Restoring A Classic Triumph Motorcycle

The 60’s, 70’s and beginning of the 80’s were the best decades for British motorcycle manufacturer Triumph. The demise of the company in 1983 re-enforced the legendary status of the brand and “Bonnies” are right now some of the most sought-after motorcycles for restoration or customization.

Since I know many of you are working on them for the first time, here is probably the best restoration guide for the Bonneville (Bonnie) and its single carb sibling, the TR6 (Tiger) This complete, just revised edition by Triumph expert David Gaylin, features 250 photos and extensive technical information to help you give a new life to a classic Triumph, years 1956 to 1983. Paperback 276 pages. $29.95.

    Had the workers taken over the Trident factory instead of the twin factory, and kept developing that three cylinder motor i doubt Triumph would have gone under the first time.

    But they are back now. And the new vertical twin is way cool.

    Looks like I’m gonna’ have to have this book. Had a TR6 back in the day and the hunts on to get another one…hopefully, the same one I used to own, but that’s probably a pipe dream.

    The first edition of Gaylin’s book is going for big bucks. I’m not surprised that the second edition is sold out at Amazon.
