Possibly The Nicest Unit 500 Ever?

I'm not the world's greatest fan of unit 500 Triumphs, sorry if that offends but there ya go, the early pre-66 examples that have been hardtailed always look like a standard bike but with no back suspension. An inherent problem with that dumb idea of taking out the top tube and replacing it with a stiffening bar.............why ????

Then along comes Cush with the exception that breaks the rule.
This is a 67 with the benefit of a normal front section with a real top tube. 
This is a bike where the whole is more than a sum of the parts, it all fits together and just looks so right.

Great detail work and a daring choice of colour that makes it sweat class, certainly a credit to Cush for both his taste and talent.
