Then Hurricane Katrina submerged it under 20 feet of water. It sat in about 3 feet of water for almost a month before I could get it out. Lost several other bikes along with some cars. I was determnied to salvage my Triumph so I took it down, cleaned everything and stored the parts. I started slowly rebuilding it again from the frame up. The saltwated had did a number on most of the bike. (You may notice the front disc brake, it's from a newer model)

Last year I finally got it back on the road again.

It's a sweet ride and I guarantee I will not leave it again!!!
