Broke my heart to see deshabille twins and other exotica awaiting a collector trying to build a machine, or else the smelter!
Im guessing the Nawab you are talking about is still there at this place. One very famous guy referred to as bullet Nawab. Managed to get a few cosmetic parts for a 1956 bullet from him a few years ago.

The Prabhu u talking about, does he also own a few other classics and vintages including a Cezeta?

About the original post, that fork is from an Ariel and the bike is still for sale on ebay india. I picked up 1962 Jawa from this same person. The Honda in the picture was also for sale, Im guessing for around 50 to 60k. Ive only spoken to this guy over the phone. Attaching a picture of the Jawa that I picked up from him, which is under restoration now.

Isn't that a Honda CA77?

Attaching a few pics of Triumphs from the Haig Rally in Delhi last year.

If anyone needs more pictures of the Tiger 70, I can mail it to you. Have quite a few detailed pictures plus a small video.

(Im not blocking out the numbers as this is from a rally. Thanks to Chethan for these pics)

Smile information.. 3HW

Hello...

This is a 1941 to 1944 Triumph 3HW. 350cc single cylinder, overhead valves. Generally used in World War II.

The one you have is is Triumph and Ariel hybrid. Complete Triumph motorcycles and Ariel/Matchless telescopic front fork. Original 3HW had a girder fork.

Pretty good condition but 75k is not at all a good price. You will have to spend around 15-20k for the front girder fork and not very easy to find.

Carburettor is an Amal monobloc 376 while 3HW had pre-monobloc 276 carb. with a sidefloat. Again, not easy to find. If you buy a new one, it will cost you areound 25k from Amal Carburettors - Surrey Cycles.

You can see some of my 3HW and other motorcycles in my picture gallery-

If you need any help and spares for this 3HW, let me know. We are manufacturing huge range of spares and accessories for many vintage and classic motorcycles.

Best Regards
Rohan

Hey Dussy.

That is a real nice bike you have there. I believe these WW2 or as "military triumphs" as they were called in Hyderabad had the air filter in a box mounted on top of the tank.

Any comments on this ?

Thanks, Wasif. Yes you are right.Some of the military bikes did have the air filter on the tank as the carb used to get clogged with fine dust in very dry and dusty regions.
You can see pictures of my 1946 AJS rigid in the other thread "AJS Motorcycles".

Default will cost too much for restoration

They are the Vokes air filters. I heard reproductions are available in Delhi.

Here is a picture of it.

Yes Sir.

That is what I was refering to. I believe they were standard fitment on the "military" Triumph bikes. Others like the Nortons and the BSA's didn't have these fitted.

My friend has the very same bike (1936 OHV, Triumph 3HW) with a mIkuni carb, Adam's speedo and the air filters fitted over the petrol tank. he is putting up the same for sale from Nashik.

The bike is in awesome condition and starts in one kick. All original except for the carb. I have listed the bike for him in the classifieds section. If anyone is interested you can email me for the details of the person. I am amazed at the condition after 75 years on the road.
