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.

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
