A very popular bike is Triumph 1955 Rigid Thunderbird.

This example came from a collection in QLD has been owned by the same owner for 40 years having been restored and placed into his living room some 20 years ago.

The bike is extremely rare as Rigid Thunderbirds were no longer listed as available for 1955 to the general public as the S/arm frame was introduced for that model.

There was however an outcry from various institutions for the Rigid Thunderbird so the manufacturer made it available to special order only mainly police and post offices.

This particular bike was one of a batch of 22 bikes sold new in Qld.
The lights, speedo and charging system are fully operational and this bike has had a new battery and service. As a special note the large R in the motor and fame numbers stands for RIGID not used in previous models.
