Could be, it is a APU, Hyderabad registration I bought it from my friend Mistri who may have bought it from the guy you are reffering to. Got to check the RC for confirmation.

APU is very much a 60s regn. so it couldn't have been brought to hyd. in the 70s.
So, either it was brought in the 60s itself, or it isnt the same bike.

Dear Vikrut,
Thanks for your appreciation. It took me a lot of time and effort to restore them to their stock condition, I was much younger in 1992, that is when I did the restoration of the BSA, Triumph was done up cosmetically but a brand new engine went into it 4 years later and has since done not more than 2000 kms. Wanted to share with you all the before and after pics too.

Gorgeous bikes Fazal. I remember many years back I saw you on the Triumph near Masab Tank and it sounded so clean and looked like a million dollars. Great restoration.

cute bikes Fazal. Triumph look very similar to enfield bikes. Engine block, side boxes, neutral finder, gears and brakes, wheels, headlights, tank, etc.

What is the nemesis of triumph along with enfield. Can somebody throw light?

Fazal, Is that the Silencer on BSA Goldstar before restoration fitted onto some of the Enfield bikes?

Goldstar/ Goldie silencer as it is called is a craze/rage on enfield bikes

No this Goldstar trail bike have a different silencer. The ones fitted on to the Enfields is based on Goldstar DBD34 road bikes.

Thanks DKG,
As you know it took a brand new engine for the kind of firing that you heard, prior to which the rattling in the engine was more audible than the firing. The ignition switch on the Triumph is the only thing that is not original, I have the original Lucas with me but got to completely rewire the bike for that, intend to do that some day soon.

Dwarak,
No idea about where the previous owner got this silencer, it used to burn my shoes more than silencing the bike, it was loud and ugly. As this is a 500 single it does not have the musical beat of a twin, anyway since my objective was to get it to stock condition off went the silencer and on came the original.

Dwarak,
There is a world of difference in Triumph vs Enfield. The ride quality is very superior and the twin cam on triumph takes it to a higher level of precession, Twin cylinder and the firing are so distinctively "Triumph", looks wise too there is so much flow and contiunity in body line.
Only Norton twins have more impressive firing than Triumph.
Overall if both Triumph twin and Enfield twin sand side by side, there is not much to compare between the two.

Hi Hillram,
Yes I was a member of Asif Tennis Cub until early 90's, great memory! My bikes are not in the condition where they can bag the 1st prize, the last time I was in a rally was in 96 when the Triumph bagged the 1st prize and Best in it's class. I am planning to do a complete exterior job on the Triumph and after which you will see it at shows and rallies and the BSA needs some oilseals to be road worthy.
Thanks
