Triumph Thunderbird 1951 Sirkegian

As a youngster, Bobby Sirkegian raced this stripped-down 1951 Triumph Thunderbird. Now restored, it's up for sale in a Bonhams auction. Already making a name for himself in early Southern California drag racing, running and winning against full grown men, 13-year-old Bobby traveled with his bike-dealer father to Wendover, Utah in 1953 to take part in the fifth annual Bonneville Speed Week. Because Bonneville officials knew of the youngster’s prowess on a drag bike, he was given special permission to run on the salt flats.
