1950 Triumph Thunderbird

I don't have any issues of Motorcyclist magazine from 1950 and I know there must have been some good Triumph stuff in them with what Bobbie Turner and others did with the 6T during its first year. If I get my hands on any 1950 issues I will add stuff to this post in the future. For now a couple scans from American Motorcycling. The pic above is from a 1950 Daytona visit. It is the first image I've seen of the left side of this bike. Dig the open primary with chromed clutch. Other details include the smaller competition gas tank, dual carb manifold with remote float bowls and the bitchin' headlight fairing, not to mention the sneakers.
