Hi

I have found this old picture of my Dad with the last motorcycle he owned. It was a Triumph but I am unsure of the model. The photograph was apparently taken in 1953, so it is from that era.

I would dearly like to find one in running condition and import it into South Africa.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance you could lend me in identifying the motorcycle, and pointing me in the direction of somebody who could help me source a restored version if at all possible.

(I am more than happy that you use the picture in your website if you wish, although its a photograph of an old photograph so the quality is extremely poor)

I can be contacted by email on roger_falck@mccormick.co.za

Thank you for your assistance.

Kind regards,

Roger Falck
