King of Cool – The Scrambler

Posted on March 29, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Scrambler. No Comments

For guys who really want to be like Steve, the Triumph Scrambler is the bike for you. You can even order a “278” number board, McQueen’s entry when he raced in the 1964 International Six-Day Trials in East Germany. I have to be honest and say that I personally believe Steve McQueen is probably one of the coolest men to have walked this planet. And yes I love this modern take on the classic.

The Scrambler is based largely on the Bonneville T100 streeter. Although the suspension has been raised 2 inches over the Bonneville, for improved ground clearance. So you can take it off road onto dirt tracks but I am told its not the most comfortable ride.

I love that Triumph are still making these nostalgic bikes. I am not sure I would choose this over the Thruxton though. I think the Thruxton would perform much better, but as for cool factor this has McQueen’s personal stamp of approval. What more could you ask for?

This Frenchman Jean Francois Vicente is a man of my own heart. After riding ducati’s and Velocette thruxton he wanted something a bit more reliable and then discovered yamaha sr500’s.

Ace History lesson

I found this shot of a beautiful old 4 cyclinder Ace Motorcycle from 1920 and had to post it. The Ace Motor Corporation didn’t last long after numerous owners. It changed hands for the last time in 1927, when it was purchased by the Indian Motocycle Company. The Ace name was discontinued after a few years. Indian motorcycle production continued for another 25 years until 1945.

This old black and white shot of these guys riding the Ace motorcycles makes me want to race em…

I have seen this pic of the cb750 with the hottie in bikini many times. Hard to forget that beautiful body… and the girl looks alright as well. Found out this bike was recently on ebay and was sold by kgcycles. Went to their website and they have some sweet looking bikes. This cb750 is one of the best I have seen. Would love to know how much it went for, if anyone knows can they let me know?
