Default Triumph Motorcycle

Can anyone tell me what make, model, year this Triumph bike is? I don't even know how to ride a motorcycle, but I saw this bike today and immediately started looking up classes to ride. I must have this bike.

Would this be an ok choice for a starter bike...for a 130 lb. 5'3" tall girl?

thanks in advance. off to go do a lot of research.....

Apparently the site is not cooperating with attachments at the moment.

If you can provide a link to the picture, I'll try to help...

If it's one of the classic line like a T100, Bonneville, Scrambler or Speedmaster it should work fine. I had both a T100 and a Thruxton and both were excellent bikes, unfortunatly I'm considerably heavier and taller than you and needed something physically larger to ride.

If it's a sportbike like the Daytona or Speed Triple then no, it's not a good bike to learn on. They're too much bike for a beginner.

It's gotta be a custom bike, I can't find anything quite like it on the "internets"

That's a pre-unit T100C Scrambler. I'd say a '56 or a '58. It has a non-stock 21 inch front wheel. Great bike, but parts are made out of unobtainium, and that damn Lucas magneto makes a hamster wheel look like rocket science. Also has a non-stock siameased (sic) pipe on it. Look in the MX Forum for a short history on the T100.

And I don't see any oil on the trailer, so it must be completley dry, i.e. no oil in it at all.

Nice to park in your foyer and hang coats off of, but riding one would be an expensive propositon.

It was sitting in the office down the hall...I watched them roll it down the stairs. If I had picked my jaw up off the floor maybe I could have made an offer on it Maybe I'll go bug them later today and find out where it went.

Thanks for answering my question.

The modern version of the Scrambler, while not as cool is a whole lot cheaper, more ridable and more reliable. Easier to find too..

Also, the air filter is missing, so don't go riding it in the dirt!
