I'm in Love!

David Edwards' love of Triumph and Indianaplois Speedway 500 has come together in a beautiful custom Triumph motorcycle that carries the legendary colors of Bill Vukovich's 1953 Indianapolis 500-winning Fuel Injection Special. The Kurtis Kraft Offy-powered car that Vukovich drove to a dominating 3.5-minute victory carried a striking battleship-gray paint scheme with a red circle serving as background for a yellow No. 14, all of which receive tribute on Edwards' motorcycle.

The customized bike, featuring a 1947 Tiger 500 engine placed in the frame of a Triumph 350cc 3T, is paying homage to California native Vukovich, who won back-to-back "500's" in 1953-54, and led the race in 1955 when he was tragically killed in an accident.
