Hurd Bird

Funny how sometimes you can have a book for years and still not notice things.

I was paging through Triumph Motorcycles - A Century of Passion and Power tonight and noticed the forks on this bike for the first time. 

Racer/Dealer Sonny Angel on his Vincent H.R.D framed, Thunderbird powered Hurd Bird. The photo was taken in 1957 outside Sonny's National City, California shop. I'd love to know where the original engine wound up.
