Triumph Roadster on its wheels

By Chris McPheat, Oct 10 2019 04:41PM

The Triumph Roadster I have been working on reached a milestone today, I have refitted the wheels and put it back on the ground. Bleeding the brakes turned into a bit of a nightmare, the very individual Girling master cylinder seemed to prefer to pull air into the rear slave cylinders on pedal return rather than refilling from the reservoir. I bought an easy bleed system to allow me to pressure bleed, adapted it to fit the master cylinder and today was finally able to get some pedal pressure. There are brakes enough to think about driving it at least so I'll put some fuel in the tank and see what happens with regards firing it up.
