I found this site over 2 years ago and since then I`ve been visiting here on (almost) daily basis. My fever for old British bikes went so far that I just had to get one. Damn. :D

It´s a 1956 Triumph Tiger T110 with Morgo 750 cc big bore kit, Morgo oil pump, Nourish half-race cam, Joe Hunt magneto and Alton generator. Did I remember to mention that it`s my first bike?

It´s going to be a long and rocky road ahead me. I know nothing about bikes or building them. Hell, I don´t even know how to weld. Still I`m determined to learn and succeed. I`m not trying to reach for the moon here or build anything outrageously original. I just want to have a good looking bike that rides straight and sounds good (at this point my friends would tell me to sell Triumph and buy a new bike)... but I think I got a good piece of metal here to start with. What do you think?

And something about the owner: I`m 29, I live on western coast of Finland and I work as a... well, I work for the government. ;) Apologies in advance for any misspelled words and stupid questions.

Here´s my beauty:



Cheers,
Masse
