Triumph 650 Thunderbird

This is how my 650 came out of the factory back in '66
                                                                And how I got her
I wish she looked like the first pic but than again it would be a shame to rebuild such a beauty....

Engine update

Gearbox in
                                         Hepolite high compression pistons , racing cams
                                                            Alloy clutch with beltdrive
 I hope the tappetblock (and other parts) arrives next week so I can put the cilinder on, set the timing and finish this baby. I'll be mounting the engine in the frame this week but first install the front break.

650 engine coming back together

I had to order a new tappet guide block because it was worn. But there is still enough to do....
I brought the cilinderhead away to put in some new and bigger valves.

18" QD rear wheel

I bought this nice Triumph 18" qd rear wheel on the net for a nice price.
I'll use it on the 650 when the tire is wasted.

650 update

Today we installed the new bearings and bushes in the engine cases and gearbox.
Had some troubles with rear wheel. The new sprocket/drumbrake seemed a little different and needed to be fixed on the lathe.
                                             Also mounted the powerbox behind the engine

We got a roller

I need to do some little things on the roller. Actually they shortened the front end to much, they cutted of the double. So I had to solve that problem and came with this stance. Lucky enough the front suspension is pretty hard. Tomorrow I'll pick up the rest of the engine parts so I can start working on the engine this Saturday.
