    Brent- Congrats, you'll have fun. The learning curve is not as steep as some people make it out to be, I think. I assume you bagged out of the idea of a new Triumph. Not that there not nice bikes, but good call. You've got an old Bonnie, You OWN it (not the bank), you can play with it, have fun and it will always be worth something.

    Hacka- Thanks. Now the the next time the Mrs. gets frustrated with me when I have too much shit lying around, I can show her photographic evidence that it could be much, much worse. And what is up with the exit sign? Really tough fire regs in TN?

    Cheers,
    Leo

    Oh yeah Leo, you could always have her chat with my gal for a spell and she isn't into bikes at all

    imagine her shock and horror the first time she visited but instead of running she decided I needed her

    when I bought this place it had been remodeled for home health care and I guess I forgot to take down the exit things

    not a bad thing since it's like a maze and the good thing is it's handicap accessible and all on one level

    so it's not a problem to put even a long bike in one of the bath rooms

    but I did put in a big water heater, tub/shower, and knocked down a few walls

    FR....... I wouldn't call those my "collection"....... just some that would like some time in the shop across the street

    Got it. Your living room is the staging area for the shop, the "waiting room". Cool.

    brent,

    don't forget to install some "sweet, bar end mirrors" on your bike.

    i hear they are the "rage" with the triumph crowd.

    sorry, i couldn't resist.

    Pretty easy bike to work on once you learn the basics. Not sure what year yours is but my 73 is still positive earth and right side shift. Takes some getting used to but ohhhhhh so fun when they are purring along.

    Thanks Guys, I haven't really had time to work on it yet. I bought a XS650 the week before and started on that on first. I just want a nice bike to cruise around on. No clip ons rearsets. I keeping that big ass seat too. I want confortability for once. All the ugly shit is coming off soon and it will look good. First job is to get the tank mount kit and get it running.
