Hey Cafe Racer,

I bought this Triumph back in 2007 off a friend & turned it into a multi-trophy winning “daily rider.” Its my only cycle, & being a mechanic by trade, I break it down quite often to keep it running tip top… I tend to “get on her” and with that comes some issues occasionally. I enjoy every second riding it here in New England and I enjoy Cafe Racer TV! I’m a man of few words so I’ll let the specifications speak for her.

SPECS:
1972 T120V (modified to 750cc) Morgo big bore kit
CP1000 gear upgrade in the tranny
Full Kibblewhite top end (push-rods, valves, springs,cups, keepers)
Valve & cylinder bore work by (R. Johnson & Sons: Warwick, RI)
crank balancing & con-rod blueprinting by (Britech)
cams by Megacycle (510-65)
case vented via nose-cone & NUPRO 1/3psi check-valve back into the OIF
Gauge holder by (Triples Rule) modified slightly
saddle by (Hotwing glass)
electronic ignition (Boyer Bransdon MIII)
Hagon shocks
Progressive fork springs with leak-proof seals & gaiters up front
Hand made stainless steel brake & shifter levers (me)
All polishing, adjustment, & final assembly done by me
I’ve never had it dyno’d, so I don’t know the Hp @ the rear wheel nor the torque curve, but clocked the bike @ 120mph alongside a friends vehicle.

Thanks!

Stevo
