Project Description

1973 Triumph X75 Hurricane

PRICE: $30,000

It’s sort of a motorcycle fairy tale, isn’t it?  Young kid in Illinois doodles his dream bike on the back of a notebook and, lo and behold, the bigwigs at the world’s greatest motorcycle company see it and decide to put it into production.

Well, sort of.

The truth behind the Triumph Hurricane is more convoluted than that, but, in its condensed form, it acknowledges that custom bikes have always been dreamed about and built.  Studious engineers in their garages trying to make improvements over poor quality or badly designed parts or ham-fisted shade tree mechanics throwing myriad aftermarket parts in an attempt to destroy any semblance of what left the factory.

The Hurricane succeeded not because it was a better bike than its forefathers, the BSA Rocket 3 and Triumph Trident.  It succeeded because it looked so damn good and sounded so damn good.  The ultimate boulevard cruiser.  Hey, look at me.  I have a bright orange bike with THREE upswept mufflers.  People notice this bike.

And this bike is a great one.  Possibly one of the nicest all original machines out there.  Only 1200 miles since new.  ‘Cus when they look this good sitting still, you don’t need to ride it for people to notice.
