Phil Lalemant's Black 1955 TR5

Bought through ebay last September when the US dollar was taking a now common dive, Phil got this all-alloy engined Triumph for a song and had it shipped from California back across the Atlantic to his home in Hossegor, South west of France.

Sunny skies, surf and a swingarm frame TR5. Phil added a matching P-pad and also plans to replace the large oil tank & tool box with a small oil tank from a rigid frame Triumph as well as adding some cocktail shakers to the exhaust. Like a lot of modern day vintage motorcycle enthusiasts Phil has a blog of his own. I found it to be very entertaining.

If you have a bike that fits any of the styles covered in this blog and want to show it off, send me some pics!
