Pre Unit Triumph Wheel Lacing Chart

I am currently restoring a 1957 Triumph TR6 and I was searching high and low for Wheel Building Specs, well I found 'em and for those of you that care, here is a Wheel Building Chart presented in the 22nd Triumph and Ariel Annual Dealers Meeting notes from 1960.







I Kicked the Motor Cycle Habit, Von Dutch 1959


I Kicked The Motor Cycle Habit as told by Chuck Clayton, illustrated by Von Dutch, plucked this neat story from the January 1959 Issue of the worlds greatest Motorcycle Magazine (for the 3 years it was around 1957-1959), features some cool illustrations by Von Dutch, I don't think this piece has had too much exposure over the years although I did forward it to the editors a good Von Dutch book published a few years ago (still waiting for me Comp copy Aarron!). Sorry that the layout is a bit wobbly, just click on each piece to get a full size image.
