Anybody on this board from the maritime provinces? It would be interesting to know the selling prices of these bikes, given the location of the auction.

Damn, I haven't been able to blast around on my Motorcycle for a few weeks now... Now we're going to get a big snow storm here. 12"+ inches in Cambridge, MA expected.

Were due for a hummer of a snow storm also. Just finished snowmobile repairs. What a useless machine. Fix it more than ride it. Those bikes look good. I wish I was a Newfie.

I used to have one of those 350cc Triumph 3T.Never saw one that colour in the UK,the only ones I saw were all a pale silvery blue.

The handling was crap and the tank was used as a stiffener for the frame.They became known as the rubber frame Triumph.

Had a lot of fun on it though and it was real comfortable.

Allan....that style of frame, common to other Triumphs of the period was commonly referred to as the "one bolt instant whip" the front downtube being connected to the lower two rails by one (3/8" if memory serves)bolt.

The 57 Norton 850 Commando must be an example of the long lead times from prototype to production in English motorcycle manufacture....the first 750 Commando fastback did not arrive in the showrooms until late 1968 http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//wink.gif
