G80 Love - wanted

After an early G80 - gotta be rigid, doesn't have to be the competition model (It's gonna be changed to alloy barrel anyway)

If you or anyone you know has one - get in touch and let me try to prise it outta their hands.....

Since my baby left me.......

She's sold - gone to her new home!

Little sad - she'll be missed

Triton Thursday

Just the once......

Jacks got his Triton all up and running and looking pretty, this bike sounds lovely!

Gonna be fuggin' awesome when it's built - this is how he picked it up, and knowing Terry it's gonna be a darn sight prettier soon!

Original Triumph Girder rigid running a 500 JAP engine on Dope and a huge GP Carb.
