Hello all,

I'm new to this bike stuff so I'll probably ask stupid questions. Please be patient with me. Always thought I wanted an old Harley but I sure can't afford it right now. So I've been checking out the Brit bikes. They're pretty cool and don't cost too much yet.

I'll try attaching some pics of the Triumph I picked up a few months ago. It's titled as a 1970 and I know it's a Bonneville engine. Don't know about the frame though. I'm thinking it might be a Yamaha. Any ideas would be welcome. I know it ain't much, but I got it pretty cheap. At least it's a smaller project than the Model A that's taking up the rest of the garage space.

Don't know if these pics made it. This didn't work quite like it did for me on the HAMB. No little paper clip icon on the post new thread page.

Told you I'd ask stupid questions.

if ya REALLY want an old harley ya can find one affordably if ya poke around enough. if yer biuldin' a brit bike in the meanwhile you'lle learn alot abot bikes,but ya wont have a hardly. you'lle most likely end up bein' a brit bike fan!!!!!!
if ya really want a hardly buy/build one. if ya wanna get in the street now buy any old shit that runs and is sorta legal. and than build what ya realy want.

and maybe sell the trump junk to me???
