The Little One - Up For Grabs -


I helped the guy that found it a couple years ago locate some of the parts needed to bring it back to how it was. As far as I know he hasn't messed with it. Lets see it go to a good home.

Q Air Filter available for '54-'59 Triumph's

For the first time I found a Q air filter at a swap meet. Only two came my way a couple years ago when I did the first post on Q filters, but no more until this years Clubmans's swap. By test fitting it on various Triumph frames I have, I discovered that it is a bolt on for 1954-'59 Triumph 650 & 500 frames. I've got it listed for guys out there that might be desperate for one HERE or let me know if you have something neat for trade. Sorry Dave, another one with a plain cover!

San Jose Clubman's Show & Swap 2012

Another kick ass Clubman's Show & Swap. Here's some of the bikes I saw that I liked.

The modern, light weight disc brakes are right at home on this beast.



1955 TR5


1957 TR6

Almost got it right. Ditch that huge headlight, shorten the rear fender, and remove those godawfull stick on tank badges. Other than that a solid build :-)

Street Tracker

Might have been an old desert racer with that Lucas magneto case conversion. Nicely done street bike, the crap on and around the bike didn't make for a good show display tho.

Superbly built TriBsa.

This was the best deal of the day I saw. If I had a little money to burn I would have scooped it up. Kickass period paint on a clean trail bike that looks like it could be running for not much $$$ for only $1600 is a sweet deal in my book. The 24oz Sierra Nevada Pale Ale bottles for $5 was a good deal too.

Sorry, No bolt on bobbers worthy of consideration.

There was a survivor showbike there too that I will do a seperate post on soon...

It was good meeting some of you guys for the first time and seeing old friends too. Thanks for the words of support. For the rest of the people that couldn't make it to the swap I have some of the neat parts I found up for bid now HERE.
