My 73 Bonneville 750

1973 Triumph Bonneville 750. First year for the front disk brake. Sun rims, SS spokes. SS master cylinder. Corbin gun fighter seat. Had both carbs honed at Lund machine and the sliders skirted with stainless steel. Also put in 210 main jets.

I'm in the process of putting M-bars on it and cobbling together some home made rear sets, using a t150 shift lever flipped backward, tilting the kicker forward a notch, cutting the brake lever down and welding one of the passenger pegs to the brake lever bolt.

Put on a new clutch cable, and will need to put in a new clutch basket soon, at which time I'm planning on putting in a 21 tooth sprocket.

Here is a short video of me kicking the bike:

Still waiting to see it with all the new parts.
As you know, I have an idea of what it will look like. I am jealous that the gunfighter fits yours as it should. I went back to stock for a while until I fab some hardware to, at the least, hold the seat on. I am also a little jealous your bike will stop smile

I fashioned some rear sets for my Trident years ago. I just used some BSA passenger pegs mounted in the original peg holes. I think the brake lever I used was from a Gold Star. I used a T140 shift lever turned round. That lever is a bit shorter than the T150, no bashed shin when starting.
I actually grew to love the "backwards" shift pattern.
I'll look to see if I can find the instructions published in the old Trident/Rocket3 OC news letter.

How do you like the Corbin? Been thinking about one for my 73 also but have heard mixed reviews. Jim Chamberlin
