‘NUM­BERS ARE COR­RECT’

Classic Bike (UK) - - World | Your Classics - bernard gorham

I’ve had my 1949 Tri­umph TR5 Tro­phy for a while now – I got it from a chap in Grimsby who had worked with my fa­ther in the ’60s. The bike was orig­i­nally sold by John­son Mo­tors in Pasadena, USA – the have not been drilled, so the en­gine has never been in a gen­er­a­tor. When I bought it, there was a sprung hub fit­ted; I tracked down the speedo drive that fits be­hind the gear­box, but then de­cided to fit a rigid wheel. The rims are still Dun­lops, with a new-old-stock rear tyre.
