Paul recently bought this well travelled Tribsa and has brought it to me to have the motor freshened up. I dug a bit of history to see what had been done and when and it seems the bike has looked pretty much like this for over 25 years and no one has any recollection of it having had the engine apart in that time. It still starts and runs sweet but i suspect due to the amount of oil it blows out its time has come.
The last 3 owners all had intentions of building it into something else but fell for its boyish good looks and kept it the way it is, i think i'd have done the same, this bike is way better than yet another showroom standard nut and bolt rebuild.
