There used to be an 850 "Thruxton" kit to fit 750 Triumph twins in the early 80's. I forget who was selling them, but I do know the electric starter on the Bonneville couldn't handle the higher compression (and my T160 still kicked its ass)

I did a review of the Thruxton way back in issue #46 (along with the Rocket 3 *wow*).
Around town the riding position was annoying, too much weight on the wrists, and your knees ended up against the cylinder head. They have these little wire stand-offs so you don't burn horizontal lines into your pants.

It has since become our best selling back issue, it must be my review eh?
