    It certainly did, mate. I'd thought around 1975...

    What was the bike that Marlon Brando rode again in The Wild One? If I remember, that looked pretty cool, too

    I also love that (for its looks). Was it from the mid-70s too, Grant? You can't beat spoked wheels and lots of nice chrome to polish!!

    came out in Japan in 71, but a few years later for us and went of for a while. they updated the standard t to this GT with a Ram Air cylinder head and front disc. Could fairly move too considering it was just a standard production 250cc

    Think it was a 'T' Bird. (Triumph Thunderbird 650)

    They cocked up the film The Great Escape, by having Steve McQueen escaping from the Jerries on a similar sixties Triumph. Sort of ruined the film for me.
