Triumph Thunderbird 1950 first model considered one of the 20th century's most iconic motor cycles.
I have reconditioned the motor including the following, sludge trap cleaned out, new main bearings, new plus 40 pistons, new valves and guides I measured the big ends they are within tolerance 1.5 thou clearance, installed bearings in the gearbox and reconditioned the forks. There is a new carb and I spent over $1000 reconditioning the MK2 sprung hub including bearings, sprocket, covers, springs, plates, C clip and anchor.
New fuel taps and cables.
Rear guard upper section is reproduction it actually fits and looks good. I have new front stays and a tail light coming next week. The timing gears are noisy they are the ones that came with the motor I have another set that I will supply or install depending on time. The bike is not wired. The tank is in poor shape I repaired two of thew parcel rack mounts it looks very rough. I have installed a liner kit and the tank holds fuel.
Missing tool box and tank badges both are available from local and international suppliers.
