My Triumph

Hey guys, new around here. I just moved to Houston from SoCal. I have been building all sorts of two wheeled machines for years and just picked up a new project last week. It's a 1977 triumph Tiger 750. I have been after triumphs for years and finally got one that isn't just a pile of parts. The bike is pretty nice so I am going to start with a few little mods like clip ons and a seat and see where it goes frame there. Here is a pic the day I picked it up. More to come very soon.

Thanks. I got that helmet as a hand me down with my first bike. I love that thing but the interior needs a little work.

Cool, love the new seat! My eyes can't tell from the pic; but, is it a Thruxton seat?

No idea, but it looks like you could own it if you wanted to.
