I have a front wheel from what I believe to be a '71 or later Triumph, using the small, 7" drum that is conical shaped. It came laced with a 20" rim, making me think it's from a TR5T, trophy trail bike. I'm interested in using it, but would like to see the forks that would match. Anyone have any of these parts they could post a picture of?

Thanks,
Bob

What is the little downward 'hook' for on the right side fork lower? Most of the early 70's era seem to have it, but as far as I can tell, it's not utilized...

I wonder if that leg is from a 650 oif bike, I think the only difference was that brake anchor.
That little hook (that does look like a brake anchor) shows up on all kinds of TR5T's and B50T's... Maybe it's a remnant from another model?

The fork leg is a common part for Triumph/BSA in the early 70s. The hook is for the larger 8" conical drum.

Since we already ruined fuelrod's thread, check out this 400-19 Firestone I put on a Hornet.........kind of a contrast:
Looks pretty stupid to me! Poor Hornet!!

It is a big sumbitch, but almost exactly same dimensions as the original K70. Don't understand Robbie's rude comment. Sorry to fuelrod for muckin up his thread.
