I LOVE those kind of bikes. You get em dirt cheap, clean em up, and sell for a profit. I did that to the last 8 bikes I bought. Lots of fun!

The bike really is clean except for the dent in the muffler. The clutch cable is slightly corroded on the outside. Other than that is operates normal. Instead of trying to hide it I pictured it plain as day. The paint on the bike is absolutely perfect I guess I just have a bad camera and should have cleaned the engine/wheels/tires before I took pictures. The previous owner stopped riding the bike because he thought it had a bad rectifier.....the battery was just bad I bought it with 5000 miles on it replaced the battery and put another 2000 miles on it. The tires are brand new and the brake/clutch levers are brand new. I have changed oild/filter twice since I bought it (once when I bought and once again at 6500 miles) There is a little bit of pitting on the head light assemblies but it is not bad at all and could come off with some polishing. Sorry I have a bad camera and am not a photographer but if you see this bike in person you would not call it dirty.

Oh I don't know, I'm notoriously lax when it comes to bike washing. I keep it halfway clean in the summer but this time of year it's a waste of time. My bike has a pretty even layer of road crud on it now and I dare say it'll look even worse by the time the rainy season is over. However the pivot points are all cleaned, the oil and filter is changed every 5k per the book, belt adjusted, aircleaner cleaned, tire pressures checked, steering bearings greased.....

The bike runs like a champ but it ain't no garage queen, it's a road bike and that's what it get's, rode hard and put away wet..

There's "dirty" and then there's "let it sit out and rust and build up gunk everywhere.

Still, the Triumph should be able to suit out like an old KZ750 rat bike and not turn into a pile of rust in only 3-4 years.

A man after my own heart...I take great pleasure in maintaining my stuff to the highest level. But I also add cosmetics to the work; when I used to tell people my Low Rider was 30 years old, people who didn't recognize the Shovelhead engine were amazed. The Vee is utterly immaculate; I use old tooth brushes and Q-Tips to get to those hard to reach spots. I know, it's a sickness...and I don't want to be cured!
