’71 Triumph T25 SS T models

Double pleasure, double your fun Doublemint gum…or a pair of T25′s. Yep, two for just the price of one. The Triumph T25 is only a BSA B25 rebadged, but that’s ok.

little 250′s are really fun to They’re relatively light, to start, handle good and for the part, very reliable. And you can get two of

What’s the difference between the SS and T The SS is the ‘street scrambler’; road a hugger style front The T model is the trail model call it the Trail Blazer); knobby tyres, high fender and I think, final is different as well. Both of the T20 are open for lot’s of modifications.

You can one of these and make a very dirt bike out of it…it weighs 320 lbs and that exhaust has got to most of that. Really, it take all that much to this a very fun off roader. The SS is so ripe for the cafe’ treatment…dump the upgrade the suspension and do the regular tweaks and you have one rockin’ canyon carver.

In the first paragraph I said the are “for the most part, reliable”, well…maybe I exaggerated a The little 250′s are very revving motors and seem to best at high (that’s a term here…) rpm’s, but with those high come problems. The T25 and the BSA B25 have a to have valve train along with lower end

There are two things you can do to lessen issues. #1, don’t rev it up real and, #2, fix the problems before happen. There are a number of websites that have fixes and sources for parts…there are of parts out there and not all that

I found this pair of on ebay this morning for a reasonable price. You get both a Scrambler and a Trail fun. Hey, I know…the his and models. That way you can convince the to let you bring them home.

I’ve tried that one than once and I can’t of one time it actually worked, mileage may vary. The Trail is ready to ride today and the SS was a year ago and needs just a bit to put it on the road. While looking at the pictures, the SS has the better twin shoe front brake the T model has the older single shoe front…the single is for casual off road use but the newer is MUCH better.

Doesn’t the value of this pair in the All in all if you like smaller bikes and something a bit different, a T25 is a great Click on the pics below for info.

These really are fun so.

’69 Triumph Trophy

In 1981 I was living in Albuquerque, in a radio station, raising a of kids and riding my motorcycles as as I could, all in all not a bad life. New Mexico is a for motorcycles, if you ride off road you spend the rest of your exploring and you probably won’t see it all and if you on the road you will never be long as you stay off the interstates.

New Mexico is year round and northern is. well, let’s say a shorter riding season. The community there is big. I many friends on two wheels some I still met on rides later.

While living in I bought a 1969 Triumph from this little that repaired English Mechanically it was good, cosmetically it was good…someone had rattle can painted it really ugly brown. of how it looked, it was a blast to ride. I good friends with the owner and even after I back to California we remained in for years until his passing.


A few days before I moved, showed up at my house with a 90% BSA B25 in the back of his truck. He rolled it out of the pushed up the driveway and said owe me a beer now and a ride on it when I visit”. I was dumbfounded. Later, told me I was just dumb for that little bike to California.

I couldn’t resist.

a year of work, I was riding little BSA around having a unfortunately, one day while working on it, you the saying about British ‘ride it for one hour, work on it for (it’s soooo true), I the mistake of leaving my garage open. While I was inside a sandwich someone decided liked my little BSA more I did. I was heartbroken, they stole my Kawasaki 750 which was my form of transportation.

So what has this all got to do with Triumph I’m posting? The BSA and the Triumph are the bike, just different

Here are the things you need to about the little BSA / Triumph they’re slow, parts a difficult to find (unless you where to look), they are reliable unless you push (70MPH on the freeway is considered it), they are easily into almost anything off road to cafe racer and importantly…they’re fun to ride!

This Triumph I found on ebay morning has potential. The owner is a light on description…”999 miles, much stock, great bike, new battery, runs From the pictures it looks to be in pretty good condition. In BSA guise this would be as the ‘Street Scrambler’ model.

at the pictures and you’ll see a small plate under the engine. It needs a good going and over (these are so easy to on), a little TLC and you’ll a fun little around town or, strip it down and go play in the 250 will do either willingly. The it now’ price is a bit steep but not too far out of compared to some bikes I Click on the pics for, maybe one more pic…and the to put it in your garage.

Just remember to close the
