The Silver Jubillee was owned by my stepfathers cousin. He was a triumph guy in every sense of the word. He raced in the 60's and 70's. He bought the bike new and never rode it. It stayed mostly in the living room of his house and a brief stint at a local bike shop. He and his father were kind of eccentric characters from what I am told. He passed over 10yrs ago, it was left to his father, his father passed a few years ago, and my step dad was the executor of the estate. I helped them sell it last spring. Went to a guy in chicago and later to a collector somewhere in Alabama I believe. Not Barbers, I contacted them about buying it and they already had a nice example. Pretty cool bike. Not everyday you see a 30+ year old bike that is essentially new. Click on the pics and look at the others of the bike. It still had the paper over the lucas battery with the leads coiled up.
