New Triumph Speed Kit, Tiger & Trophy for 1951

One of the best looking Triumph parts ever made.

How to set up your T100 race bike by Triumph man Pete Colman.

This is my alloy close pitch fin motor. It's a 1957 TR5 basically unmessed with since the early 1970's and is in complete ready to restore condition. The carb on it now is a rare Amal 289 with a custom made thick alloy velocity stack, but I also have a dual carb manifold for it and a matching pair of chopped float monoblocs off of a 1967 Daytona 500 that I want to use on it. I need to get a couple other projects out of the way before I get to this one. It's currently stored vertically against the back wall of my garage with a cycle tie down strap holding the neck up.
