Yesterday i bought a Triumph frame on t'ebay, only 3 miles out of town, 100% sound straight and even (some) original paint, and very very cheap. Collected it this morning and tried in a wheel i have that someone told me is pre-war Triumph... like a glove. New project ! i dont even want one, my chop still isn't as good as i would like and the drag bike is wanting a bit of titivating in the hope that i can get a final run out on it this autumn. I was going to re-vamp the A10 this winter as well.
Some things just have to be, i have an iron T'Bird motor and gearbox, i need : rigid rear engine and gearbox plates with adjusters, set of girders, front wheel (Tiger Cub, Bantam trials ish ?), shitty seat thats about it. Now i really need to sell something..
Mr. frame seller also has a Model T Ford and an Austin 7 to sell before he emigrates to NZ, i tried not to look.
Badges from Amsterdam, in the post this morning a little packet from Marcel at Motor Parade, didnt ask just sent 'em. Love thy fellow blogger.
Thou should'st not start building another Triumph.
