  2. Triumph 3HW Toolbox: Is this right?

    Hi All, Nearing the end of my '44 Triumph 3HW project and had a question regarding the toolbox. Below is what I took apart when I first disassembled the bike... is this right? Does anyone have a picture of what the fastener assembly should look like? My gut tells me this is not correct. As always, any help appreciated.
  3. Triumph 3HW Project: Looking for...

    Hi all, Nearing the end of my '44 Triumph 3HW project and was wondering if anyone had advice on where i could find: Front frame torque stay (I think). I notice in pictures most bikes have some sort of stud between the top/front of the engine to the down tube... but I don't see this listed in the parts book. Any advice here would be appreciated Horn Inflator (to be mounted on chain guard) Appreciate any help!!!! Ian

  5. 3HW Rear Chain Size...

    Hi All, Starting to think i have the wrong size rear chain on my '44 3HW project. Can anyone confirm the size of the rear chain for me? I currently have: 530 (5/8" pin-to-pin x 3/8" inner clearance) with 90 links. Thanks! Ian
  6. Triumph 3HW Gas Tank...

    Hey Ron, Great bike... and thanks again for putting in the leg work on finding the C number. And yes, you are correct, I am located in southern California. Although I am Canadian and just hear for the year to warm up. Ian
  7. Triumph 3HW Gas Tank...

    Hi Ron, Great information... thank you. Was it standard to have the Triumph logo on both side of the tank... as well as the 'C" number? My frame number is: 50936 Thanks again! Ian
  8. Triumph 3HW Gas Tank...

    Restoring a '44 Triumph 3HW and had a question regarding the gas tank... more specifically the military markings and the art work. I can't seem to track down where my bike was placed so will most likely just make up the number markings... but was curious if there were specific placements on the gas tank (or anywhere else on the bike) that the markings and art work were supposed to go. IE. only on left side or tank, both sides, fenders, etc. Anyone have any idea? Ian

    Thank you! Ended up going with the Dunlop K70's.
  10. Triumph 3HW Tyres....

  13. Triumph 3HW - Handlebar Grips

    Hi All, Restoring a '44 Triumph 3HW and was wondering if anyone knows where to get a good set of replica handlebar grips. I understand they were made of canvas as rubber was hard to come by during the war. Any help would be appreciated! Ian

  15. 1944 Triumph 3HW Brakes...

    Hi all, Restoring a '44 Triumph 3hw and was having trouble tracking down brake shoes for front and back. I have read that they are interchangeable with shoes from 60's era triumphs... does anyone know if: 1) is this true? 2) what shoes I can replace these with for front and rear? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Ian
