Triumph folding

Triumph Traffic Master Folding 1980

20 inch wheel, 20 x 1 3/8 tyre.
46T chain wheel and SA AW 3speed with 15T cog.
Brooks saddle.
All original and great condition.
It seems to be not used much, probably kept in dry storage since brand new, only the whitewall tyre is showing the age, otherwise looks almost brand-new.
It's rare to find folding one with this condition, keep it as is or just ride it!

The Ending is The Beginning






My old workshop was a great space,
almost everyday, after work, on my day off, I was there to do something,
working on motorcycles, bicycles, and having friends,
What I was earning wasn't money, it was experience and friendship,
Thank you very much for your support,
and now this old workshop is closed, The End.

The End is The Begin.

I'm moving on to next stage and setting up new workshop,
it will be for motorcycles, bicycles, and original products,
and support my locals,
this time I'll try to get some time to do my own bike,
Simply I'm a motorcyclist before mechanic, metal worker, cyclist, and business man,
New workshop will be open new year, The Begin.


旧ワークショップは素晴らしい空間でした、
ほぼ毎日、仕事の後、休みの日とそこで過ごし、
バイクや自転車の作業をしたり友人と過ごしたり、
そんななか何を稼いだかといえばお金ではなく経験や人間関係、
いろいろとサポートして頂きありがとうございました、
このワークショップは閉店です、終了。

終わりは始まり。

次なるステージに向け新しいワークショップを設置中、
こちらもバイク、自転車そしてオリジナルプロダクトを進め、
地元の皆さんのサポートをしてゆきます、
今回は是非自分のバイクをいじれる時間をつくっていきたい、
メカニックやメタルワーカーそれとサイクリストやビジネスマンである以前に単純に自分はモーターサイクリストでありたい、
新しいワークショップは新年に開店予定です、開始。

This bicycle was belong to my friend's mum who used to ride in Feltham riding club in them days,
And after long time sleep in storage and after done good treatment, it got back to road for action! This bicycle built with proper quality stuff sach as Chater Lee pedal, Williams Crank, GB Brakes and Stem, etc,,,,and has got very nice Britannalloy pump!
It runs so smooth and great handling, it needs nice open road to get feeling of how these classic lightweight bicycle works!

こちらの車両はもともと友人のお母さんが所有していた物でその当時フェルトナムというライディングクラブで乗っていた物、長い間倉庫に眠っていた物を掘り起こししっかりとトリートメントを施したのちその道のりに帰って来ました。
その当時の高品質なパーツで組み上げられたこの車両、チャーターリー、ウイリアムス、GBなどなど、、、そしてブリタニーアロイのポンプ、ハンドリングもしなやかでとてもスムースなライディング、そのクラシックライトウエイトの本領を発揮するにはナイスなオープンロードが必要ですな。

Thank you Sarah for old Photos and everything else.
