About 12 or 13 years ago I found this on Craigslist nearby for short money. It was about 90% there and the owner had bobbed it attempting to make a street racer. A complete strip down followed with a plan to bring it back to stock.. well close to it. Naturally life intervened and it sat in storage waiting for light of day. My source for Triumph and BSA knowledge (AKA Dad) traded for odds and ends, attaching an early rear fender to do away with the ugly gargoyle taillight. Now that I have a nice spacious garage at my house it’s time to get serious.. more to follow

Couple days compiled into one post for the last couple weeks.

Some issues were found when taking the top end off. Had to carefully drill out a couple very stripped Phillips screws. Pistons and cylinders looking good. Found the last owner used ALOT of liquid gasket which ended up everywhere so the cases are getting split.

Primary side looking good. Clutch setup was like new (probably is) Found a couple minor parts missing which I assume were omitted for weight. Couple more screws had to be drilled on the timing cover but went pretty easy. Transmission looking good and out. All for now at least what I can remember

500's are fun bikes to ride especially on the back twisty roads. My '69 500C is probably one of the funest bikes I have on the back roads, light and nimble and really run great up on the cams.
