I've had this Triumph for a while and have been slowly nicking off the bits it doesn't need. I bought the Meridan shop manual for it so I could sync the amal mkIIs, but I'm a visual learner and it's a little slim on diagrams. Is there anyone in or around Denver/Boulder who wants to mentor me?
NICE looking bike, welcome to the forum/assylum....

I had the seat custom made. I took a pan from a king and queen seat and channeled 1.5 inches out of the middle of it to narrow it to about 11 inches. I relocated the hinges back to their original locations. The seat was made by Lawrence Marine and Auto Trim in Chicago. They do great work and are nice to work with. Here's another pic.

Chromesux, that's pretty much my favourite Harley look. Nice.

That's what I was going for with my '87 Heritage.
