Damn Linker, that is one fine machine.... with all those high quality parts & mods I think it's a bargain at $8500.
I wish I could say I'm a buyer, but at this point in life (71) I'm committed to completing at least SOME of my languishing projects. You know,
those dusty dudes that've been patiently "awaiting work" for far too long; so acquiring yet another motorcycle just isn't in the cards....but DAMN....that is a nice bike.

I sincerely hope you find a buyer that can appreciate all the work & thought that went into it & will ride it to it's full potential.....!

Best of luck with the sale!

Phil

Thanks guys, it’s hard to put this up for sale after 30 years but it’s time. It’s like selling a friend. I’ve developed it continually for years to get to its present form. For instance the engine is tied into the frame with a chromoly top engine mount, and with the 38 mm forks and the stout axles, tighten up the handling a fair bit. And the race quality parts throughout are sort of a necessity for long term race use, something I learned early on. I’ve had good luck with it over the years, some wins (that’s on me, and my meager talents, the bike is very competitive), lots of top fives, quite a few top five season finishes (although it’s hard to do more than a few races a season from Alaska). And many times it’s been the only Triumph out there, flying that Brit bike flag. I had to quit after the ‘17 season, but I’d love to see someone keep racing it out there.

I would buy it and put minimum lighting on it for the street. That is one nice-looking hot rod. (Oh, I'd put one of my Bonneville tanks on it, too)

Too bad the play money is low and no space in the garage these days...

Actually, it does come with a license plate, title, and very, very minimal electrics.

linker, that is an awesome piece! Nothing, and I mean nothing, (at least, in my eyes) looks as good as a Brit racing bike. Road racer, flat tracker, etc. Good luck to you in your sale! I know that it has got to be hard to, "let er go". You've done well. Congrats! Kevin
