Hi Guys, here is another Triumph building thread. I bought the bike back in 2009 in a pretty bad condition. I made a lowbudget rebuild to ride the bike and getting some experiences with brit-bikes. In the past years i made some modification and had lots of fun with it. But now its time to rebuild the bike again and put it into a real beauty ....

if you interested in some older pics you can check my blog:

This is how the bike looks when i bought it in January 2009. Pretty bad condition, not running, forward controls :-( .... But its a street legal hardtailed Triumph, in Germany hard to find!

the old oiltank was sittin' a little too low, so the chain was hittin' the tank. with a new oiltank by elswick cycles was enough clearance and even looks better!

Looks great, I like it. Will you paint the rear mudguard and oil tank the same colour as the fuel tank?

You thought it was in a state when you got it??? Nothing to how mine looked when I go it!

Cheers Dan.
