Had a 62 5TA (Speed Twin) when I was 19. Was done out in street-scrambler style with knobblies, high pipes e.t.c. Looked better than the new “Scrambler” from Triumph (sorry Rhodie!), but I probably pushed it as far as I rode it during the time I had it. [:(]

That sounds about right Jeff, but if you managed to ride it as far as you pushed it you must have had one of the more reliable ones then

Jerry, where are you based? I thought you were in Pattaya but maybe you are in CNX? The reason is that today at CM Speedway bike racing meet, there was a black 5TA! Was done out semi-street scrambler but with the nacelle on and low level pea shooter pipes. It looked “well used” and didn’t have a plate. Same bike?
