69 triumph chopper

When I was out at the triumph shop looking for a new cylinder the old dude was showing me all this stuff. The guy has a goldmine.
Anyway to make a long story short, he pulled the plastic tarp back and I see a durfee girder then a walla a 69 Bonnie. It was chopped in 69 fresh off the showroom floor
and has been a one owner bike till the triumph guy got it.
She still rides just as it did in the 70s and needs nothing. It will soon be for sale once it gets a service and bike wash. stay tuned!

What you dont want to find when you are boring a cylinder for a 56 triumph

1983 XLS sportster

This is my wife's new bike.
Should I hardtail it or keep the swingarm? Wassal tank or alien tank?
Narrow springer or duel disk fork?
Too much to think about right know. I have a cam to install.
