Top Trump

one of the best looking bikes last weekend was this superlatively detailed late 70’s Triumph.   
Centrally mounted tachometer bolted onto the usually handlebar clamp holes. The clip-ons mounter directly to the fork tubes. The sage colored tree is a nice touch.

 Swing out kicker to clear the rearset pegs. Crinkle textured powder coating covers are a smart touch. Oil piping run in neat ship-shape fashion.   
So clean it makes my grubby oil burned motor look like a disheveled scoot…

 

Wee oil gauge… Again, blackened valve covers…nice grey tank… Everything so deliberate. Tiger head with two carbs.
  
All in all a pretty decent machine! 10/10 in my books.
