Gwladys the T100SR

This is Gwladys the 1966 Triumph T100SR.
Why call it Gwladys? When I first got it it needed a little work and I was talking to my Mam and asked her if she’d ever been for a ride on a bike as there are numerous pictures of her sitting on various bikes my brother or myself owned, her response was ‘no not unless they’ve got training wheels you won’t get me on one’. After a brief discussion she agreed to let me take her for a ride around the front and back garden when the trumpy was finished.
Mam passed away before I got it finished so in honour of her I called the bike “Gwladys” and told family members that it must never be sold, just handed down – I’ll come back and haunt the bugger that sells it after I pop my clogs!!

Yet Another Toy – VN1500

Added another bike to the stable, a 2000 VN1500 Kawasaki – so that’s the ’95 VN800A and the ’66 Triumph Tiger – oh also picked up a Behringer Neutron, not a bad bit of kit for 500 bux.
This is the VN sitting at the auction place – not too shabby for $1,950 ๐Ÿ˜‰

Korg Gone

Sold the Korg and bought a Kurzweil PC3x – that damn Korg was just too big for in here.

Korg Oasys

Yes, I bit the bullet and bought one. I’m as tight as a ducks arse (water tight) when it comes to money so it’s taken me an age to fall over one that was priced right, at $500 for an Oasys 88 that needs $12.00 worth of HDD is a bargain ๐Ÿ™‚ hell it goes beyond bargain LOL

New Stable Buddy For The Tiger

Picked up this 1995 VN800A for the princely sum of $1600 – it doesn’t look like this anymore, repainted it black then covered it in coarse metal-flake followed by 6 coats of Candy Apple Blue, 12″ up apes on 2.5″ risers and a braided brake line.
Not too sure if I’m going to airbrush it yet, only time and boredom will tell.
Oh the joys of playing silly buggers ๐Ÿ˜›

Fatboy Gone In Comes The Triumph!

Didn’t take me long to get shot of the Harley Fatboy and go back to where I started which was a Triumph. Bought an older restored 1966 Triumph T100, needs a few odds and sods but I prefer this over the HD any day.

Bit more work done on the Fatboy.

While I’m waiting for Outer West Sandblasting to finish everything (the fatboy and the VL parts) I got carried away and tidied up the wiring (yes Mark, solder not connectors ), got the headlight sorted and working, took bloody ages – turns out it helps if you earth it drowned everything that needed it in red loctite oh and found an awesome carby return spring mount (see pic).

Slowly but shortly, hopefully it’ll all be done and back on the road within the next 7 to 10 days.
