Title: Do my eyes deceive me? '49ish Rigid A10?

...with Ann Margaret aboard. She's a bit older now (both of them).

Hi Richard,

yes it is a Triumph engine.

But I can understand you, having only eyes to Ann.

Cheers Klaus

Thanks, Klaus. What is the giveaway I should have seen? Is it so obvious in that picture that any self-respecting A10 owner should have picked it out?

Any fantasies I may have had regarding Ann Margaret have been subdued for some time, but looking back at he old pictures may change that. *red* *smile*

The timing gearcase is decidedly Triumph, but other than that it all blurs together...………….

The pushrod tube gives it away

She appeared in official Triumph adverts in America back in the day, so she had no taste in bikes at all and it's doubtful she'd be pictured on a Beezer.

She suffered three bustled ribs and a fractured shoulder when she was thrown off a motorcycle in rural Minnesota in 2000 aged 59.

Not sure if she still rides, but she was full of spunk back in the day!

Not exactly sure how to take this, whichever, I'm sure it's true. *whistle*

If I knew jack about Triumphs, the pushrod tube would have been a giveaway. I thought it was some kind of chopper dress-up. But for that, I think I could be forgiven mistaking the timing cover, given how little is shown in the 80 deg. off axis view.
