Hi everyone this is to introduce myself, I am no spring chicken but have had classic british café racers for a long time and at the moment have a 1960 Triton which is a hybrid Norton slimline featherbed frame and a pre unit 650 triumph bonneville engine and box uprated to 750, I have joined because lately I have been drawn to an early R1, I rode my mates a few months ago and what power I felt 16 again but doubt I have a 16 yr old's bottle anymore, anyway any guidance and advice welcomed and best place for insurance as the company I am currently with only deal with pre 80 stuff and do not have or give no claims discount

Greetings mr C.F

 

Yeah as drewpy said feel free to post some pictures of your triton, we'd love to see it

obviously a man of discerning taste, an early R1 would be a great investment and a joy to ride  :welcome:

Hi and welcome to the YOC, one of my first bikes was a Hagen framed pre-unit triumph bonny, nasty beast that tried to kill me at every opportunity, well I was only 16 or so at the time, look forward to the pictures of the Triton tho, featherbed frame and a good Triumph engine was the mark of the true biker back in the day. :D
