I have always messed around with Triumphs and still have a couple of 'em ('72 T100R, '71 T110).
This '67 A65 came into my life and I have really become an enthusiast. My bike is very pretty but not "correct" by a long shot. To start with, it was born a '67 Lightning but now has a '72 one-carb engine, so it looks like a T-bolt, with appropriate side covers & decals. Fine with me. I think the valve cover is different as well.
I wonder: is this old Monobloc
appropriate for a '67-? (I just read that the Concentric
was introduced in '66.) As it is, fitting the air cleaner is a real hassle and I wonder if a Concentric
would remedy this. Aesthetically, the MonoBrick looks cool to me and barely leaks-!
Sorry for the dumb questions--this old machine fools a lot of Beeer people until they look more closely at the clutch cable, etc.
