i love old school bikes that haul ass.. :) i saw your bike and started looking on ebay at the 70's KZ900's, not as classic as the 70 brit bikes but very cool.. I would also like to own a brit bike with flipped controls..(brake and shifter) i think most of those where from the 60's..

Only one leek in the first 200miles.They still have copper base gasket.Retorqued down at first service.No leeks now.
Need to give you triumph oil rag with every bike.LOL
When a old triumph doesnt leek you know you need oil.LOL
