Surprising old Trumpet

Guy brought a '67 Triumph into the shop. Been sitting for 10 years. New carb,battery,clean the old plugs and 3 kicks and it ran. Little smokey and it's wet sumped. Now we get to tear it apart and restore. Think I'll make this a build thread. Pics later.



Sorry,cell phone image. I'll bring my camera in later.

That gives me hope, just got a 77 Bonnie that has sat for 15 years. Hope it's that simple for me...

Its an overpriced, under performing, uncomfortable OCC type trailer queen. But you could sell it for good money to an ignorant Dr/attorney type and by a great ADV bike with the profits.

It's actually The Discovery Channel's 20th Anniversary bike built by OCC. We have a contract with The Discovery Channel to take care of thier stuff.

More to come on the Triumph soon.

I was guessing and being a smart ass. Thought it looked like an OCC.

I just bought a 73 Tiger that has an exhaust system that looks just like that one. It is loud as it really has no baffling in it. If your doing a restore on it I suppose a stock dual exhaust will be going on it so it won't be an issue. Anyway a 2 into 1 just doesn't sound like a Triumph. Have fun

I'd say '69 or '70, assuming it belongs with that TLS brake/linkage combo.
