British chopper with a 43 year pedigree

Went to meet a local fella yesterday to shoot his bike for the mag; it was in DicE a short while ago, but I think it deserves a bit more coverage and a more in-depth write-up, because there's some cool history behind this Triumph.

Pete bought the bike as a rotten heap from some basement somewhere up north, but it turns out it had been a well known bike on the show scene in the UK back in the day (this spread from 'Bike' in '74), and was first put together back in '66...

Anyway, I dig what Pete's done with it, and you can read the rest of his – and its – story in issue 11.
