Default Blown Pre-Unit Drag Bike garage find!

A buddy knew about this and turned it up a few weeks ago.

The owner bought it new in the early 50's... and turned it onto a quarter mile'r... ran 105 at Kingdon, then went back into the shop to get the blower... and never came out.

They're gonna get it going with the blower... I told him he'd better watch his nuts on that chain!

Sam.

Rest assured guys... this one will be taken care of.

The owner is a life long Triumph nut... been doing triumphs for 40 years +... and he likes to preserve what he finds. It'll look "as-is" only washed off and given the pieces needed to get it running.

The brothers also have a few bobbers... Triumph, Norton, Indian... BSA... and flat trackers. The flat trackers were all raced by them. There's even a Triumph road racer in there somewhere. Maybe I can go to the secret hide out some day and report back with some pics... if they'll let me.

Sam.

Excellent! Restoring it would ruin it. Glad to see it will be preserved.

Holy crap that is cool! And look at those manly drilled plates.

But seriously, if that blower chain comes apart or even comes off, You can kiss your manhood (and maybe a leg) goodbye!
