Bit of an understatement there, I kind of like it just the same.

It's got better oil filtration than it has air filtration.

Don't know but I bet it would sure get some interest at the bike nights. I'd ride it there just to hear some of the comments and see the shaking of heads.

If someone gave it to me, I'm not even sure what I could salvage off of it from parting it out. No telling what else (besides the obvious atrocities) has been done to the engine; the head, cam, probably the crank, even the cases aren't much use, and with that funky front end, you'd probably be taking your life in your hands above a parade or tavern-to-tavern walking pace.

But that's just me; I'm sure it made someone happy building it. Question is, will anyone be happy with one man's vision of what a Triumph "should be"?

lot of thought went into that.

but unevenly.

the front forks/triple trees are very well made and really interesting.

fuel intake, not so much.

what's up with the rocker boxes? i'm unfamiliar with it.

The oddest frontfork I have ever seen, lots of thought have gone into that thing indeed, although not my cup of tea.
