Now she's looking like a proper bike Jon. I've got a hankering for a project bike like this, little harder to come by over here.

Thanks Rod. I know the majority of Triumph and BSA bikes came to the U.S. but even here, guys think the well has dried up. They couldn't be further from the truth, as evidenced in this other recent thread.

This stash is about an hour away from me. The middleman selling the collection knows of two or three others even nearer to me. And that's just what's on the surface. Who knows how much is out there and local to me in rural Vermont. Then, try and imagine the more populated states ! So, keep looking, you may have something similar near you !

Hi Jon,

I hope I can make it to one of your visits to these stashes.

I've mentioned the independent shop, Vintage Steele in Brattleboro VT -- they scour the Vermont countryside for those barn finds, with some British showing up, like this one

Hi Kurt,

I hope so too !! BTW, I wouldn't mind making another trip out to that stash in St. Johnsbury/Lyndonville. Apparently Wednesdays and Thursdays are the available times for the seller. I am off this Wednesday if you can make it ?

Ordered a 3.25x19 Dunlop K70 for the 1966-1967 8" SLS wheel that I will be fitting to the Daytona. I have also been cleaning the wheel up and getting it ready. A few other small parts and the chain arrived today, so looking forward to getting them installed !!

Well, the K70 arrived and has been installed on the correct type 8" front SLS wheel which I just happened to have on hand and it looks marvelous !! The wheel hub was repainted with Rustoleum Aluminum, which is what I had on hand. Close enough to Silver for me ! The original axle and bearings, etc., were thoroughly cleaned, bearings re-greased, external parts derusted and the wheel was put back together. The W1641 axle was swapped out for one that I had that had no rust on it and the brake plate was pretty crusty, so sanded it and polished it by hand....good to go !

Also installed the new fork gaiters and clips as well as new metalastic bushes and related components for the "P" clamps into the top triple tree. The metalastic bush drift tool is a MUST for this job if you don't want to spend more than two minutes on that job, start to finish ! I also, installed the new chain, which is a 103 link chain. I had purchased a 104 link chain, so only needed to get rid of one link which was made easy with the use of my Dremel and cutting wheel. The freshly painted brake torque stay is also back on the bike and that is today's progress ! After these pics were taken, I hand sanded the timing and gearbox outer covers and will post pics of them, nice and shiny tomorrow bigt

Good on ya Dr. Jon, another saved. The surgery to remove bondo looks very good.

Have the carbs needed much, jets and such?

I fitted copper RB gaskets to my own machine, it's among the best things I've done. Gone are the daily tappet adjustments, and no oil leaks. Natch, surfaces must be FLAT.

Big fun ahead for you on that great machine!

Thanks Dave. I haven't messed with the carbs yet but will be taking them apart soon and giving them a good clean and all that good stuff. Good tip about the RB gaskets, thanks !

Test fitting the coils to the frame. I found a set of coils with the 99-1052 clips. With the standard spacers, they cause the largest part of the coils to contact the gas tank recesses. This is with the 2.5 gallon U.S. spec tank. I like this setup though.

Thanks Red !! It's certainly been fun turning it back into what it was...or almost...what it was when it left the factory. It was pretty rough to start with but really has been a treat to work on cool
