I love good resurrection thread, So here it is my latest project as the title says 1996 Triumph Speed Triple. I picked this beast up a couple of days ago without much of a plan of what to do with it. Having had three previous speed triples, a '99, '03 and currently a '97 t509. (not to mention 11 previous Hinckley Triumphs, non newer that 2003) I've never had a first gen speedy but have always admired the muscular look of them. This one popped up on CL IT was local and best of all, it was cheap, so I went to have a look. Turns out the owner was a family friend from the past. Long story short, we struck a deal and I picked her up the next day. She had been sitting for a while, was in pretty rough shape and wouldn't run. Call me crazy but I have a real soft spot for these early Hinckley Triumphs. "What are you going to do with that!?" Was my wife's reaction upon seeing it. Good question. Now that I've got her home and running, here is what I'm planning: She isn't really worth a whole lot with a rebuilt salvage title, but she runs and rides so good that it would be shame to part her out, so the plan is to build a speed triple challenge replica. As I make a list of what needs done, I can see that there is allot of work ahead and it may take a while, but I'm really going to have fun with this one!! Stay tuned...... loaded up and heading home. immediately removed the bags, windshield and re-installed the tail section. the better side of things. some of the more interesting mods!! this is what I'm going for, only for the street!!!
