10 Jul I Bought A Triumph instead of a Triumph: 1976 Triumph Spitfire
Creemore Valley Classics VIP Stories #84
I bought my 1976 Triumph Spitfire in 1999 after spending some time looking for a motorcycle I want to buy. I owned a bike back in the 1960s, and in 1999 I had one of those senior citizen moments where I decided I wanted to repeat my youth. My wife certainly did not support that idea, and when we came across this ’76 red Spitfire in an antique barn of all places, all I heard from her was….what a nice looking car, why don’t you buy it. Well, the comment got me off of that idea of buying a motorcycle. I am sure I made the right choice.
