As Seen On TV: Fonzie’s 1949 Triumph Trophy 500 for Sale

Tea with Hot Sauce: 1967 Triumph Bonneville with Tracy Bodywork

While this Triumph Bonneville with Tracy bodywork is really more dirt-track than actual sportbike, but it’s cool and rare enough I thought it was worth a post. During the wild-and-woolly 1960s and 1970s, body...

More Patina Than You Can Handle: 1973 Triumph Hurricane X75

Vintage Rider: 1964 Triton for Sale

Vintage Rider: 1964 Triton for Sale

It’s interesting that a bastardized hybrid like the Triton could become such an iconic classic motorcycle. It’s an anecdotal observation, but it seems that engine swaps are more acceptable among the motorcycling fraternity than...

Steve McQueen Tribute: 1964 Triumph TR6C Trophy for Sale

Steve McQueen Tribute: 1964 Triumph TR6C Trophy for Sale

I don’t often write up Triumphs like this TR6C Trophy because, although they’re the very embodiment of vintage motorcycles, they’re also pretty easy to find: Triumph made a boatload of them, and fans have...

Baby Blue: 1975 Rickman-Metisse Triumph 650 CR

Although I’m not a huge fan of the hazy edges of the photos, this blue Rickman Metisse Triumph 650CR looks gorgeous. Rickman started out making frames for offroad race bikes and later expanded into...
