Triumph T110 project

My friend Pete's T110 is making progress and looking great,especially when you see what he started with. I admire him (and anyone who, in particular, start with very little) for his patience and the hunting down of parts at autojumbles and by word of mouth, to restore it back to it's former glory. 
   I'm fairly sure that I've posted the 'before' pics before, but  posting up again along with a very current pic puts it all in to perspective. Pretty sure that he now has all / most parts to finish it. However it won't be having the original remote float carb as apparently a price of £600+ is the going rate.

Bristol Bike Show pics

The weather was decent and the turnout very good. Not so much in the way of Guzzi's and Cafe Racers in general, as to be expected,but still some interesting bikes.

The Bristol Bike Show

This Saturday is the Bristol Bike Show. It is located in the centre of the city - the same streets as the Auto Italia Day.  It is usually very well attended with a big mixture of bikes inc Classics,Customs Choppers, Specials etc. I seem to remember mention of there being a Bobber competition this year?
