I'm 6'5" and 210# and have been accused of looking like a grasshopper on my Thruxton. Its a little cramped. Even so, its a fabulous bike and not one that I will part with soon. Great in the twisties and around town. I just don't ride it far from home.

Thanks! It doesn't do much for wind protection, but sure looks the part.

They're oldies, but goodies.

Ooooooooooookay ... I'm officially in love.

This looks stangely similar to that sweet Satin Black unit you posted back on page 2 of this thread! I thought I loved that one, but this is over the top! I see you've made a few detail changes since 2006 ... black bars, stainless Arrow exhaust, black headlamp bucket, the little Made in England sticker (am I missing anything?), and last but not least BRG! WOW!

The upholstery on the seat looks more smoothly contoured, too. Did you have it redone or is it new? Also, the bars ... are they flat tracker style or the Western bars, I really don't know the difference?

You have great taste, my friend! And I like the other selections in your stable, too!

Your '69 Bonnie is gone?

Thanks much for the compliments.. You have a good eye for details. It's the same bike.. with the mods you mention above, and a couple minor other additions (you missed the JMC aluminum swingarm and the front fender).

The bars are HD 'flattrack' bars; very comfortable, and they fit the bike's image to a 'T'. I sold the '69 to a buddy in California. He added it to his growing stable of vintage Brit bikes; it went to a good home. I hated to let it (and two other bikes) go, but I simply ran out of room.

Well, how do ya like that? ... two of the most obvious things and I miss them and catch the little sticker instead! So much for my eye for detail ... HA!

Have you checked the weight of the bike now compared to the 451# dry Triumph quotes? Gotta be less with that swingarm and the alloys, etc., etc...

'76 with a few changes. Think I'm done for now. It's a blast to ride one of these when all is right with the machine and the sun is shining.
