1957 Triumph Thunderbird T6 650cc

by Brian Forth
(Adelaide Australia)

Thunderbird 6T, 649cc 4-speed gearbox, single Amal Monobloc carburettor, rated at 34hp ex-South Australian Police motorcycle was used for general traffic duties in Adelaide.

The bike belongs to a friend who is an ex-police officer now living in Adelaide.

I'm working on a book for New Holland Publishers in Sydney. While I was doing research I came across your website and thought I would help you fill a gap.

The book to be titled 'Collector Motorcycles of Australia' will be released later this year.

My name is Stephen Shepherd of Portland, Victoria, Australia.

The owner of the Triumph is Brian Forth, use can use his name if you like, he would be chuffed if you did. He is the current President of the Veteran Vintage Motorcycle of South Australia and can be contacted if need be...

anyway keep up the good work with the website

"You have my permission to use the photos & text about my motorcycle in any way you want on your website, without compensation to me."

Cheers,

Stephen Shepherd

I think that some pictures you see on the net vary as the colour differs with different cameras. christian drug rehabs ocean breeze recovery

Thunderbird Gold NEW
by: Steve

Hi I have a 1958 Thunderbird here in Sydney.
I matched the paint from the underside of an old rear guard because the paint on the top was faded.

You have a multi level marketing NEW
by: Anonymous

You have a multi level marketing business and everything is going according to plan right? No! What's wrong? Are you making the progress that you want to make? Are you where you want to be in your life? Why not? Who is the person in charge here? The simple truth is, as long as we look outside ourselves for the reasons why things are not working out for us, we will never fix the problem. The person staring back from the mirror is the person in charge.

The problem is people most of the time in their life seems to ignore the small things like bestessays.com reviews on account of their unimportance. As it is not necessary or either it is too basic things that everyone in his life able understands such things.

Regarding 1957 Thunderbird 6T NEW
by: Kevin R

Hi there, nice looking '57 Thunderbird. I have one myself here in Sydney. As far as colours go, I am only aware that they had bronze gold for 1957. Mine is done, I think in an acceptable shade of that colour. You see quite a few of them on the net and the colour seems to vary. But I personally am not to concerned that they need to be absolutely correct (whatever the correct factory shade of gold was!) We should be just pleased that we own and ride one of these great British jobs. They have a black central stripe on the guard with thin white
lining on each edge. I also have a 1958 Thunderbird
(ex Victorian Police Force) with matching frame/eng.
numbers. Had it registered for a couple of years but
have now put it into recess for maybe a couple of years. Regards, Kevin.
