2020 v5.56 year old chrome

I was just doing some calendar work. It was 6weeks ago that the Teens got sent home from boarding school. 6weeks since we kinda all went a bit psycho, started wearing masks, locking down, isolating…

It’s been a rather interesting experiment.

I’m not going to journey into the discussion of pros n cons in the “lock-down”. Shall not discourse on the draconian if not stupid rules (some not all) that have been initiated. Will refrain from writing about the the psychosis and drama and hardship the economic suicide has caused.

I’m going to talk about 56 year old chrome…

I have been hankering to give the 66 TR6 (650cc Triumph Thunderbird) a good polish up… its one of my favourites bikes. Not a numbers matching machine, the frame and engine and tins and chrome are a collection of various parts that were brought together to recreate a very cool vroom-machine.

Once complete, after cleaning the rust and stains and going and oil… after a good polish and tune up, we’ll be good for another 10 years.

And the beat goes on…
