Amazing huh?! Donald DeVault of Omaha just found out that his 1953 Triumph Tiger 100 motorcycle has been found at the Port of Los Angeles. It was waiting to be put on a boat for Japan. Luckily for him it was found just in the knick of time. DeVault, who is now 73-years-old, is excited for it to return to his garage. 46 years is long time!
The motorcycle was only worth $300 in 1967. Today the it is worth around $9,000, according to tax records. DeVault was sold on the Triumph originally when he saw “Li’l Blue Bitch” airbrushed on the side of the gas tank. We’ll call this a Wonderful Wednesday!
