I bought a Roadster in yellow in June of 1971 from Town & Country Cycle in Fullerton, CA. It was sold as a 1971 1/2 model. We now know that it was actually a left over 1970 model but I didn't know it at the time and wouldn't have cared if I had known. I liked the lack of turn signals and the steel controls better than the new Lucas controls on the latest model. I paid $1400.00 US dollars. As I recall, this was more than the new Triumphs were selling for but I really HATED the new oil in frame models and thought the Norton was more motorcycle.
