Hill Climber

From my buddy Vorhese.

Seems like you almost never see Triumph hill climbers. I'm curious what year this photo might be from. It appears to be a cast iron Pre-Unit. The helmet suggests late 50's or more likely early 60's. So does the spectators clothing. The tank decal might be more modern. HD guys, is that a stock or aftermarket springer? That guy is going for it.

It's very odd. It looks liek a stretched Harley flathead frame. There is no pre-unit gearbox that I can see. And the front wheel appears to be a 20" or 21" witha minihub! weird setup for hills
