I spent last summer fixing up this 1971 T100C Trophy 500, a gift from my father-in-law before he past away. Triumph of Seattle referred me to a local expert to help me work on the bike. Full rebuild of the engine, new carb, your name it we likely did it. I was able to ride the bike last fall...

Edward James spent 10 years in the 60's and early 70's building surreal sculpture gardens in the jungle just outside Xilitla. Currently owned by his former foreman's family, they're in danger of disappearing. Dali meets Indiana Jones sort of look.
