Triumph T160 1975

Having owned a T150 in the BC years (before children), I always wanted the electric start version.  I thought the styling was better and as I enjoyed the T150 what could be better.

Eric’s T160

I saw this advertised just before Covid lock down.  It had been off the road for 32 years and was going for a lot lower price than the rest. (guess why). I went to collect it on the lock-down Saturday, the engine ran and it had a low mileage. Committed.

Having got it home, it was clear a lot of work was needed, from seized brakes to misfiring, and when running a lot of smoke from the engine. Eventually everything was stripped, cleaned, repaired, replaced and updated.  Apart from its weight I love it.
