The never-produced 350 Bandit?
I have an old Cycle World with a story about it and the Triumph version. Can't recall what the Triumph was called.
edit, actually I stand corrected, BSA Fury and Triumph Bandit
As a member of the So Cal Norton Owners Club I thought I would pass this along:
Southern California Norton Owners Club
November 5 – 38th Annual Hansen Dam Ride & Show
Join the Southern California Norton Owners Club's for their biggest event of the year, the 38th Annual Hansen Dam Ride & Show! Get that classic Brit bike ready for show or for the road and join us for a day of fun. Here's a chance to chat with fellow riders, kick tires, and be part of the largest gathering of British motorcycle enthusiasts in the West. Several hundred vintage and rare bikes will be on hand.
There will be a Peoples' Choice judged bike competition this year, complete with trophies for Best Norton, Best Triumph, and so on.
We meet at the lower lot. Enter on Dronfield Avenue off of Osbourne Street. Festivities start at 7:30 am so be there early to get a good spot for your bike. There will be T-shirts, patches, coffee, donuts, and burgers for sale to support the club. The SCNOC Hansen Dam T-shirts have become prized possessions for those who own them from previous years. The ones this year are once again awesome.
The exciting highlight of the day will be the annual ride up into the scenic San Gabriel mountains and Angeles Crest leaving from the parking lot at 10 am sharp and returning to Hansen Dam in the early afternoon for the show. Ride maps will be distributed at the meet and will take into account any road closures. Riders on British iron will get free pins at the end of the ride.
Southern California Norton Owners Club. Ride hard.
Yesterday was another awesome fall day in Ohio. Went for a 100 mile lunch ride to meet a couple of Brit bike friends. Had a nice lunch and a great ride on the Gold Star. For the roads I was on, would have been tough to find a more suitable bike.
Along the Tuscarawas River on the way home:
This is one Brit bike that is truly brilliant. Even today.
Did you lose your primary inspection plug?
And aren't you running electronic ignition?
Yes and yes.
I had even checked that plug before I left home. About the 3rd one I have lost. Guess it is time for more extreme measures!

Try a wipe of silicon sealant on the threads. I've used that or a dab of blue Loctite and both have worked fine. You do need a close fitting steel driver to stop the plug slot getting damaged as it takes a small amount of force to break the adhesion.
There are locktites designed to be heated so that they release.

Triumphs have always been cool bikes.
