I like the Triton leaning against the wall nonchalantly in an "Ogri " style.

Done the Tritton thing again so many times in my head over the years not making my mind up just which way to go but I have space here and I’m pretty sure it will happen at some time very soon.

Engine now rebuilt and back in the frame. I completed 60 very cold miles today starting the running in process all over again! All appears to be fine so fingers crossed the genuine Honda piston won't melt at 480 miles as the pattern one did  :(!

Well done again, i really hope its all ok now. I liked those when they were new, fantastic handling and a decent turn of speed for a small bike---but then my first bike was a 250 Royal Oilfield all 7hp of it!

Thanks all and thanks for all the advice during the strip down. The weather for tomorrow is dry so maybe I'll get some more (4000rpm =40mph 😴) miles in! I'll take it up to 4,500 cruising when I clock up 100 miles. I'll keep the revs to 5000rpm until I reach 500miles and then increase by 1000rpm for every 100 miles thereafter. I'm just conscious of another potential meltdown if I don't go easy during the running in period.
