Got fed up looking at this thing so I got it running yesterday. Still can't kickstart it with my dodgy knee so I have to bump start it.

Sounds like a real old Brit single and loads of fun to ride but I think I'll try and move it along and get another Triumph. Maybe a real Bonnie.

I sort of half finished it. I'd have liked to have spent more time but it's got a current rego and wof so it might as well be out on the road. Now I have to get the Panhead out so that's today's plan. Laughing

It owes me 10 which I think is too much but I can't aford to lose money just now. I'd swap it for a good Bonnie. Or else I'll keep on working on it to make it fast. You can do a lot with these little singles. Its still got all the emissions crap on it. That would be next to go.

Yeah its a Nitro Head seat. Very hard but a great shape.
I kind of like the big light as it looks like an old Brit. It was an accident though as I had to use the original Yam light on the W650 to fit the headlight brackets that went with the clipons I had for it. The Kawa light was the only one I had spare.

Sorted. I found an Australian forum that said start it without the choke (different from what the factory says). Starts second kick now. Surprised

I was going to bring it into work this morning but I thought I'd look like a dick in office worker clothes so I came in on the Thruxton instead (its stock so I would have looked like a dick anyway!!!!).
I'll ride the Yam in on Friday when I can wear jeans and jandals Laughing
