1970 Triumph T120 Street Tracker

Bernard of the Coffee Bar Cowboys, who is also known as "Scorpion" and who lives in Burgundy, France, made available these pictures of his very striking 1970 Triumph T120 Street Tracker of which the engine capacity has been boosted to 750cc by a Morgo 750 barrel, and which rides in a custom frame made by Steelheart Engineering of Canterbury, England.

Bernard: "I wonder if you'd be interested in using some pics of my T120 powered street tracker? As far as I know the Triumph engine casings are 1970, but most of the insides were renewed when it was up rated to a 750."
