Hogs in the ‘hood: Green Triumph Trophy

Most of us love to mess with motorcycle.  But every once in a while you come across a vintage bike that is so perfect, like this Triumph Trophy, that you are glad it was left well enough alone… 

That’s how I felt when I saw this Triumph Trophy on the northside of Williamsburg.  I have been seeing plenty of the new Triumph Bonnevilles, and thought this was one of the Steve McQueen models, when I spotted it from across the street.  The green color on the tank looks close to the photos I have seen of the McQueen special edition, but upon closer inspection, this is the treat I found…

Perfect, just the way you are...

I realize this may be a Triumph Tiger (the newer 750cc model), I just don’t know enough about old Triumphs to tell.  Whatever the model, it’s got me yearning for a vintage British bike…
