 USAAF Station AAF-407

Bill, you’re gonna like this one! A true zenith in Meriden Triumph motorcycles. The Thruxton! And this here one is a special looking beast: all details present and correct from the alloy hoops, to the long Dunstall pipes (which as noted by Mr Ferry, have a high route over the timing side and gearbox) and the beefy and thirsty tank.

Gulping twin Amals, night blue color and that Diana Dors shaped fairing. The five speed gearbox give a hearty top speed I’m sure.

Tuck in you’re in for a treat! Pilots eye view let’s you slip through the air with ease. No wobbling goggles here. Look up racing motorcycle in any Boys Own annual from my youth in the seventies and this is what you’d see. Classic!

The nose cone looks like something from NASA.
Oh yes, and yours for  £9,650 from Venture Classics run by Chris Spaett based in Somerset UK. http://www.ventureclassics.com/stock%20list.htm go and have a gander at their other offering; plenty of fine machines to gaze at.

Thanks for the link Bill!
