To start the thread. Bought and brought home yesterday. Compression 90 psi on each cylinder after just two kicks. Many things missing. Not my first rescue - I've done several GL1000 GoldWings, a CB750F, an RD400c, a little XR100R. Most were what I refer to as "fence row rescues". The kind you find forgotten in a fence row that you have to pull weeds out of. This bike appears to have been kept in the dry, at least in recent years. And, I've yet to find rodent evidence!
Already placed many items on my eBay watch list, but holding off on purchases until some more investigation is done. Wiring harness appears fairly complete except for many connectors stripped off of the ends. No controls on it.
I'll probably attack cleaning it up and rebuilding the carbs first as that has been my normal method. I have the pdf parts and service manuals.
I have a very nice T140 saddle that appears to be very close fit. Might get a pair of hinges and try to mount it.
Present plan is for a resto-mod. This is only my second Triumph, and the first was a '69 TR6C back in 1972 that was fully chopped (I should have been shot for that).
Photo is as it sat whem purchased.
