Triumph Desert Sled June 13 2014

We pulled a JoMo Bud Ekins built desert sled out of long term storage (from our warehouse) to use in an upcoming photo shoot out in the desert. Amazingly all she needed was fresh petrol, carburetor strip & clean and she fired up first kick. We look forward to tearing around out in the high desert on this piece of Californian Ekins history. Many period trick-parts on this bike. We've identified a few- have fun finding the rest! Look out for a future photo shoot and road test of this awesome piece of kit, and many more bikes from the Johnson Motors collection.
