Great thread. The more of these I read the more I realize my life isn't complete without at least one Meriden Triumph.

Excellent stuff Kev - I'm really hankering for a speed twin 5T around 1940. Of course not so sure my retirement plan is going to stretch that far ... but we'll see

Thanks.
Sigh.

PM sent - I find what you're doing very interesting. Sorry the collective armchair experts chased you away.

You bet I'll send you a PM. I was going to send my friend here, he is much into them old Triumphs but I know what the "Old Fool" thinks of this forum in general. I tought he could make an exception , I guess not we will have to follow along somewhere else.

sure wish you would reconsider .. a LOT of folks was enjoying and learning from your very well put together posts with clear instructions and clear pictures.

don't let the hecklers win .. grow thicker skin instead.. to me this is just a normal part of Adv. most forums are regulated way too tight. thick skin is the price to pay for a loosely moderated forum like Adv

I wish you'd reconsider, too, the tech articles on British bikes are getting thin in this new century. I sure enjoyed yours.

OK, that's exactly the reason why we have
1) places like Jo Momma on ADV
2) the rule enforcing civility in the on topic forums.

It's a perfect example how asshattery, name calling and thread shitting can result in chasing good people off. Bans have been dished out now.
