1973 Triumph X75 Hurricane

Not the first Hurricane I have posted to Classic Sport Bikes and I’m sure it’s not the last. One of my favorites when it comes to the uncommon.

1973 Triumph X75 Hurricane For Sale on eBay

Here’s what the seller says:

1973 TRIUMPH HURRICANE, VERY NICE UNRESTORED BIKE. I GOT THIS BIKE IN A TRADE DEAL AND DON’T NEED IT. BEST I CAN TELL IT’S ALL STOCK,  With the exception of repainted tank and recovered seat. IT WAS STARTED AND RUN TWO YEARS AGO BY THE ORIGINAL OWNER, GAS TANK IS DRAINED AND BATTERY WAS REMOVED. LOOK CLOSE AT THE PHOTO’S

He’s short and to the point. He doesn’t know so take a close look. That might work out in your favor if you’ve been wanting one of these but come up a little short on cash. The last couple of these I’ve seen were mint and collected a price that correlated. Maybe this one will me a little more reasonable.

    I have to say this is one of the most beautiful designs ever.

    Craig Vetter’s work, while always innovative, has been hit & miss styling-wise.

    It is amazing that the windjammer simultaneously brought us the touring revolution, as well causing countless 80’s standards to be uglified. Similarly, I find it astounding that this absolutely stunning styling work came from the same man who tried to sell us the ‘Harley Liberator’ (looks like the Homer-car) and the ‘Winged Wheels of America’ monstrosity in the 90’s. You can check out the whole gamut at his site:

    That said, the X75 is by far the most lovely way to get around on a Triumph triple.
