A '53 Triumph should fetch a good price at auction.

By the looks on the link someone's been feeding and doing a lot of wrench-turning, It's a lovely Triumph Tiger.

Lucky 70 year-old man..

Back in 68 in ElPaso,I rode an old 500 BSA.The desert climate keeps bikes in good shape.(cept for the air filter)

Sure does...we've recovered many bikes from barns etc,that have been dumped years ago and are perfect for resto or whatever. My mate had a very nice T160 that had been left leaning against a wall,outside......it looked in almost perfect condition.....until you walked to the other side....completely faded away.....hahahahahaha(danged Calif. sun,eh?) And a little rust on each wheel where water had sat. He reckoned that was proof it does rain in Southern California.....hahaha
