1955 Triumph T110

The Triumph T110 was widely advertised as the fastest production bike in its day; so naturally I had to have one. Finding the bike was not so hard, but bringing her back from her long ugly history as a chopper during the 70's, was not quite as easy. Thank God for ebay!
I had made some slight design changes from the original during the restoration, and brought her back as a Cafe Racer -well, at least a slightly caffeinated version of the original. In any case, I rolled her out of the garage, took these 6 shots, and then it was time to screw it on... All I remember from this first ride was the terror and fear. Riding this bike at speed is like getting a kick to the groin - you stop breathing and your eyes start to water...
