I need a motor for my Triumph project, and have been having a hell of a time trying to find one for a reaonable price. I'm now thinking that I might as well get myself a set of cases and start there. Seems like every individual piece is available... I guess I'm just looking for some thoughts here... I'm a novice builder and ideally would like to start with a complete piece. I do have complete and running TR6C that I could use for reference. A few bux over a long period is a little easier to swallow than a big nut up front. Any advice on building from scratch as opposed to rebuilding a mostly complete unit?

Thanks!

I would start with a complete motor. I have one that was almost complete, but was missing a couple of small items. I had to get some rocker boxes, found them on eBay a few weeks ago, spent more than what I wanted for them, and I still haven't received them. I think that fucker that I bought from screwed me. If your out there reading this, send my shit NOW!!!! I'm sure that most of the guys would tell you to get a complete one. It just depends on what you want to get out of your motor.

Definitely buy as complete a motor as you can find, then rebuild it.

You will get nickel and dimed to death putting together one just from a set of cases unless you have parts motors sitting around to rob stuff from.

Way cheaper and faster to get one complete.
