Well the Triumph is 99.99% finished, apart from the engine strip-down to try and address the oil leaks :D . Came up quite nice from what is was.

What can I do next I wonder.

Right on SMIFFY, hoping it will get me to the Skerries Road Races in July.

Anyone else fancy a run over to Ireland (safety in numbers approach)

Cheers Zunspec

RC30 I wish, and it wouldn't be mouldering in the corner if it was :D

One of the two NC30s I have. Buggers to work on and the carbs get blocked if you leave them for any time. They deserve some TLC I'm ashamed to say.

Cheers Zunspec

Hi Gilly,

I can't wait to take it for a proper shake down ride, got to get an MOT first.

Cheers Zunspec

Hiya Paul,

It's going to the Bristol Classic Bike Show on the 18-19 Feb (I get a free exhibitors car pass and two free wrist-bands for the weekend :D ) and then I shall be dis-assembling the engine to try and sort the oil leaks :D :D :D . It's now ready for the MOT but I'm going to wait a few weeks when I re-new my insurance so that it can be added to the policy.

Cheers Geoff
