'69 project thus far......

Post by flexyourhead » Thu Jul 07, 2011 4:51 pm

Well I finally got the springer back together, wheels all reassembled and the motor finished and back in. Still a long way off but I'm getting there.
I hope you enjoy.

Engine work, wheel reassembly etc were done by Bryce @ Early Triumph who I could not recommend strongly enough. He aswell as Trojan opened my eyes right up to what some people pass as engine rebuilds.
As this was getting done, I was privy to sharing all the problems Bryce had with it, to fixing said problems.....and there were definately problems. It was amazing to think the engine actually kicked over prior to rebuild considering the mess we found inside. Ahhh, mere memories now. :D :D :D
Thanks folks for the positive responses. It means alot.

Wheels looks great!, did you polish them yourself?

Engine and rest of the bike looks very tidy.

I love your masking tape notes to self…………..
