The retail counter is finished and Old World Bikes Ltd is busy getting the inventory checked in and put away. Commonly needed parts and accessories are now available with more arriving daily.
We had this great 1973 Triumph Bonneville T140V in for service this past week. This is a nice, original example of the model. Early T140s are some of the best of the breed and make great daily riders. They are plentiful and the prices are still within reach of entry-level vintage British motorcycle enthusiasts. In our opinion, the right-shift T140s are great bikes, with decent suspension, great handling characteristics, plenty of power and true Meriden pedigree

Almost every every motorcycle restoration involves rebuilding the carburetor. Sometimes a kit which includes rubber, gaskets and other parts is necessary if so this is what you need 622/208 Amal Gasket Set $4.95. Here is the a picture of a disassembled Amal 928 carburetor before cleaning from a BSA A65T we are repairing.
I'll suggest you don't call these phone numbers. This is from the Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph Fri Jun 10 1960 classified.
