Hi again everyone I have been posting under Norton because I did not see this section but now i have found it i will start again, I have just purchased a 1960 Triton slimline frame with T110 bottom end and 9 stud bonnie top end and norton box with triumph primary cases running an alternator even though the crankcases are dynamo the timing chest has been blanked off with what i would think is a dynamo end plate cut down, I will try and post some pics but I am no techy whizz kid so please offer advice if it does not work, there are several things I wish to do it the first is, it has a very nice fibreglass tank which I am told has never been treated the previous owner used an additive which he says counteracts the harm that ethanol does and I have forgotten the name of it so that would be useful the second is there anyone in the uk who will professionally treat the tank so I can use it with what we now call petrol, next the rearsets are not up to standard and also I am looking to purchase at a reasonable price alloy fuel and oil tanks used or new, also the bike at the moment has siamese pipes and one goldie I want swept backs and goldies are the swept back ones I need just standard swept backs for a triumph 650 twin does being in the norton frame throw up any problems thanks in advance for any help Chris

Welcome, Chris.

Nice looking older Triton, it'll be fun to ride, I'm sure.

I bit the bullet today and ordered the alloy tank from TAB11 he did me a deal and has one in stock so now looking for swept backs and silencers there is a new pair advertised for a triumph 500 twin pre unit will they fit my 650 9 stud head and are there likely to be any other problems fitting them also looking for rear sets for amc box, many thanks everyone

I don't care for the swept bike pipes as they are in the way of the engine covers on both sides.

The only true purpose of them is to fit inside a full fairing.

I take your point on obstructing access but siamese pipes remind of riding an old combination with a double adult sidecar which is somewhat different to the cafe racer look I have always loved, I know there is not much practicality to it but only need to access when something goes wrong and who knows I might have the only reliable one (ha ha) Chris

Dave has Two Barcelona winners, the one you show being the first one from 1965, pre unit in Manx frame. The second from 1972, unit engine in a Dresda frame.

I put his '72 Barcelona winner in the gravel trap at Brands Hatch in '96 ! I was gutted, but being a racing pro, Dave just took it as 'one of those things'.

Still, to make ammends, I did put the labour in to rebuild it with him.
