1958 Triumph Pre-Unit

Well it is almost a new year and it's time for a new start.  I was able to find a titled Triumph TR110 frame and a cherry set of 58 TR6 cases.  I was born in 1958 so this is a project I have wanted to do for quite some time.  I was going to build a unit twin TR6 project but as the saying goes "been there and done that".

I am still a bit undecided on the style I am after, rigid bobbers have been done so much that they almost are common place.  I am thinking more on the lines of a T100 style 1950's racer.  I may go with a rear swing arm section but we'll see.

Here are some pictures I got from The Jockey Journal of both styles.
