Guys I’m looking for all owners of 1958 Speed Twins. If you have one please message me I am looking to make a register of the last of this awesome pre unit. I only know of 2 of the 1082 built for that year. So if you know of someone or have one please contact me, thanks in advance. Bushy

Thanks, looks like I will have to keep bumping this up. Seeing that there aren't many 1958 5T Speed Twins.

Well we now have 3 on the register.

So if anyone sees one or knows of one please help with details, thanks.

Anyone, I'm still looking, judging by the very, very few I can find looks like the price will sky rocket for this awesome last year of manufacture.

It's had a T110 cylinder and head put on it at some point in it's life (not by me). Apart from that there's a magneto in place of the coil ignition and Avon road riders fitted. It wasn't much fun to ride on the Skidmasters and Safety Mileage that were on it when I bought it.

So is it a low compression 633, or was it stroked at the same time?
