Been going to the Paris meet and Montreal for a few years and this year finally purchased a proper British motorcycle.
If anyone lives in the Durham region can answer some questions or would like help with a restoration you can contact me at email@example.com
Huh...I guess no one is near me?
From what I can see, I'd be very leary of restoring this bike. It looks good as is. Unless there is something wrong with the engine and it requires a rebuild, the rest of it appears sound.
I used to have some Triumph workshop manuals but can't seem to find them. I do have some Triumph specialized pullers and my be able to field some questions.
I'm in central Toronto.
Thanks Paul I really just want a very reliable safe running bike for 3 day camping trips...I like the dents and faded tank and will leave it as is. I've figured out most of the problems so far and it runs well...
i've got a small handful of 650/750 twins and triples and know them intimately, If you're hard up for company or need some help let me know - i'm in the the GTA but could be available weekends.
I live in Toronto and I have a 1977 Triumph Tiger 750, and several other British bikes. I would be happy to help. The bike looks great and 750 Triumph twins are usually pretty smooth and reliable. If you don't have the owners manual for that bike, I would suggest the first thing to do is get one from Walridge Motors and read it from cover to cover. It will give you a real good idea of what you need to do to keep it on the road and reliable. They were pretty good from the factory and I'm not a big fan of a lot of modifications that classic bike magazines recommend (their advertisers sell parts); mine still has points and I ride it a lot.
I live in the Newmarket area and have been restoring Brit bikes for 45 yrs or so. If I can help let me know , I'm very familiar with Triumphs.
