Quality Lucas stuff...

I had an early 1970's Triumph Trident that had a couple electrical gremlins that I couldn't seem to exorcise.  Out of frustration, I took the bike to a local British motorcycle shop and asked them to to have a go.  The head mechanic looked at it and asked me: "You know why the Brits drink warm beer?  That's because Lucas makes refrigerators too."

Never could get that bad boy to hold a charge for longer than 24 hours.  Like a bonehead, I sold that bike for $700 in 1984.  I wonder what it would be worth today?

To use a well-known phase here reliability is overrated…when you have built in safety… if it’s too wet , too cold, too hot or going on a hot date in the 70/80’s kept you on your drive way well away from trouble.Unhappy

One back from the USA https:////www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Triumph-Trident-T150V-1972-Matching-numbers/114695586450?hash=item1ab463c292:g:oVoAAOSwfR5f62Sd

 

Yep all those bikes are going up and up many are shipped back over to the UK not only Brit Bikes all the Jap and Harleys too.. my 2 Honda XL twin shock 500 and 350 came from the USA I’m guessing they were Camp/cabin bikes as there little wear on them unlike bikes over here.
