M reg Trophy bee laid up a while

Triumph Trophy mailing list
Hi can anyone give me some advice, I have been offered a M reg 1200 trophy, it's been laid up a while. Is there any problems to look out for on this early model? It has leaky fork seals and a bit of pitting to the forks, has anyone got an idea of the costs to hard chrome and re-grind in uk.
 many thanks

In the past, I've used Hard Chrome Plating & Grinding Ltd with good
results - http://www.hardchromeplating.co.uk/

Other than that, sprag clutches are always a bit suspect but I think an
M reg bike should have the later, beefier one, and crankshaft sensors
were still failing at about 20k miles - used to be about £35 and ten
minutes work to change. The replacement crankshaft sensors are fine. If
it's done much more than 20k miles, odds are the sensor has been
changed.

Thanks Mike, at least I can ask the right questions about the bike.

Depending on how pitted the fork legs are, you might be able to remove raised-edges from stone pitting with a sharpening stone moved lengthwise along the disassembled fork legs.
For a bike that's set up for a while you'll want to look at the fork seals, tires, fuel tank, air filter, and carbs. Any of those might need some attention.  If it sat outside, the clutch cylinders & line, chain, and brake cylinders/lines might also need attention.  This should be true for most bikes, not just Trophies.

Hi,

 

Don't know the price, but I have a '96 BBB that I am sadly selling due to
health issues that leave me needing something a bit lighter.  This bike will
need nothing done to it - I've done it all.

 

It is the bug-eye version, the first year of the last model if you like.  It
has Hagon springs and rear shock, is in really good nick with lots of extras
potentially, and runs like a dream.  I've had it for six years now.  It has
been SORNed for 18 months and with my mechanic for MOT and putting back on
the road.

 

I love it to bits, but it needs a new owner who can take it on from here.  I
have done north of Scotland to Cambridge and back without a hiccup.  The
Corbin saddle is great (original, or original with gel pad inserts also
available), a  nd the tall Clearview screen puts all the weather past you.

 

I would happily negotiate delivery for petrol and return train home (Club 50
gives cheap fares) for anyone interested.  

 

Forget that extra cylinder, it's not needed.  That's why all Triumphs of
note are triple's.  Merlot Red is definitely the fastest!

 

Contact me on [hidden email] <mailto:[hidden email]>
if you are interested..

 

Kind regards,

 

Brian

Really sorry to hear this, Brian. You've been one of the longest standing members of this group that I can remember and always been a fantastic help to anyone who had requested it.
I hope the health thing is something that is just a blip on your biking activities and hope you may continue to offer your contribution to the group.
For anyone thinking of buying Brian's bike, if he says it has all been done, you can be sure that is right.
The only sign of poor judgement I have ever seen from Brian is the statement that Merlot Red is the fastest....that of course is utter bollocks hahaha

Hi Ken,

 

Fortunately it is only a blip - a post-viral arthritis that is now almost
totally gone.  However, I needed to change to something lighter to keep
biking through it, and went to a BMW F800ST.  I've made lots of wee tweaks
to it, to make it more comfy, and am delighted with the result.

 

Now, Merlot Red is nicer than BRG, slips through the air better, and is
hotter looking, therefore much faster..

 

Seriously though, my lovely lady has the Hagon HD springs and thicker oil;
Hagon rear shock, Tociko 6-pot front callipers (these were replaced around
19,000 miles, around 10,500 miles ago) and has been lovingly serviced by an
ace real old school mechanic every year regardless of my mileage.  It has
crash mushrooms on the engine block and aluminium fuel cock after the
plastic one had the usual issues.  A wiring loom chaffe under the tank has
been stripped out and repaired this year, and the starter motor has been
refurbished.  It will be service and have a 1 year MOT with it.

 

At present, other than that it is original.  However, I used genmar bar
risers, a Clearview Tall Screen (I am only 5'8" but it is perfect), a Corbin
Saddle (also have an original, AND an original with gel pads for rider &
pillion) and inner cases for the panniers.  All of these parts can be
purchased with the bike if wanted.  I also have an engine sump that came
with it when I bought it (dunno why the previous owner bougt one but never
used it) and the original front callipers and fork springs if anyone wishes
these weak and wishy washy units.

 

I will be sad to see her go, and wish her to go to a real enthusiast rather
than any old biker.  If the buyer does not wish the extras, I will offer
them to anyone who wishes...

 

I will stay on the group for a while until it is all gone.  Anyone riding
the Highlands this year, please give me a shout and I'll try and catch up in
person, and share some great routes with you - the NC500 is ace!

 

Keep it upright guys & gals.

 

:) Brian

Brian, glad you have made a recovery and I hope you find a good home for her.  But not boat for much longer! It will have to be Bob then?
