newby Bill

Hi everyone
I'm Bill and new to this site.
I picked up this bike from a gentleman who lives near Boston, I live at the other end of the state near the N.Y. state line, Well after more then twenty years of not having a Triumph I placed an add on Craigs list looking for a Triumph - all apart - in boxes and crates, something to rebuild as this is what I've always done (don't trust anybody else work), well I got an email one day from John (Original owner) who tells me he has a bike he's looking to get a grand for, to me this sounded well worth it, told me it was a 1973 750 TR7RV that's been in his shed for 17 years - for the most part STILL ALL TOGETHER, cleaned the fuel system out, rebuilt the carb - 1/4 can of starting fluid and three hours of kicking and I had a bike that not only fired up but ran fairly well.
Here's the REAL love of my life - yes I'm a sad case.

Bill

Hi
Yes the heads are Bonniville and the engine a Tiger ( I call it my Tigerville ) The heads came from a T140V, fits perfectly, I wanted to put a pair of 32mm Mikuni's on it so it can take deep breaths of air, a lot of M.A.P. parts in the engine, the E.I. is a Pazon.

The ignition cover looks similar to the one I got with a Rita ignition I bought years ago. I have Mikunis on my 76 Bonneville. My only complaint is that the left carb is impossible to adjust with the stock air box installed. A guy on another forum told me how to make some out of fiber glass that work well and look good.
Any way, nice bike. enjoy!

Thank you much, it did turn out to be a nice bike - and very fast, I put a ton of money into the motor beefing it for the drag strip ( havent raced it yet ), +40 10 to 1 pistons, belt drive primary and dry clutch, the heads - carbs - E.I. - all H.P. valve train, sent the heads to M.A.P. for a complete working over, bead blasted and then built, with the Pazon it runs so smooth - not so much as a skip running at 50 70 mphs, at the drag strip I'm hoping to get at least 110 to 120 mphs in the quarter, we will see this spring.

EDIT - I almost forgot - and Megacycle cams.
