It's real fine.

Are those stock(ish) bars? They look different from the ones supplied on US Triumphs. Wider.

Yep stock US bars. The Brit and aus ones were narrower with less rise.

Even had holes pre drilled for horn button

the black tail light and brackets look excellent - just enough for me - not over done - well done -I have a 70 650 tiger with not so great original spring gold paint that looks green to me - exact same tail light - now I think I may paint it and the front fender brackets black as you did

Repros are a little thicker than OEM. Probably nicer.

Paul & Peter Dunster helped me out alot with the tuning and overall build of this bike. These blokes know so much about old british bikes and cars.

DAMN that's beautiful. Sounds mightyfine as well.

At this point it's overwhelmingly unlikely that I'll ever have another Triumph. Glad I can at least see and hear yours, as a slobber enhancer.

OK time to really get crazy. Contain yourselves....
