First 40 miles on my 57 Thunderbird since restoration. Restored in 2001 but only started for the first time about a month ago. Great to ride finally. Still chasing a few bits and pieces but it is almost complete. Here is a link to a few other pics. Thunderbird pics
awesome lookin bike man. you have done a good job on that, needs a few more miles on it now.
I hope to do a lot, lot more miles on it as soon as I can. I wish I could take the credit for how it looks but I can't. All I did was get it running (still fine tuning that part), organize the paint job and chase up minor bits and pieces (which I have now finally done). The previous owner did all the restoration work (and did it well).
I had a custom '69 Trident years and years ago that came with a '57 Thunderbird tank - the Trident is long gone but I still have the tank. maybe one day I can get a bike to go with it! gorgeous machine - I'm completely jealous. b
