  2. Hi Pedro Welcome to the forum. It has gone quiet lately, so be patient if you require answers to anything. There is also a Facebook page, with the same name, started by one of the members of this site so sign in there as well if you do fb Some great biking roads down your way. I drove from Lisbon into Seville and back via Faro. I spent the journey wishing I was on the bike.

    Feel your pain bud. My auld Trident is burning oil so a top end overhaul is required. Due to the alleged fragility of these bikes I do not have the confidence to do I myself. Best case, new valves, guides etc. Worst the above plus rebore. Cost in 4 figures Luckily I can still use it (if the weather wasn't so bad). Provisionally booked in for last October but the guy had a health scare, so now maybe mid March Auld bikes, eh

I have owned one of the earlier Hinckley Triples and can assure you it was poles apart from the Meriden bikes. Talking of Meriden bikes, yours must have had a bent frame or summit because I have found all my twin Triumphs to be easy to throw around bends. Granted the oil loss concerns, but again I found it relatively easy to keep them oil tight (other than a push rod tube weep, but that goes without saying ) Best of luck on your search and sta
