71 Triumph T100c
« on: Nov 22, 2012, 10:54:54 »
This was one of those times when you go to look at somthing and come away with somthing diffrent, I went to Andy T;s to look at a 58 triumph T6 and as i got there Jo was pulling this out the van (they had only just got it) i looked at the T6 and looked at this T100c and said ill have that one, so job done this is it on that night




My intentions are to restore it to a good standerd but i do want to ride it ,park it at the shops and not freek out about it getting wet and it will here in the UK.
Ill post more pics as and when i can,
I am after a set of exhaust;s that it had in the begining Hi level left side if any one can help thet would be great

Thanks Dale ,Ya i was well stoked when i saw it, Hope to spend some time on it this weekend, its been off the road for about two years so i just want to check it over
I want to vapour blast the rocker covers, inlet manifold and the head, clean and paint the jugs, ultra sonic clean the carbs fit new jets ect, polish and clean the engine,

So you're going to get it functionally sound, and then just polish it up, keeping its original paint, and patina.
I would say this is definitely the right way to go.
Unless its a basket case, or someone has "restored" it (badly) already, you want to preserve the integrity and history of the machine.

Yea, I'll probably roast in hell for taking advantage of a widow selling her decesed husbands bike. But since it is such a hodge-podge of model / year A-65's I think I did alright.
I remember early on you were looking for a Brit bike yourself, glad you found such a nice example.
