WOW, look at this totally cool stocker. It is a 1953 Triumph Thunderbird. Guy calls me up and say he has this bike and wants to get it running. I ask if it is all together and he says "yes." Of course I don't believe him because everyone says that. Then he shows up and this thing is NUT AND BOLT together and about 98% stock after all these years. Un-freakin-believeable!! So he wants to get it going for his brother for Christmas. A completely noble endeavor. The mag does not spark, but I clean the carb, set the valves, adjust the transmission and put in a good sparking mag and BAM it fires up third kick. Bo is the brother who painstakingly put it together from the grandfather's basketcase and Jason is the guy who brought it in. It was GREAT to fiddle with this old stocker and get it back on the road. Thanks for bringing it in, Jason!! What a great tribute to brotherly love.
