Triumph Thunderbird British Motorcycle Birthday Card by Trevor Mitchell

 

After the success of the 500cc Speed Twin, Edward Turner, chief designer at Triumph identified a need for a larger twin, principally for the American market. The Thunderbird was this motorcycle, with an engine capacity of 650cc.

 

The Thunderbird was an instant hit and was riden by Marlon Brando in the iconic film 'The Wild One', after which demand for all Triumph twins became almost insatiable.
