    .As requested, here is some rebuild tech on the Lucas K2F and K2FC magnetos. Bear in mind that I use a third party vendor to re-magnetize the case magnets, and when necessary, to replace armatures as a last case scenario.

    This build is another client build, BUT will be a different than any before it. There are several surprises on this build. Things that, before now, did not exist (to my knowledge). This client said he wanted near -0- input on the build or paint, he did not want to see ANY progress pics, and only...

    Hey everyone. I'm slowly gathering parts to build up a Triumph pre-unit, but I cant get my hands on an early rigid frame. I'll be going with 53+ front loop, and I'd like to build a hardtail to match the rear section of an earlier rigid frame as closely as possible. If anyone would be...

    Well, I was holding out to do a build thread on my next personal bike to show off a few cool details we have been developing, but that keeps getting pushed back with client work. For those of you that know the "formulaic" look of our bikes, this one should be the best of the best, for whatever...

    Hi, I have a 1950 T110 Triumph and my Lucas K2F mag is toast. I can get it rebuilt or I was thinking about getting the Pre Unit Morris Mag for it. I've searched the forums up and down and found some useful info on it about timing and what not but my main question is what would be better in the...

    I can't peg this frame. the post is different than most and so are the motor/ tranny mount positions. It is stamped with an R after the serial number. I believe it was a 1956 number. Oh yes, I am a new member, long time lurker.
