TUX IN NICELY

Classic Bike (UK) - - World -

This is my lat­est build, which I rode in last year’s Distin­guished Gen­tle­men’s Ride and have been out and about on in Perth over here in Aus­tralia. The bike in ques­tion is a Tri­umph 500 Ad­ven­turer that was found moul­der­ing away in an old con­tainer in the ‘Wheat­belt’ area about 160 miles north of Perth, where it had lain for around 30 years. The bike was built loosely in the style of The Fonz’s bike from the TV se­ries Happy Days, with a few of my own in­puts. My cur­rent road bike is a Thun­der­bird Storm and the next re­builds in line are a Cz/jawa 250 twin two-stroke in the style of a ’60s GP bike, a ’77 Bon­neville and an ’81 Katana 1100!
