Not a restoration, just a "casual refurbishment. Have a few bits, (ok alot of bits) that I've decided to bolt on to a clear title 1968 Triumph 650 frame I have. I didn't paint the frame, but did clean and paint "some" of the bits. And did install a later Triumph disc brake front end, with tapered roller bearings and two adapter spacers (top of tree and bottom of tree) from "Klempf's British parts" I filled the oil tank with solvent, and the gas tank with non ethanol gas for several days ... to make sure they didn't leak, and the DON'T! Not sure how far I want to go with this. I just drained the oil tank and cleaned and flushed with water. I don't like the chrome oil tank and considering priming and then painting it black. How far should I go? Comments and opinions invited.
