I'm no expert, and there are some here, but it looks like an old Tiger to me.
I was going through some old photos and found this picture of my brother and I on my Dads Thiumph. The picture was taken winter 1959/1960. Does anyone know what year model it may be?
1st John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

I was going to say it looked like an old Triumph. But yea, I haven't seriously looked into anything made before the 70's (mainly Hondas) or 80's.
KJ, just KJ, ok.

I wonder if still out there somewhere. It was stolen a few years after this picture was taken. My Dad blamed the Carney's. It was stolen the night the local Carnival left town.
It was at least started. There is already a puddle of oil under it.
Pics aren't clear on this computer. If it has a swing arm frame it's a 1954 or newer. If it has a sprung hub it's a 1945 to 1953 model. Prior to that, Triumphs were hardtails as far as I know. I do not recall the paint pattern on the tank either, so maybe custom paint?
I am not an expert either, but I play one on the internet. I agree with Borneo that it is a T100 Tiger, and as far as I have ever seen, it is a custom paint job. The only ones that I have ever seen have black fork skins, ( Get your mind out of the gutter, I said FORK skins) regardless of the bike's color. You will now have me spending a few hours looking at old Triumphs trying to find it. Perfect, there is nothing on tv on Sunday night.
