Hello Steve,

Just wanted to share some pictures of what was my daily rider this season. It is a back to bone stock 1970 Triumph Trophy 250. Matching numbers with the original paint on the tank. It is actually for sale if you could maybe post it to try to help me out. The wife and I are relocating cross country soon and she said I have to pick one motorcycle to go… darn. 
Great site!

I don’t do a lot of “for sale” post but this is one of my favorites.  Wish I could buy it myself.

Reaader Ride with "Bonus Triumph Pics.

Aaron sent me a nice silhouette shot of his stable the other day along with a link to his flickr stream.  While perusing his photos I stumbled across this stunner of a custom Triumph Scrambler.  WOW!  Aaron I hope you don’t mind (and if you do I’ll pull them immediately) but I’m a huge Triumph fan and couldn’t pass these up. 

By the way your original submital is excellent and included below. I’d love to see more angles of the Duck and especially Beemer.

Thanks Very Much

Aarons original note:
I got a bit inspired on Sunday and had some fun with my DSLR and Photoshop; I ended up with what I think is a very good photo of my two bikes (’75 BMW R75/6 and ’06 Ducati Multistrada 1000s) that you and your readers might like. The original is attached, and other sizes are at my flicker acct (under a Creative Commons license, so feel free to use what you like), here:

Here’s the shanghaied Triumph…

And the original submittable.  Excellent Shot!

UPDATE: One of a Kind Custom Triumph Scrambler. Freaking Wow…

UPDATE: Here is the previous post I had of this beauty from Dec 09. Man what a looker!

I’m sure I’ve posted this bike on here in the past but I don’t have time to dig up the link at the moment.

Now it’s FOR SALE

The description from the for sale ad lists the following:

Hey come on Triumph! Build us all one!

One more "Jack Pine Special"

Thanks to our official MPOTD roving reporter Mike Skelton for the find. I love that this pic shows that the bike is ridden for it’s intended purpose and not just a show queen. I bet it”s a decent handler to boot. Hey Triumph how about a stripped down version for the general public! I imagine it’s be a bit more practical with the sidepipe but I still like the dualies.
