Triumph Thunderbird 1950

This classic British motorcycle is a 1950 Thunderbird. For the American export market the Thunderbird was painted black which gave rise to the nickname "Blackbird". In post-WWII America, Triumphs were the hot ticket. After 1950, more Triumphs were sold in America than in any other country. Sales increased with the 1953 release of Marlon Brando's The Wild One in which he rode a Triumph Thunderbird.
