Triumph Speed Triple



I'm so happy again
Bought this Speed Triple from 1999 today.
When it was build for the first time
I was very interested in the bike
I loved the looks and ofcourse it had to be a green one....
Now I can say: I have one ;-)

The birth of a MONSTER


Ok not really a caferacer in the way I have them normally,
but this bike was ready for to bring it back to live again.
She was standing outside in all kinds of weather
and the condition was poor.
It didn't start well and a lot more wasn't that good at all
People said I was crazy buying it in this condition.....
But you know me, If I want something to be done
it's gonna happen and this was one of the fastest bikes for years....
Well first rule of all
it had to be safe to drive again and  a low budget bike ......
here's the result of this fast MONSTER

Norton P11 from 1967 ( parts basket case )

I have a dream......
I want to restore mine Norton P11 from 1967
I only got a not complete basket case with old rusty parts


What do I have:

frame with custom papers from usa
swinging arm
oil tank
battery case
footpegs front and back
gear box
engine with cilinder (barrel)
petrol tank
front hub
high pipes
rear brake and foot brake
and more but not really can use that

So if the engine and the gearbox is ok...I might start collecting the other parts
Just because this a very special Norton.

So you can say I'm looking for some things, mayby you got it?  ;-)

phot of the very special foot pegs
 
update 29-6-2014
 
here a picture of the high pipes
this week I also get te chrome silincers for the p11
 

 




Here's my new ride: Triumph TR6R 650cc Tiger

I knew that this bike was for sale because  I also knew the owner and he was a man above the 70, and couldn't start the bike anymore.
Even got problems with his wrist and so the clutch was a hell for him.
Always stood in the garage and you can see that at the bike
Well look for yourself
