1972 Triumph T100C

Congratulations to John Calicchio and Triumph Classic Motorcycles of Costa Mesa for winning Bike of the Month with their recently finished 1972 Triumph T100C. The Triumph is owned by their customer Barry Sulken of Pasadena. John won WD-40 Motorcycle Chain Wax provided provided by the WD-40 Company.

John won once before in February 2015 with his 1971 Triumph Bonneville Super Moto.

The 100% stock T100C took over a year to restore in John's shop. Brian 'Tink' Tinkler was the chief mechanic on the project.

Thanks John, Andrea and Tink for bringing it to our meet. See all the photos in our May Gallery.
