    Got your own grease pit I heard, congrats. Now it's time to lose the wimpy little 250, and buld a proper 650 with nice lumpy cams, that goes way too fast.

    Well I have my own little 2 bay garage but I'm looking at some big boy garages right now. I don't own anything yet though.

    If I build or buy something fast it's probably going to be a 500 or a 125 (RS). A while a go I thought it would be great bike to build a 650/750 Triton. And I have most of the parts and resources to build one but I found that 500 has more potential and that every other european bike has even more potential. I think if I get a really fast bike it will be either a Aermacchi, Ducati, or a Summerfield Manx. And where I'm not a big fan of the Ginny bikes I'll probably just keep saving my money until I get the Summerfield Manx.

    Naaaahhhh, Pre-unit Triton, kick ass in style. Put a 9 bolt head on it, nice lumpy cams, 67 flywheel, maybe a set of Corillio (Not sure if I spelt that one right) rods, forged pistons, and one of those magneto looking electronice ignition set-ups. Not only does it look good and go way fast, but you'll have yuppies with way too much money asking to get one.

    If I run a 67 crank than I will be in the Open Gp or F750. Hmmm... lets see I spoke with Tim Joyce at the Mid Ohio event and he said his HD (F750) has 30 more rear wheel horsies than his well developed Triumph 750 (T.C. heard him say it). Plus my riding ability doesn't really compare to Tim's either. Also around the Loudon track I'd much rather have a 350/500 with around 35/40 rear wheel bhp that weighs less than 250lbs than a 350 pound 40/50 rear wheel bhp clunky slow turning 650/750 Triton. If I were to build a Triton it would be a 500 or most likely a Pre-Unit with a nourished crank but you still limited to about 45 hp without the crank, and after that the cases will do you in, not to mention that its only a 4 speed. If the classes were set up more like AHRMA I would definately build my self a pre-unit Triton, Brits are still my first love, and thats why I was riding a 500 Triton this year but had some technical difficulties. George I have a Triton project under way and was thinking of making an open GP such as the one you described but haven't decided which class to put it in, if you donate a Triumph motor to me I will run it.

    One last thing... Bring your modern Triumph up to NHIS and I'll show you how wimpy my little 250 is.

    Cheers, Aaron

    George - Is the bike in the classifieds the one your going to donate? Also 73's are still right side shift, correct? Cause its got to be right side shift or it just ain't right.
