A 500 engine with open pipes and twin carbs wouldn’t be my first choice to power a laid back rigid cruiser. What was the designer thinking? Hardly surprising that it was kept in a private collection (a shed?) once completed, 5 miles on the road would’ve been enough to convince me that I’d built a large paperweight. The good news is that it’s a numbers matching bike, the engine number matches what’s left of the frame.
Here is a very looking matching number Triumph T100R 500 Hardtail Bobber, Chopper Custom. Finished in 2017 and kept in a private collection since. It runs, rides and all gears select but will need recommissioning and fettling due to time standing. Comes with file of receipts for work done...
