The ol' bitch is finally home

I stopped runnin' her last fall... Wouldn't go into gear. I finally broke down in March and took her to the shop, since rippin' down engines isn't exactly my specialty. Well, lemme rephrase that. I'll rip anything apart. It's gittin' it back together that causes problems.

But I digress. Turns out I had some moisture in the case, and the clutch plates had all rusted together.

I told the shop no hurry, since I had other bikes in reserve and Triumph parts are a complete bitch to git. So a hefty bill and several months later, I finally got 'er paid off and picked 'er up.

Damn near forgot how to ride 'er. But lemme tell ya... For not really seein' much action since last October, she sure didn't waste much time gittin' to 90mph as I roared outta the parkin' lot.

I love that ol' bitch. It's gonna be a sad day when she officially retires.

  1. Nice. I want to fix up my dad's old 1979 Honda 750 for him. But that would be a project of Chip Foose proportions. For now it is just sitting and rusting.
