Customer motorcycle
The motorcycle was a piece of junk. Completely beaten up.
Client just wanted a restoration but for something else.

“La Adelita” is one of the most famous corridos of the Mexican Revolution. Over the years, it has had many adaptations. This particular version of the ballad was inspired by a Durangan woman who joined the Maderista movement in the early stages of the Revolution and fell in love with Madero. She became a popular icon and the source who documented the role of women in the Mexican Revolution; she gradually became synonymous with the term soldadera female soldiers who became a vital force in the Revolutionary War efforts due to their participation in the battles against Mexican government forces.

Today, it is argued that Adelita came to be an archetype of a woman warrior in Mexico, and a symbol of action and inspiration.

The owner is Mexican American who grew up in Southern California.
Bought the donor bike while living and working in Tijuana Mexico and spending time in Baja desert. Inspired by desert sleds and scramblers and wanted something drivable down the Baja coast (some day) while fitting his style.

The color is from the Triumph 1965 – cactus.
