Sleds & Sickles Triumph

Eric Secor's well-ridden Triumph embodies perfectly the style of "sickle" you'll find on this SoCal resident's popular blog. is Eric's labor of love and personal homage to hot rods and bobbers, and his bike is that website's own best mascot.

Here's the details on Eric's Thunderbird, in his own words.

Owner: Eric Secor
Location: La Quinta, CA



Year, make, model, modifications: stock 1958 Triumph 6T Thunderbird 650
Frame: stock front loop with David Bird hardtail
stock front end with MCM fork covers
Tire/wheel size and style: 18" rear drum; 19" front drum with Avon rubber



Favorite thing about this bike: My friend found the tank at a swap meet and it changed the whole look of my motorcycle
Thanks to: Wes, Kutty, Papa Paul, Marty

that is an awesome scoot. I'm starting a triumph build and this bike is definitely giving me inspiration!!!

Ahhm... nota 6 pra essa moto! Apesar de ser uma moto bonita em geral, suas formas e simplicidade não me agradaram!

(Great overall bike, I think the headlight is a little small... my 2 cents)

Thanks to all the guys who were willing to lend their time to help Eric make this bike happen. I don't see my thank you up there, but being good company helps, right?! :)

Yeh this was in another post earlier on wasn't it, I dig this ride, damn that's some amazing shine on the cases.

Absolute simplicity at its best. Proving that less is MORE! Nice whip bro.
Truly inspiring.

PS. God IS love fosho! Plain and simple.

I hate to throw a wet towel on everyone's comments, but that is NOT a Triumph... sorry.

If you look at the sand in the pictures, you will see pretty quickly that there is no oil spots beneath the bike. POSER!

( I may be jealous here... just a teeny bit)

Commented on 1-14-2010 At 10:14 pm

very cool, paint is on point, the whole set up is on point...good shit
