Ride Apart - You Could Own The Triumph That Inspired On Any Sunday
Or at least you can bid on it...
In 1966, Bruce Brown released the seminal surf film The Endless Summer. With a sudden flood of funds—Endless Summer brought in about $20 million at the box office in mid-60s money—Brown did what most overnight successes would do and traded in his Honda 50cc step-through for a Triumph Mountain Cub. Though upgrading to a 197cc motorbike was quite modest, the little T20 opened up a whole new world of riding to the Director.
Brown explored trails, raced in the desert, and eventually befriended Hollywood Star and professional badass Steve McQueen. The two later collaborated on the groundbreaking motorcycle documentary On Any Sunday with Brown directing and McQueen producing and appearing in the film. Now, you can own—or at least bid on—the trail bike that led to one of the greatest motorcycle films of all time.
