A 1938 Triumph 5T Speed Twin. Only two are known in existence due to the Triumph Factory getting Bombed during WW2. I was fortunate enough to run across one and have the opportunity to paint this outstanding motorcycle. The perfect blend of form and function. Painting the controls, brake levers, choke...was a pleasure. The chrome flowed and lined up in a very fluid way. These parts were hand made and not computer  CNC machined. Amazing craftsmanship from a by gone era. A true honor to paint and save this for future generations.

Photographed outdoors from a private collection in Arizona. Supposedly the other 38 resides in Denmark.

The Original Painting is in a private collection, with the bike, in Carefree AZ. 2015 C
