This a great thread ! Nice to be able to get straight to the goods without having to plough through a whole bunch of German and Jap stuff.

Me far too many years ago on my 70 Long Range Commando , there wasn't many of these about . It was stolen from outside a pub in NZ and all I got back was the tank which is on my Commando now , posted a few pages back.

Did anyone here have one of these at sometime?

I've always been a BMW guy. Sad, I know, but it's true.

Why is it these late 60's and early 70's british bikes just look ... RIGHT? When I close my eyes and picture a motorcycle .. it's not a BMW. It's a '67 Triumph. I have no idea of the model. And of course Steve McQueen is riding it. WHY?!

I'm guessing it's a disease, and there is no cure. Just my luck.

because Triumph is THE ultimate vintage bike. the epitome of cool. look up cool in the dictionary. a Triumph will be pictured under the definition. probably a 67. guess what? you nailed it.
