1957 Triumph T110 for sale

Well sorted and very rideable 1957 Pre-Unit Triumph T110. I am asking $7,500.00 USD.

Excellent shape and needs nothing. Fresh top end by Wes White of Four Aces Cycles, aftermarket performance cams and nicely balanced. Rare DELTA dual carb head. Twin AMAL Monobloc carbs with WEBCO bowl extensions. WEBCO rocker bridge and sump cover. Very nice Lucas K2FC magneto that works superb, SRM oil pressure relief and screen. Brand new Alton Alternator (YES, no Lucas generator to die on you when you need it most!) converted to 12V negative ground. MAP Belt Drive with a dry clutch, fabricated and chromed rear sets, chromed “Clubman” type bars and modified W650 front end to look stock. Stock 4 speed trans that works very well and makes no noise and shifts nicely.

Body work is old but still looks great. Two tone light yellow and black with gold leafed lettering and blue pinstriping. The tank is from a later Triumph and has a custom made parcel grid, chromed, to resemble the original. Fenders are modified Wassel aftermarket that have had the center rib widened to match what the originals looked like. Custom grab bars and a BSA Bantam Sports seat fitted. Original tool box and oil tank.

New Dunlop K81 tires and heavy duty Dunlop tubes. Chromed steel rim fitted to the W650 front hub to match the rear. Disc front and stock drum rear. Plenty of braking for modern traffic and the Dunlop Tires handle supremely well. I have owned this bike for quite some time. Been an absolute hoot to ride, always a show stopper when I take it out. But for me it’s time to move on.

Fabrication is what we do: EVO Sportster

While we were working on the Metro truck, side jobs stacked up. This was a 97 Harley Sportster that came in for a more chopper style oil tank, ribbed rear fender and sissy bar. The owner didn’t want to hard tail the bike but wanted some of the cues.

These bikes pose an interesting problem in doing some of this work. The rear frame section is narrow and triangular AND are electric start only. The 300+ amp/hour battery suggested will not fit within the rear frame, it hangs off the left side behind the seat post. Our solution was to use a Ballistic Performance battery, these things are tiny and quite expensive.

In trying to gain as much room as possible, I removed the original seat mount and crossbar then fabricated the new hoop to get the most clearance between the fender and seat pan. The sissy bar is made from 5/8″ 188 wall DOM tube, offset to one side because the tire is not centered in the swing arm. Dr Marvelus did some “smash tube technology” to form the ends to look less like a fabricated part and fit the style of the build a bit more.

I installed the pickup, return and vent line through the bottom of the tank with hose beads so that standard hose clamps could be connected without blowing off under pressure. Dr Marvelus trimmed the seat down quite a bit and mounted the King Sporty tank and added the customer supplied nifty fuel cap in the top.

A few more things added to the list, shaved his triple trees and made a simple licence plate mount and stash box for his paperwork. In all this should stand out of the crowd pretty well.
