Triumph Tiger 750 , 1973 model TR7RV. Has about 4100 miles on the clock, and for unknown reasons she was put away in a garage in 1984.
After 25 years of storage, she's a bit of a mess. It'll need a good bit of wrenching, but at this point I'm confident it can be restored to nearly stock condition, hopefully without breaking the bank.
So far, the more experienced local bikers have been enthusiastic about the chances of getting this critter running again. I am too, but with a good bit more trepidation.
The bike is a bout 95% there. The engine is free and turns to the kick starter; it has good compression and spark, but one of the two ignition coils needs replacement. The first thing to tackle, the fuel system, is a bit of a mess; rusty tank, a lot of varnish everywhere else in the system.
I thought I'd just post the BEFORE pictures here, and keep this thread updated as we reach various mileposts in the raising of this critter from the deceased.
