January 2003 - Speed Twin with a girder fork!

One thing you have to learn when you try to build a pre-war Triumph is patience. The post-war bikes aren't the easiest bikes when it comes to finding parts, but they are a walk-though-the-park compared to the pre-war bikes. These pics were taken almost a year after the ones from last post. Major improvement here is, of course, the girder front forks. Usually the main item missing from pre-war projects, the correct girder is made from pure unobtainum. Also seen in these pics is the Lucas D142 headlamp, and a real pre-war rear hub & brake.
