I hope this is the right place for this, please forgive if not!

Just joined this excellent forum as I'll be doing a ton of research on the bikes I acquired some years ago. Short story, my dad is/was a big time Triumph fan and has owned many over the years going back to the early/mid 60's. He promised the bikes he still had (3) to me a few years ago (if he didn't need to sell 'em) and stored them in his SoCal garage, until I'm ready to pick them up, which is now. They are shipping today to my home in the Dallas area. I'll be getting busy on them over the winter.

If anyone is interested: '67 Bonneville, '67 TR6C and a '68 T100C .

The first two are in pretty good shape under 27 years of dust (they were last tagged in '92). He tells me they are very close to 100%, no aftermarket stuff, etc. I have no way to confirm that (yet), his memory is not what it used to be (Alzheimers), so I'm sure there's some stuff to be corrected. Example, I cleaned off the Bonneville tank enough to get a look at the finish... there is NO WAY that's factory paint. Asked him about it, "oh yes I do remember having it painted:. frown

The T100C is a little rough around the edges. A few missing parts here and there.

All of them run, or did when he parked them, they all turn over, no rust at all, although his dang cats pissed on the rims of the Bonneville. Rust looking stuff there, but after a little rubbing, looks like it will all come off. I'm sure I'll find all kinds of issues once I dig in, but overall the bikes are in really good shape.

Anyway, wanted to share my excitement and introduce myself. I'll be on here a LOT, but I promise to burn-up the search function before asking all my noob questions! No good pics yet, but I'll throw one up of them in their tomb of 27 years. Once I get them back to Texas, I'll post more if anyone is interested.

Regards!

Bob
