My '68. Just getting re-interested, got it this far along a few years back and ran into a problem with matching head and rocker boxes. Got put on the back burner.

1970 TR6R, abandoned 1975 in a damp San Francisco cellar. I inherited the rusted hulk and brought it back to life. It's a rider, not a restoration.

Have been making steady small improvements. Runs great and I'm riding it daily now.

Wonderful. The Blackbird might be my favorite of all time. Good Job Bill. Paint looks great! Nacelle's are awesome.

Here's my project. It's a T100C that my dad bought in 1990 and has sat out in various barns ever since. Pretty sure it was thrown together from junkyard parts, because most of it is right for 1968, although the engine and frame numbers say it's a 1967.

This is how it was when I got it back in May. Please note the block of wood that was used as a primary case plug.

Here's how far I've gotten. Just got into the engine the other day. This my first restoration, so I'm learning it all as I go along.

I brought this '79 T 140 V home some time back and I will be starting in on it now that the latest Norton project is done and gone...

Not a full blown restoration however, lots of little things to do on it... The carbs are in the ultrasonic cleaner now, I have the correct rear seat rail, paint probably, top end gaskets, we will see how things progress..

Just acquired a 1974 Triumph Bonneville T120. Trying to figure out how to post pic. Just 6771 miles on the clock. Tank has been repainted to original purple/white. Looks great. Hopefully will be at Mid Ohio next year.

Hey all:

Here is a shot of my 1966 T100sc that I've been working on for the last few months. Just under 5600 original miles and it's been sitting since the mid 1970's, but was stored in a garage and had all the fluids drained. Before and current pics below.

This is a picture of my regular rider. Love the bike. Starts first kick and smooth as a Triumph could be.

The difference in the exhaust pipes on Army Mutt's '67 Bonneville emphasize how the CORRECT exhaust pipes follow the curved lines of the bike, and how many reproduction exhaust pipes are too "angular," because they look like their maker bent them over his knee.

Irish,
The original pipes were drawn as opposed to mandrel bent, like Armours and other do it. My understanding is that LF Harris has the original tooling for these pipes so if you want the correct contour, they are probably the only supplier that can do it properly.
It's been a while since Keith Moore told me this story so things might have changed since.
Cheers,
Bill
