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

Yes i think it's British motorcycle which name is Thunderbird and it's 1953 model. But you said that photo of that bike taken in South Africa which is very interesting for me. when i explore this website i feel that this website have every kind of latest and old collection of motorcycle. Now i'm looking best crazy train reviews but at the same time i like to save this website to download photos of such motorcycles.
