Vintage Enduro Triumph

Got myself a new motorsickle, its a 1958 triumph t21 thats been setup and used for enduro and trails riding .
I was told it was used in enduro racing in wales at some point.
i'm thinking of contacting the last owner in wales to get a bit more history on its racing past.

I love all the handmade off road parts like the pipes and bash plate.
i'm going to keep them as is.

i got to ride it twice before the kickstart return spring decided to jump off the kickstart shaft.
it got wedged inside the gearbox outer casing and jammed the kickstart lever at about 6 o'clock when you tried to start the bike.
So its time to open her up 1 week after buying her, ya gotta love classic bikes.
