    TRIUMPH 675 DAYTONA 2010

    Wet Weight (with 7 litres of fuel) 169kg

    Bike was bought with crash damage late last summer for a bargain price. I then fully repaired with Triumph parts for the road. MoT pass first time.

    Then work to convert to track bike. The K-Tech kit cost more than I paid for the bike and was the most expensive item. Most parts were sourced over the winter months from EBay. Paintwork was done by me using rattle cans and lots of tea.

    Finished the bike this morning bar a little fettling. Plan is to run this year as a minimum. First outing is Silverstone on 16th April and I cannot wait.

  16. Thanks Chris. First attempt not great as I was impatient and
    it was too cold to spray really. The weather this week has allowed me to get it done then a bit of elbow grease cutting and polish.
