Hereīs a little history of the motorcycle:
My friend purchased it here in Kansas City from a man who owns a "hot rod" machine shop. The bike was
originallya 1970 Triumph 1R25W. The owner of the machine shop restores and modifies cars and motorcycle for
He replaced the 250 motor with a BSA B50T motor and used it for scrambles. My friend then purchased it
from him after the owner rebuilt the motor in 1991. He then gave it to me as payment for photographing his
wedding. I then completely took it apart except for the motor. I had the frame sandblasted and then powdercoated.
The other metal parts I had painted 1972 Jaguar Willow Green, which I thought would be a different color. I had
the seat redone, the wheels relaced, and the speedometer recalibrated and restored. As for modifications, I had new
Metzlers replace the original Dunlops, a new WasselIjunior Ace bar replace the original handlebars, a Boyer
Brandson electronic system replace the points, new Progressive Suspension shocks installed, and I changed the
headlight with a larger street unit with and arometer. I also replaced the chrome controllevers with Dougherty
alloy racing levers with the quick-adjust star wheels. In the photo the original Amal carb is seen but has since been
replaced with a Mikuni unit. Now it starts much easier. It took about a year and a half to complete the resoration.

Chris Pelletīs CCM
Bought the CCM in '78 as a worn out MotoXer. It's a short stroke motor and with the lengthened swinging arm and large gearbox sprocket should make the best set up for road use.
Done the oiling mods and fitted a bearing behind the clutch. 'Fraid progress is v e r y slow, so although it runs sweet, it'll be next year before I sort out the rear sets and tilt them shockers down. Meanwhile you'll still see me out on the Trailblazer, and there's a couple more B25SS's in the workshop that might make the road soon.
