The History of 2-wheeled Speed

Just doing some work in the shed n have this lineup of “British Babes” to share…

Starting on the left: 63 T120R flat tracker; 1952 stock Thunderbird; 1972 pristine X75 Hurricane; 1957 T100 pre-unit on Norton featherbed frame… an original and illusive Triton; 2013 Thruxton.

For me, from the 52 to the 57 was an amazing period of 2-wheeled speed. The 60s brought more speed and, of course, the 72 was the “last of the mohicans” when it comes to old school Brit babes on 2-wheels.
