Default My Triumph 3H 350CC

Here are pictures of my prewar 1940 Triumph 3H , 350CC OHV single with 'Girder' fork, restored and on the road.
The bike runs well and is pretty peppy for its age.

An enviable bike indeed, the attention to detail is very heartning. Love the paint job too.

Really love it when proud owners give us a look at series pics of their prized possessions. Wish we could see more and more posts like this one.

Thanks 911987, You will see pics of a 1952 BSA c-11, 250cc soon.
The bike is under restoration and I am hoping that it should be ready by early next year.

@ Dussey,
Nice bike, all the best for restoration.
The only thing I want to ask is that is it having double cam ?? Is the rear seat is rigidly connected to the body ??

Nice bike! I have one too, which is being restored by a friend. By the way, is it a 3H or a 3HW? The W suffix can be found on the engine block. If it is a 3 HW, its a wartime model and civilian touches such as chrome on the exhaust, rubber knee pads on the petrol tank, coachlining etc. would be non-original.
