Clicking on the PICTURES will make them larger and clearer.


According to the speedometer, the bike has only 12,000 +- miles. When I found it residing in the Mid-Ohio Motorcycle Flea Market, I had to have this bike. I inspected it, road it around the flea market and found the rusty old bike with a strong original engine. What was nicer, was all of the wiring, was original. Not “cobbled” or altered but all in one piece. The tank and fenders were a sight, rusty, dull black  and totally unappealing. However, it was the identical motorcycle that I had in the late 1960’s while stationed in San Diego with the U.S. Navy.  At that time, I had plenty of weekend days to explore southern California’s mountains, coastline and deserts.                        I remember the bike as strong and dependable and spent many of hours on the saddle exploring and commuting to the Navy base. So Far, my riding  on this bike has been limited to short hops on the road and through the back woods paths. It sure is a fun ride. When the movie “The Great Escape” with Steve McQueen riding a triumph, it was this bike. As of this date,   April 4 2010,  the finish work that needs to be done is the polishing of the chain cases, new pet cocks for fuel (leak slightly). There is a New Dunlop Trials  Tire on the rear, and a 50% good Dunlop on the front. The Tach cable needs a new insert. I did the painting myself, with Lacquer Metallic Green tank, center trim on the fenders and silver and gold stripes on the fender, Looks excellent. runs great. as of 4 12 10 I have begun to polish the right cases on the bike, looks good and spiffy. Every night, it leaves a oil droplet to mark it’s spot.
