Heb inmiddels de cilinderkop gevlakt want er kwam tussen de pakking meer uitlaatgassen uit dan uit de pijp Crying or Very sad .Met een stukje glas en korrel 1200 gaat dit perfect Laughing .Nu het hele spul weer inelkaar zit kan ik de carburateur en de ontsteking gaan stellen.Word ook nog een karwei want het is de 389/13 en dit is een van de grootste in zijn soort.Vooral een 500cc.Maar met veel geduld komen we er wel.Ik wil onderhand wel eens een keer rijden dus ga een tandje hoger.
Ik houd jullie op de hoogte.

Hoi Simon,
Een voordeel, jij heb tenminste al een kenteken. Ik ben met de mijne nu begonnen met de electriek, RDW stelt toch wel heel wat eisen voor kenteken aanvraag. Staat op jou kenteken een Triton of Norton?
Ben afgelopen weekend bij Jim Castricum(Triumph/Triton specialist) geweest. Man naar me hart , weet tenminste waar hij het over heeft. Heeft iemand nog tips waar het RDW allemaal op let? Ga binnenkort maar weer eens die schuur opstoken, het begint er weer verdomd koud te worden santa

De mijne staat als Norton op kenteken.Een maat van me is ook bij het RDW geweest met zun BSA maar daar werd eigelijk niet zo heel moeilijk gedaan.Kwam er de eerste keer doorheen.Als je zorgt dat de standaard dingen goed zijn is er niks aan de hand.De meeste van die keurmeesters hebben ook auto/motor hobbies dus die snappen het wel.Die jim woont die ook in Castricum?Mischien eens een keertje langs gaan voor wat tips&tricks.

Zo,

Weer een stukje verder met het aan de praat houden/krijgen van de machine.Vanmorgen kleppen gesteld,ontsteking gesteld en toen de carburateur.Je raadt het al,de carburateur is niet te stellen op deze motor.Het is een Monoblock 389/13 (mainjet 240) en veeeel te groot voor mijn 500cc.Heb er een 376 (mainjet 240) op gemonteerd van een bevriende sleutelaar en toen liep ie als een zonnetje (zover die kunnen lopen Very Happy ).Iemand interesse in een mooi grote 389/13?Eventueel te ruilen voor een 376.Of als er iemand tips heeft om dat grote geval af te stellen is dit ook welkom.

Hello,

Finally I made my first testride on the Triton! It rides like a razorblade.There were of course a few problems on the first ride ,for example:A piece of rubber was blocking my fuelline so every 100m i had to flood the carburater to get home.
The second testdrive told me that one of the wires was rubbing against the tank and made a short circuit.Pused it home (only 100m).
The third testdrive was getting me home but with a slipping clutch.Very nice Mad
When I dismanteld the clutch I was curious what was wrong because there was no oil or grease on the plates.The problem was that the previous owner toke a set of friction and plain plates out so I was missing friction.
I'am now waiting for the clutchplates to come in and then make a final testdrive.
After that It's time to get rid of the oil leakages of the block and gearbox.And of course some small issues.I'll make some new pictures to get an idea of the
triton.

Hi mooner - what do you think how long is the way from Germany/ Lüneburg? I hope i come with a friend - he rides Norton. Same problem - way is to long - he never goes with the old lady on the "autobahn". So - i know you all hate it ( me too) , we put he bikes on a trailer and we start from "Rheine" near the boarder line. Sometimes you must do some "uncomfortable" things to have the fun you want! See you in October with fresh "netherlandair" in you tires. I help you to push the bike back! Ok - we will see if i must push my one in another direction - it`s 30 years old. Andreas

Hi everybody,

Today it was a nice day to take the Triton apart and start making it my own bike.In a few hours it was done and this is the result.
Hopefully the progress is going wel but i'm affraid it's going to take a bit longer than a few hours Rolling Eyes

I'll show more pictures when everything (sandblasting,powdercoating etc)is done.

The aloy is back from the polisher and almost ready to mount.
First I have to spray it with some clear spray (blanke lak)
Here some pictures from the progress to fit a few bits.[img][/img]

Is there a difference in shine then? I thought it was the same shine with clear paint as without it.
If it's not same I skip the paint job.
It's a fact that i'm a lazy worker on polishing alloy so i thougt this is the solution.
Advice is welcome....

Again a bit closer to final assembly






I decide not to paint the alloy with clear paint because there was a negative advise from the painter. Keep on polishing is the trick

Hello dear Mooner,

I've been following this project. Quite nice, I do say... I also own a Triton and have some restauration/overhaul work done on it currently.

With regards to the Aluminium; indeed not recommendable to spray. Actually, the shine will dull only very slowly after polishing. No need to spray and it will probably flake off, on relatively short term...
Shine will probably also be quite different to a nicely polished bare Aluminium tank.

I see you have one of these Degens swingarms. How's about the engine, any Dave-mods? Now I'm sorry for asking this, but why on earth did you opt for a total "restoration" of this bike? I do seem to remember the bike looking quite nicely when you bought it? (Or is that down to pics being pics?)

I sure hope you will be able to join the CafeRacerdag in Achterveld. I sure hope I will be myself, as my bike needs to be fitted with lighting on short term. That's about the only thing keeping me from riding it, but I need to have it done before leaving for the Ace Café reunion in early September. As you've got one of these yourself, you probably know how much time can be involved in modifying these bikes to accept such a "minor" item...

Keep up the good work and keep us posted, Jilles.

I'm quite a perfectionist and in my eyes the bike was not good enough. It's kept me anoying that it was still some points that were not good enough.
Now I can make it the way i like it and according to my standards. The bike is fine to ride it for a while and thats what I did last year.
When I have more pictures I will post them here.
What do you mean with Dave parts?

I mean any other special parts from Dave Degens; It looks like that swing arm of yours is made by Dave Degens of DRESDA Autos in the UK.

I have been at Dave's and know he has quite some special parts. Also specializes in go-faster engine mods for Tritons.

dresdapuntcopuntuk

Check them out. I'd have to admit that they're quite steeply priced, though. Most Triton parts better priced with Unity Equipe;

unityequipepuntcom

I've been to them as well, but seems like business is slowly drying up for them. Hopefully they'll be able to recover business now that the GBP is doing better. They mentioned biggest business for them currently is with Japan and Canada?

That's right. It's a dresda box swing arm. I didn't know that it was from Dave.
I'll check his site to see what they have for me.
