Hi guys, I have bought my first brit bike last winter and I love it! It's a 67 triumph trophy and it needs some lovin but should be a blast when it's back on the road.

I've had to buy some Whitworth tools first but I'm getting started on fixing her up, I'm sure I'll learn a lot by searching on this forum.

I doubt there are any triumph guys in northern Ontario but let me know if any of you are going to the big run in New Liskeard and I'll drive down to check out your bike and have a cold one!

Thanks guys, all I've done is tear it apart Jon. I'm ditching the seat/fender and I'm not sure about that frisco'd tank. I'm trying to find an intake tappet guide block so I can put the motor back together, I found some work recently so hopefully I'll have more fun money!

Welcome from Toronto. Looks like a fun whip!

I like the frisco's tank, I say go all the way with some radically upswept tall pipes out back... and a sissy bar!

Something like Ron Finch's bike below. It'd make most guys on here want to puke, but I think it's badasss!

As is, I'm really digging the rear fender mounts.

Anyway, if you're ever further south in Ontario, hit me up and we'll go for a ride, or grab a bevvy.

Welcome again...

Yeah I hang on chopper boards too, but the technical info here is priceless. It will get more radical I'm sure, I've always liked real choppers.
