My 2nd trusty KLR650 is now out of my life. One less bike, one less registration, one less insurance payment. And best of all, now I can use a little of the money and finish my bikes. This will pay for all the '62 Triumph work I have left. I also want to get a functioning front end for the '55 so it can be a roller.
I need someone out there in Triumph land to tell me if what I have currently looks correct for a '55 Thunderbird.
This is the correct wheel for the Tbird. I just can't get the brake plate off. It will need new bearings and an axle at the minimum.
These are the yokes I have, no numbers, but it uses the u-bolts, so they might be right.
The damper assembly, I think I have most of the pieces, the knob is some crappy aftermarket p.o.s., but those are easy to find for $15.
These are the fork lowers I have. I'm pretty sure these may be for a factory rigid, but I'm not sure, again no numbers. I'd of course needs the fork tubes and all the internals. It may be easier to wait for an entire front end to show up on ebay, but if anyone has a lead, contact me!
