    If you'd let go of the cocktail shakers , I need a new set for the high-boy {sprayer]. They take the bark out of the V-four Ford industrial motor.

    This is gonna be fun..... my FIRST thought was about those apes.... man, they got some real real cred don't they!



    :evil


    and then the cocktails....they were my second thought!

    I just paid $25 for some old Triumph take-offs to put on my XS650, just for kicks, and they do a helluva job with a nice tone... KEEP 'EM!!

    Cleopatra Cheney Princess. We got her when the kid was almost six, so that makes her 13. That also accounts for the name.
    Schipperke's are wonderfully intelligent and energetic little dogs with a big heart. I wouldn't be without one.

    Can you tell me more about this picture? Are those nuts and bolts powder coated or painted?

    Can't wait to see the progress!

    Interested in this restore as I am doing the same thing with a 70 TR6C - the high pipe version. At pretty much the same spot - frame and various parts are powder coated and have put on swingarm and front forks. Just bought a wiring loom and trying to figure that out. Also will be tearing down the wheels and trying to rebuild on my own.

    I guess I need to start a thread on my TR6. After sitting for about 4 years I got some momentum and am spending time on the rebuild. Funds will dictate how far I get.

    Those look like new pistons without enough miles to have suffered a tuning problem.

    The previous owner thought it would be a good idea to try and fire her up after sitting for thirty years.
    She fired alright, but not for long.
