Re: another triumph barn find

feck me that looks to be complete and not in bad condition at all.
Is that an original seat? Doent look like there much wear or damage to it.

Guess you have something enjoyable to look forward to every day of this lock down.
Good luck with the restore, she looks like she could turn out to be an absolute cracker.

yep going to leave it as is rust and all.
Not the original seat and rear mudguard is wrong but
it is matching numbers and i'll leave it the way it is
I'll clean it up gradually and stick new tires on it and ride it as is.
only has 3400 miles on the motor.
I've been offered a stupid amount of money for it which surprised me nicely

Re: another triumph barn find

Proper order to keep it as it is - patina and all that

....forgot it had a sprung hub on the rear hoop

New tires fresh fluids and away ya go - no excuses
