I know this is a daft question but I have to start somewhere?
I am 73 years young and own Triumph 1500 Spitfire, Mk2 Vitesse , TR2 and a Morris Minor Traveller plus a few motorcycles!
The Spitfire is modified and runs ITB,s and fuel injection on a modified engine
The Vitesse needs a bit of work to get it road worthy not Konkers
The TR2 is in pieces and I do not think I will ever get it back together.
The Morris Traveller needs a bit of work as well!
2 motorcycles are road worthy and one needs work!
Plus numerous spares etc
So the question is I am thinking of buying a TR7 now while the prices are reasonable
Having a quick look I think I could get a very good soft top for about £6000 (2 litre)
We love Spitty and have done 35000 miles in the last 6 years Spain, Italy, Ireland(north and south) Classic le Mans (4) Classic Spa(3) we love touring
But as we get older she is getting lower to the floor(well feels like it!) so my thoughts turned to a TR7 is Still a Triumph but modernish?(I fancy a Triumph Stag but expensive for a good one and thirsty)
I have never driven one and all the reports I have read say they are not as bad as the non believers make out! (I remember the out cry when windy window TR4,s were allowed in!)
We have owned TR4, Reliant Scimitar, and I have repaired and driven a few TR6,s
I just thought a TR7 may suit better into my dotage
Now Am I completely mad or does that seem like a good plan?(remember I have to sell it to the Memsahib!)
To be honest I could sell one Motor cycle to buy one? (but its time I tried!!!!! to down size the collection)
ps be kind to me and break it gently that I am stark raving bonkers!
