This is the best example on the restoration of a Tule Trooper that I
have ever had the pleasure to see. Joe
Nicholson has done a great job on the Trooper’s most deluxe model.
This will give you a very good idea as to what you would have seen on
display at a Trooper dealership in 1965. I commend Joe on the excellent job he
has done. Below are a few words
from Joe about the project.
If you run into anyone having problem finding a brake cable
(because of its length) I sent the old one to MotionPro in California and
they made and exact duplicate for about $30. I also converted the engine
from points to electronic ignition because it was actually cheaper than
replacing the points and condenser. I taped over the original Briggs and
Stratton engine stickers because I could not find exact replacements. The
bike starts on the first pull and idles like a dream with great throttle
