Triumph TR5t 1974
by Tom Wilson
A very nice little bike, well it seems that way (little that is). Very light, flick-able, quite quick on acceleration almost arm wrenching, and seems very happy to cruise around the 50-60 MPH margins. This bike is guaranteed to bring a smile to any rider, a real fun bike. I brought this bike back home from the USA, the previous owner had had it restored to its former glory, as you can see from the photo's it looks good and rides as good as it looks. This is a 1974 model if its painted red its a 74, if its painted yellow its a 73. Triumph could not afford any other TR5t updates at the time, my thinking (possibly the same as the factory) is don't spoil a great little bike 'paint it red' shame as they only made this model for 2 years, but after all you (the customer) were spoilt for choice........ red or yellow!....... what more could any one want?
