It is one of the best feelings to have something run, that you have been slaving over for a long time. It looks and sounds great.
We just wrapped up our annual "Triples in Tweed" meet at Ian's ( H2 Dude )place, this past weekend. It was great to see so many triples gathered in one place. Even better when we rolled through a small town, and the locals would step out side to see what the racket was all about.
It would be really cool if you could make it one year. I know it's a long, long, way for you for you to go , but I think you'd really enjoy it. Great bunch of guys.
Pictures on the Canadian Triples site soon.
If you get far enough away, you'll be on your way home.
Piss off, I'm in my Happy place.

Try this guy on ebay for the key.

The fork tubes should just slide out of the upper triple clamp after the lower triple clamp bolts are loose and the fork cap bolts are removed. They could be seized into the fork ears by rust. Penatrating oil is your best bet to get them free.
