Essentially a BSA Rocket 3 radically restyled by American designer Craig Vetter, the Triumph Hurricane was the World’s first factory custom motorcycle. Around 1,100 Hurricanes were built, mostly for the US market, fewer than forty were sold in the UK.
The X-75 Hurricane was conceived in 1969 amid fears from the US dealer network that the new range of BSA Rocket 3/Triumph Trident triples looked dated compared with new and more advanced competition from Japan (particularly Honda’s CB750). Based around the BSA version of the three-cylinder engine, by the time production started in late 1972 the BSA brand had been dropped and the model was badged as the Triumph Hurricane.
With prices of Hurricanes now approaching and surpassing £25k this represents a fantastic opportunity to get the looks without the bucks $$
