Return of the Hurricane

Back in  May I painted the tank and bodywork of this simply stunning 1972 Triumph X-75 Hurricane. When it came into the shop all I had was the part you see in orange. As part of that original entry I linked to a Wikipedia entry because so few people knew of the bike or what it looked like.

But no more. The owner has the bike assembled and today he sent me these pictures. The bike is simply knee-weakening gorgeous, and I am glad to have played a part, no matter how small, in getting this icon back on the road.
