat and complete DIY copper leaf on seat cowl, dart screen and badges. Tank swoosh in copper still pending. A tinge of copper on the helmet for the 2017 nyc DGR

Another pic following the removal of the tank knee rubber grips which is a great improvement .
Also removed the airbox and fitted intake pods which worked out absolutely perfectly using a Sigma jet kit supplied to suit the Mecatwin silencers.Dunno about power but its so much more free revving and sounds lovely. Also looks good taking away the chunky airbox.

Decided to redo the front end copper leaf project as I didn’t like the dart screen compared to how well the solo seat came out. Also chose a Thruxton 900 Mini fairing over the older dart screen.
