Not technically a restoration, but a scratch build of a Triton.

Starting with a rough '66 Norton "Featherbed" frame-

add rough but complete '66 Triumph 650 engine-

[Linked Image]

Add a complete front end from a Suzuki GT550 in order to get the 4 leading shoe brakes-

[Linked Image]

Simmer and stir, slowly adding in all kinds of shiny bits, including some of the late Malcolm "BritBodger" Dixon's collection of M.A.P. go-fast stuff, and we get a pretty nifty '66 TriTonUki

Yeah, yeah, there are a million Tritons out there these days; right, but I kinda like this one. Something about the proportions seems "right" to me; nothing "sticking out" funny...

Beautiful work, GrandPaul, and I learned a new word "TriTonUki".

GrandPaul, the "restoration" in the title of this thread isn't about the restoration of bikes -- it is the restoration of the Triumph Picture thread that got lost in the big forum mishap. Either way, your pictures fit in just fine.

O.K. Dave, here are some from today out cruising around just putting on some fairly gentle miles. I guess the Brits call it a bimble in the lanes. I stopped along the way a few times and snapped some pictures:

Coolio!
Go to "The Cubsite", it's all there down to the bottom ends.
Fun little bikes with the simplest form of the unit single engines.
You'll be lucky to find a bushing where later models have bearings!

Built 'er up from two totally trashed Desert Sleds. Center-plug head from Japanese gamble racer, 750, blueprinted crank, etc. Runs very strong! Braced swingarm is a period piece.

When people who should have known better cautioned me about the dangers of motorcycle racing, I always told them that a fear of death is nothing more than a fear of life in disguise.

Really! Beautiful bike. I have a '77 that was never painted the factory colors, since we've had it that is. Always liked that Pacific Blue paint scheme.

Nice '77.....my dad had that bike until some pickup truck driver coming the other way made a left hand turn right in front of him. He was fortunate...only a few broken toes. He took the insurance money and bought the Siver Jubilee....
