Sounds like they don't build 'em like they used to and that's a good thing. Especially the old Lucas electrics.

Good touring bike then. I think the new TR3's are 2500 cc's. Biggest production motorcycle engine.

How's the longevity on these engines so far? I know there's are a ton of variables but are they routinely getting over 100k out of them before rebuilds?

From what I'm reading yes, they seem to be reliable and long living. Early ones like mine have had some transmission problems but like all vehicles you hear of the 20 bad ones not the 2500 good ones. Mine seems fine.

I've always liked those bikes but sadly I haven't seen many on the road the last few years like I used to. Kind of like a Victory!
