Back wheel

Managed to get the lacing pattern on the back wheel correct after the third attempt! Now just needs to be balanced.

  3. Hello! I found your blog through Triumphrat.net forums! It's kind of astounding that you are restoring your father's 55 triumph that had parts laying in containers for 30 years and ...my father and I have just started getting all the parts together that he has had laying around for 30 years to restore his 55 triumph.

    And it's also a t110 Tiger. I'm not joking!!
    Here's a link to our thread on triumphrat.net http://www.triumphrat.net/members-restoration-and-rebuild-projects/289017-dads-1955-triumph-t110-project-new-to-this-site.html

    There's another link in our thread on those forums to another forum where I have all of the pictures. (There are a lot)

    If you could is there a way I could contact you privately, as I see you have been working on your project (which is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!) for 3 years now. I've been going through all your posts on here and this build is just going to be gorgeous when it is completed.

    It's funny because your latest post is about lacing the rear wheel and that's exactly the step my father and I are currently on. I wanted to ask you some details about the lacing pattern!
    Looking forward to your reply, and thank you!

  5. Hello again! Tonight my father and I are going to try and re-attach the rear swing-arm. I replied to your email a while ago, let me know if you got it? Thanks.

    PS: Let's see some progress updates on here! :)

    1. Hi Prasun, Where abouts are you in the world? The parts can be sourced from various suppliers mostly in the UK.
