What a beauty! Looks a lot like the Triumph 750 commando fastback model my brother used to own when 35 years ago. For his birthday this year, I tracked down a 1:12 scale replica of his old bike, one of only three still available and only from Andover Norton over in England. He loved it.

It is a nice looking bike, but you would have to be a collector with too many dollars and not enough sense to spend that much money for it, in my opinion.

What would it have cost new in 1973? Somewhere between $1,000 and $1,500 perhaps? I hope the new buyer enjoys it sitting in a showroom, or in his garage.

My cousin bought a new, top of the line, GMC pickup truck in 1973 for $5,300 or $5,500 CAN. What`s the inflation rate since then?

The bike is beautiful, despite being infected by a Seventies color scheme. Almost makes me want to go work on my '80 750-4 LTD, except that the garage heat isn't hooked up yet.

There's always some project in the way of doing what you would prefer to do.

What's the reservoir in the side cover for?

Well, not really. The H2 did the 1/4 mie in 12.28 seconds @ 110.29 mph. Back then, that was fast. Today...well, there are alot of bikes running 10 second 1/4 mile times now.

The resivoir in the sidecover was for 2 stroke oil. The oil was not mixed with the gas in the tank, but was injected via a pump into the mixture.

You might balk at the 15 grand , but restored bikes like this, much like cars, are really more of an investment. But some of those with money might just ride the bike and add it to their "collection"

Wonder if Jay Leno has one?


Makes me feel bad now for selling mine. Don't let Glenn see this, he might raise the price of his 85 even more... LOL

Since this bike is a two-stroke I'm assuming it's an oil tank for the oil injectors, so you don't have to pre- mix the oil & fuel.

That's true, but my butt is not on one of them. I have made many 10 sec passes on four wheels, never on two. Friend I ride with has a heavily modded Busa which I am sure is low 9's, again, not with my butt on it.

I just thought someone had done one awsome restore job...
