1970 Triumph 500cc

triumph on the grass

I purchased this bike at Mid Ohio Vintage days. The bike was pretty much stock when bought. The hard tail was bolted on; the rear wheel was built using Buchannan Spokes and a 16” Harley Wheel. I found a NOS British front wheel and laced it up using Buchannan spokes. The top and bottom ends were rebuilt including the cleaning of the sludge trap. The old school Z bars give the bike a classic bobber look. Triumph front fenders were used on both ends. A simple black, chrome and silver look.
