    At the Brit and Euro Classic show in Auckland, NZ. I'll admit one isn't a motorcycle but we can forgive the inclusion of a Morgan, can't we?

    I'd appreciate some help identifying the Triumph in this photograph of my dad. He traded an old Ford for the motorcycle back when he was seventeen. The picture was taken in the Panama Canal Zone in 1943-44.
    He only kept it for a week or two and then swapped it back for the Ford (the family story was that he dropped it a couple times, once over a wall with a six foot drop off the far side).
    I suppose that's one reason he didn't want me to ride motorcycles. Apparently I'm a much better rider than he was.

    It would have been his 94th birthday today and I was going through some old pictures and found this photo of dad and his Triumph. I think it's a 500 but would like to know more.
    A few months later he enlisted in the US Navy and flew back to the United States to begin training to become a Naval Aviator.

    His left foot doesn't look good. Rear wheel is in the air too and it looks like it got airborne after hitting something as hardtails frequently did.
