1970 Triumph T100R Daytona 500

Wow! Ain't she sweet? I owned this 500 cc vertical twin from about 1971 to 1973. In some ways, this was the "baby Bonnie", being fitted with twin carbs and performing very well for the year. The sound is classic Triumph as are the aesthetics. It was a mistake to sell this beauty, especially for the C$565 that I got for it (absolutely crazy price). I suppose getting married seemed more important at the time. I should still have it. A repaired, stripped spark plug hole was all that tarnished this otherwise beautiful example of a motorcycle.

Even though this is not a maintenance-free ride, my rating for ownership desirability is a solid 10 out of 10.
