Triumph 3HW with leopard print seat
Chap looks happy with his civilianised ex-WD Triumph 3HW. Cheapo ex-army bike modernised with leopard print dual seat represented motorcycling reality for many in postwar austerity Britain. Big leather gauntlets are the only concession to riding gear but the black suede 'brothel creeper' boots are a nice touch of style.
