To be honest she isn't being ridden much at all these days as I leave very early and don't like disturbing the peace of my beautiful "hidden valley" neighborhood, so I tend to take TBob out on the mornings I'm not on my Rayvolt. But Nyx is too much fun to sit unloved. Think it's time for her to find the next person to truly appreciate everything she offers.

I've taken her in a cafe racer kind of direction. Have a Ducati style 900SS half fairing being made up. Trimmed some of the side covers and tidied the tail. She's back in pieces again at the moment with bits being painted. But getting closer.

I had to laugh at the old Triumph joke...my first bike was a 1969 Trophy 250, I was 16 and in high school, believe me when i say that bike made a pretty good mechanic out of me lol!
All the best Trace,
Nigel
Indeed! Lucky she'll be more my showpony than my daily commuter.

Thanks guys for all the kind words.
