1950 cool bike

Here’s Jared Weems again.
He’s going to be rebuilding a 1950 Sppedtwin with a bit of history.
This is a chopped down Triumph that belonged to a Galloping Goose member (yes, those guys who caused the 1%er clubs to be born in Hollister). This club member ultimately became a Judge in the US - this is his original bike - being rebuilt by Jared. It seems to have been sabotaged (sand in the engine and gearbox).

Just for interest - Jared built a copy of one of only two of David Mann’s (Easyrider’s centre spread painter in the 70s) pictured Triumphs
