Wrong-O old buddy, old pal. It is not a factory "do-over".
It is a custom rebuild of a 05 - 08 Triumph Scrambler. They are built by a
friend of mine here in Philadelphia. They take a modern bike and remake them to
look and feel like the old ones James grew up with. The goal is to recreate the
look and feel of the 60-70's Triumphs but get the modern reliability.
THis one is called the Jack Pine.
FWIW, I prolly won't own a bike any more (I had a Choppered Bonny in the 70's)
but this is one fine ride. I loved it. He also builds (well has a prototype) of
an all electric bike. Fast, but strictly for city commuting.
