I did a thread about 12 months ago titled you never know writing about how I rode my bike to work for one last time on a beautiful Autumn Saturday morning and then Suffered a seizure 3 hours later after arrival. I then went up to the local hospital which picked...

    Bonnie's Facelift

    When putting covers and gaskets on always when possible (a straight line fit use guide pins, go to a bolt shop and buy some bolts the same size and thread pitch as the cover bolts but about 6-8 inches in length, the length can be cut if needed and cut the heads off grinding on a slight taper...

    Bonnie's Facelift

    I think I would be investing in a 3x3 aluminium shed that you get in kit form and throw it up. I buy second hand ones for about $80 to store parts, one is set up as a painting shed but that size would be just enough to work on your bike and include a bench and the beauty of it is you can off...

    Bonnie's Facelift

    I had slippage between 4th and 5th, checked out the clutches and found very little wear to the disc or plates (measuring everything with a micrometer) but I had already bought a Barnett performance kit so I thought bugger it I will fit it. Slippage was gone from the 4th to 5th but I had this...

    Bonnie's Facelift

    What you have done looks fantastic isn't polishing alloy the hard way fun, and I say that with a sarcastic tone. I did up a 1988 Honda CR250 polishing every bit of alloy on that bike and twenty years of being treated as a motocross bike had not been kind to any of it. At one stage I basically...

    Flat battery

    Anything in Australia with Triumph stamped on it is an obscene amount of money. Everybody is quick to write the batteries off if there is a starting issue but if kept charged or ridden regularly they last for some time. My 05 and 06 batteries are still going well. which reminds me I should go...

    Finally got my tank done

    Looks cool I like the coloured covers, be careful not to over do it, as mentioned the headlight bucket may be something to consider blacking out, let the ideas come slowly and don't force them. Give the gaiters a go I was never a big fan then one day I thought I had to have them and I really...

    It missed shedding a tear when trying to decide which bike to get rid of to make room for another and wanting to contact the new owner a few months down the track to talk to them about the bike (Basically interrogate them to see if they are looking after it and keeping up with the servicing...

    66 TT Can you pick one??

    This is to pick the brains of all of you guys involved with the 60's model Triumphs, particularly the TT model which we didn't get in Australia. There is a guy with a 66 Bonnie for sale that has aluminium fenders, white tank with orange stripe down the middle (Like the TT) and correct 66 Tank...
