1949 Triumph Speed Twin (5T)
The Motorcycle shown on this page is a 1949 Triumph Speed Twin and has been bought from a dealer in the UK. The sprung hub was an option for that year, and was found for me by the dealer. The bike should have a chrome petrol tank, and the sprung hub should be amarath red as the rest of the bike. The seat springs and tail light are wrong, but minor things to find. As of putting this up, the seat springs were found on flea bay. This model was only produced for one year before it went to all amarath red. I have a couple pics below that are from "Real Classic" and their article on a 1949 Triumph Speed twin, showing what the bike should look like.
