T180 Update

Here are a few words from Jerry our PRO:

Here’s an update on the T180 re-creation. Dougy Beardsall, Graham Holloway and I met up yesterday (5th July) to review progress on the bike. The image shows how it was. There is still quite a bit to do. The progress as in the photo has been achieved with lots of work by Richard Darby, Dougy, Graham, and donations of parts and services by many club members. Thanks to everyone!

I want to give Dougy a huge shout out for the work he is doing on creating an exhaust system for it. The effort he is putting in is huge. He is essentially having to create a clever way of connecting the centre down pipe because of the small gap between the cylinder head exhaust stub (please see previous posting for why this is necessary) and the frame tube. We will also be fitting a prototype silencer to it.
Once that is done we need to finish off the motor (fit cylinder head and rockers, check valve timing, fit oil pipes, fit ignition system, get a battery, finish the carbs, clutch mechanism, ally polishing). There is also some chassis work to be finished off, for example the side panel paintwork. The plan is to start the T180 before Beezumph if it can be achieved. A massive effort by all concerned is needed to make that happen.

The aim is still to have the bike on display at Beezumph along with a number of other prototypes. Norman Hyde, our guest speaker, will be giving a talk on prototypes at the rally.

Come along to Beezumph to see the first and possibly last triple prototypes made by Triumph. Tickets are available though the Club website.
