     I remember Triton's mine was a wide line featherbed frame with a T110 engine cannabilised to Thruxton spec, all the lads used to say I just don't know how you get through the bends that quick possibly it was something to  do with the absolute rubbish drum front brake (Ho,Ho,Ho). Part exed it at Bill Smiths in Aigburth for a T140 Bonnie that had a locked gearbox that they couldn't fix so Faz bought a manufacturers workshop manual stripped down the outer casing to find that two of the pawls that allowed the gear lever to move up and down were in the wrong way round with the bevel upside down. 30 minutes new gasket change all the oils bingo.
     Oh how nice to have 20/20 hindsight!
        Cheers,
            Faz. :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))

Agh, Tritons, happy days. Here's one I built in an earlier life. Courtesy of the Barber Museum Alabama where she now resides.

Jerry , congratulations on building a beautiful bike . Unfortunately for me the gear-levers on the wrong side . The thread got alittle side tracked after I was extracting the urine from Faz . Like Pete I raced jap stuff , after all I ran a motorcycle shop for nearly twenty years , and being very lucky my house looks out onto
" Oliver's Mount " racing circuit .
