I bought this bike many years ago from a guy in Oregon. Upon receiving the bike I realized it had been sitting for a while. So I removed the carbs, cleaned them and put stock needles and jets in them. I also removed the aftermarket cans and replaced them with the stock Triumph cans. The bike ran great and rode the bike for several years. Last year I purchased a new bike and wasn’t riding the Triumph at all, so when I took it out to do my Spring cleaning and get it ready to ride – it needed a few things. The front calipers were locked up and one of the rotors was cracked up front. I was hoping I could just remove the caliper pistons, PB Blast and I’d be good, but not the case. I never got around to fixing the brakes, so the bike sat. The bike is actually quite fun to ride and have it set up more as a dual sport bike. The 3 cylinder motor has plenty of low end torque and revs up nicely. It’s a very “agricultural” sounding motor. If you’ve ridden a GS or any Triumph triple of mid to late 90s vintage you know what I mean. It needs some minor work to get it running 100%. It currently has 18,388 miles on it.
