Lepus ssp.

Hare Rider

– lovely pencil illustration by artist Benedicte Waryn of a pre-unit Triumph chopper with a “hare-brained” owner. So much to like about the detailed drawing: from the clothing; to the custom bike; and the lush fur of the hare’s head.

Where the streets have no name

Joshua Tree

– dusty machine parked amongst the Piñon Pine and Scrub Oak as well as the eponymous Joshua Tree. Like some relic from U2’s photo shoot for their ‘87 album it blends into the arid landscape waiting for its sun-wrinkled leather skinned owner to kick it into life and ride peacefully through the desert.

Cherry Red Tank

Hybrid

– What do you get if you cross a 500cc Triumph Twin engine with a Greeves frame? A Grumph. Like some character from a Maurice Sendak story; it may make an adventure out of a jaunt in the woods.

Strabler’s Steed

Fifty Two Thunderbird

– bright red Triumph in homage to Brando’s film from that era. Good form, clean details and a might fine looking machine to go tooling around on.

AA

Snowy Streets

– imagine being on call as a recovery service in a snowstorm. Your bright yellow combination is your transportation. Heavy winter clothes and a barn door fairing to protect you from the elements. The Automobile Association had to get out through rain, snow or shine. My grandfather George must surely have experienced these conditions as an AA Man.

Frozen Lands

Ski-Doo

– found on the InterWeb here is a forlorn machine hiding in the dusty background of a barn. It looks like something used to effect in a James Bond film during a ski chase scene. The bullet nose is inspired!

Snow Day

Frozen Lake Runnings

– heavily insulated Russian biker is aptly garbed to rip across an iced-up lake . Spike clad tires will maintain traction to put down the tremendous torque offered by the big 2400cc Triumph Rocket engine.
