Bikes In The Shed
Since the early 1990's Malcolm here at Classic British Spares has been providing customers motorcycles with tune-ups, rebuilds and restorations on a multitude of vintage British motorcycles
Including makes from Triumph, BSA, Norton, Sunbeam, Matchless and Ariel
It was this time where Classic British Spares was making a positive name and mark within the vintage British motorcycle community as the "go to" to service and parts
Over the years we have worked on, repaired and helped many motorcycles in deep despair looking for a new life back on the road
I wanted to share with you some of our previous work and our personal bikes currently in our stable
Triumph T90 (350) "Road Racer"
The Triumph T90 road racer was built by Kyle here at Classic British Spares
There was quite of bit of R&D that has gone into this machine to make this little 350 "go"
Every bit of detail including the special cylinder head built by "Lief Lewis" at Lief Racing Engines, Mega Cycle cams, Tri-Cor oil tank, and a lot more goodies inside..
|Engine - 1960 Triumph 3TA|
|Frame - 1968 Triumph T100C|
|Pistons - 9:5.1 (+.020)|
|Wheels - Buchanan's|
|Head - Lief Lewis|
|Brakes - TLS (front)|
1965 BSA B40 "Enduro Star"
This B40 Enduro Star was a long time shop bike that was literally missing everything..
Hollow cases, no tank, no seat, no head, no barrel... just a rolling chassis
Kyle revamped this machine down to the bare frame and currently has over 200 miles on the new build
Notice that the paint scheme is from a "Victor" however, this machine is an "Enduro Star" 350 - only a trained eye can spot the difference
|Engine - 1965 B40 350 (B40FE)|
|Frame - 1965 C15C|
|Brakes - Stock|
|Exhaust - Stock high-pipe|
|Electrics - Electrex World Ignition|
1968 Triumph TR6R "Trophy Sports"
The most original motorcycle we currently have in our stable is old "trusty rust"
This 1968 Triumph TR6 Trophy Sports still has it's original licence plate, dealer frame and dealer sticker since new back in 1968
|Engine - 1968 TR6R|
|Frame - 1968 TR6R|
|Brakes - Stock|
|Pistons - 9:1 (+.060")|
|Electrical - Stock (rectifier, diode, etc)|
|Paint - Original (Riviera blue)|
1964 Royal Enfield "Interceptor"
The Royal Enfield 750 Interceptor is a very pleasing motorcycle. Silky smooth with loads of torque.
There is a reason why the RE Interceptor was always "hot" machine when it was first launched
This lovely machine was restored and brought back to life by Malcolm
