Trispark for 3 Cylinder

The new Tri-spark ignition for Tridents and BSA Rocket 3 is fully contained under the points cover! This is the easiest to install. Tri-Spark¬†ignitions fire each 12v coil individually for a more concise idle and better throttle response. In addition this is the only ignition for the E-start T160 that allows the bike to start…

Desert Sled Parts Coming Soon!

We are moving quickly forward on our Desert Sled components! We have these sample Superior copy pipes as supplied in the late 40's through mid 1950's. These were really designed for Rigid Triumph but my long suffering 1954 T110 Tiger desert sled is what I had to fit them to. Pictures soon of them on…

IMI Components

Bottom picture is taken at IMI Components in 1968. IMI was the parent company of Amal Carburetors and that wonderful machine was the Rube-Goldberg contraption that machined every single Amal concentric ever supplied on a British motorcycle as standard! I had the honor of watching it in action, all 502 solenoids merrily clicking away! When…

RIP Cliff Mahjors

Cliff Mahjors was an icon in the industry, famous for his horde of British motorcycles and parts and equally famous for his tirades on gold and silver and monetary policy. I was once cornered in his shop and "educated" about the value of paper money.…

Clark Tribute Bike pt. 2

So here is the start of the Clarke tribute bike folks. I will post photos as things progress. I bought this carcass from British Motorbikes in Burbank before they closed. The bottom end of the engine was an Ebay purchase for $150. The cylinder came from the Stafford autojumble in the UK in 2007. The…

Clark Tribute Bike pt. 1

I have started my latest project. I was intrigued by the photo of Freddie Clarke's Speed Twin racer from 1939 and thought it might be fun to build a tribute bike. Seems strange to build a bike around a pair of silencers but years ago we had a batch of Brookland Cans made and they…

Cub #9

I had the good fortune to find 3 Triumph Cub 200 cc bikes at an estate sale in Huntington Beach, thanks to my lifelong friend Jeff. The 64 Mountain Cub was the best of the lot and with a bit of effort even tuns over and shifts. Seems the big end is gone though, who…

Triumph 4 Transport?

Anyone else riding a triumph for regular transport? I have been using my 1970 Triumph with 1979 T140 motor for my regular commuter. Observations on doing this, the old Triumph is more fun than my new one, gets better gas mileage than my new one (47 MPG), Uses cheaper tires and they last longer, uses…
