Default Triumph T100 Bobber - Build in Progress.

Hey Guys,

First time poster from Australia here.

I bought my Trump 7 months ago in a pretty shitty condition. Got it from another state and couldn't really see it in person. Looking at the photo it seemed like a bargain, but after a closer inspection, I was in for a shock.

As a hobby, I restore all kinds of antiques and also make my own stuff. So I decided to give it a go and try and restore/modify this bike, with no previous experience what so ever Most of the original parts were binned and I had to custom make afew things myself. All I can say, is that it's been interesting so far...

Anyways, I attached a few pictures of how the bike was when I bought it and how it is, as of a few weeks ago. Just waiting for the engine and a few other little bits and pieces to complete the build. I will post updated pictures as I go on.















Cheers,
Phil.

For having no experience that is a helluva bike so far.
Plus I have to give you a +1 for the blood on the rag where the rear chain guide is.

That's the first time I've seen an early Triumph rigid section fitted to a unit bike. Also, those old headlight ears/fork covers that were on it when you got it are worth good money. Looks good. Keep us posted on the progress.

She's coming along quite nicely. Keep posting progress pics.
Definitely keep the fork covers and clean them up. They are
a nice piece and you may wish you kept them around.

I like the factory hardtail grafted onto the unit loop , gonna be a nicely proportioned machine.
If it was mine I`d keep the red tank and fork covers .
Is that a stock tank for your front section(3TA/5TA?) in the later pics? If so ,how does it fit with your bolt in toptube?
Looks good , keep updating with pics.

I don't know if it is 3TA/5TA. I bought through a friend from the USA. I enlarged the hole to make it fit. And it worked out perfectly.

Hi sawczuk

Looks great!!! Keep us posted.

The frame looks like a front part 5TA/t100 or even 3TA (from early sixties - see detachable top section in the frame) attached to a rigid earlier rear end from 5t/T100 or 6T. In the first photo the frame front looks the same, but the rear attachment is different and does not look Triumph to me.

Engine corresponds to frame so unit early sixties either 350 or 500cc. The wheels are TRI too, correct for the front frame part and engine.

cheers

Hey Guys,

Thanks for the positive replies.

Added a few little things to the bike. However, there is still no engine or gearbox yet. Waiting for them to be recoed by my mechanic.

Anyway, some more pictures for you.

Cheers,
Filip.

agree though - definitely keep those fork tube covers and that headlight mount assembly. nice retro touch, and will look so clean all buttered up and black.

Filip has asked me to continue this thread as he is having PC problems.
Following are details of the machine as it arrived at our workshop.

"Customer and friend Filip has been heavily modifying a Triumph T100sc. This is his first bike and we can't stress how enthusiastic and determined this guy is.
No matter what problems arrise, he refuses to give up.
Some hard lessons learnt along the way
(trusted a dodgey mechanic and the first engine re-build stung him hard) , also a few people claiming to be able to tackle jobs they are not capable of - welding for one...
But that's all in the past as this
beast is now coming along nicely!
We have been offering advise and supplying parts for this build from it's humble begginings and it's good to see it in it's finishing stages.
When Filip asked me to re-re-build the motor and get the machine on the road i couldn't resist!
The following is basically how the machine arrived to us,
but the early stage pics of the amount of work involved to get it to a roller are quite amazing
- especially for the fact that Filip built 90% of it in his flat living room!!

Engine stripdown and assessment:

Filip was right to be suspicious about the previous "engine builder".
When we started to strip down this abused 500cc, we were astounded
to say the least!

The head was painted gloss black, but they didn't remove or mask the valves, springs etc. The exhaust valves were burnt and the guides worn.
Removing the paint was very painstaking as they painted the head without removing tar, grit and the usual contaminents.
In a nutshell, they pulled the head off, quick degrease and painted everything as it is.

The barrels now off and we found new piston rings installed on standard old, worn and damaged pistons. The bore also had scores and was not honed.
With the timing cover off we have come to the conclusion that the cases have never been split...Hope at last! I say hope because if no
one has touched the bottom end then the chances are that the damage stops here.

Just when we had our hopes up we removed the inner and outer g/box cover and we were shocked beyond belief...The picture tells the story.

The gear cluster looks like it's been in a sewer, no wonder Filip was worried that his gears were not shifting by hand and k/starter won't work!
I'm amazed at the fact that the bloke who "re-built" this engine ever thought that he would fool anyone into attempting to fire it up!
SHAME!!!
The Re-build:

We Hydro Tech blast alloy parts and polish covers, it's the best way to go, if you want details, please PM

Chemical cleaning and balancing is imperative to any engine re-build.
Crank, rods, cams and pinions installed and cases now ready to marry.


Brand new cams fitted with tappets and pushrods.

Once again, the importance of cleaning...

Next - Rings gapped, pistons to conrods to take bored, honed and painted barrels!

At this stage we like to triple check everything... And everything is perfect!

Getting close, we have re-built the head, rocker assys completely and torqued it down to the barrels.
The gearbox and clutch assy are also assembled.

The engine is now ready to fit onto the motorcycle.
It does help to have someone help guide or lift to avoid any damage
to the frame or other components - not to mention personal injury.

Time now to align the engine, tighten bolts and double check everything.

We are very pleased with the result so far and Filip is preparing a headlight bracket and other odds and ends.
The next stage is the exhaust and elecrical system.
Carby is also ready to install...Stay Tuned!!

Later on, they dropped the distributor, but just covered the boss in the mold ... so the later engines still have a flat spot shaped like a dist. mount hole and hold-down area ... even the back of the cylinder is still relieved where a distributor would sit ...

See page 2 of this thread. The photo with the left footpeg shows a fabricated L shaped plate.
This is where the standard brake lever is mounted. I will get some close-ups for you next week.

Default Re: Triumph T100 Bobber - Build COMPLETE !!!

Today is Filips' day!
Wiring all done, oiled up and ready to go.
God only knows the last time this bike was ridden, but one thing
i can say is that Filip didn't want to stop riding!







This little competition engine pulls along just fine and the
bike is actually quite comfortable.
Videos coming soon!









Lot's of hard work here and some heartaches but once the job is done
the end results should speak for themselves.

Cheers Hemitech01

Great job. I'm constantly trying to talk myself into hardtailing my T100R. It's hard though cause it's perfect. This makes me wanna order the hardtail section and get it done.

Stronger than ever! Filip rides it almost daily. Don't let the saddle fool you, even on long rides it's not a problem.
Mind you Fil weighs in at around 100kg and the Trumpy handles him without missing a beat.

Basically public holidays closed and that would probably be from 24 dec to 3 Jan. Best call us before you make the trip.
As for pubs, plenty around but with their own beers, we call them back yards. You'd have to google that one.
