She's going on ebay tomorrow evening. If you're interested contact me ASAP
This week at the shop: Jessie hurt her paw and had to go to the vet, Dan's bike got hit by a car, and we finished Sean's Triumph Chopper.
Installed Sean's Triumph motor in his rolling chassis, built up a BSA A65 motor on the work bench, got a Triumph OIF frame powdercoated, installed a solo seat on the pre unit Triumph and smashed a burrito from the roach coach.
Finally scored a stock hard tail pre unit Triumph. I've been after one of these ever since the Ed Brooks auction. It has a wassel banana tank and an old bates seat. Also came with an extra sprung hub wheel and some other bits.
Drastic times calls for drastic measures. Only do this when your cyliders aren't budging and you don't have any special Triumph service tools. As was the case with this T140 Triumph Bonneville. Connect a tie down to the cylinders. Ratchet the motor up a few inches. Hit the motor with a block of wood- carefully. This works best if you have a second person to push down and steady the motor while the other hits it.
