Electric Triumph

Canadian Motorcycling, April  1971
Guy on the left,"Some day people will actually make production electric motorcycles, not like this jury-rigged thing"
Everyone else, "HAHA HA HA...

This electric conversion of a Triumph Trailblazer was built for the Royal Signals motorcycle display team (six members shown) for use in their indoor trials circuit. The girl at the center of attention is apparently actress Caron Gardner.
 I wish the picture was better, it's hard to make out details of the conversion, other than the bungee-corded automotive battery mounted on a piece of plywood.
