Are you referring to Gary Lawyers bike ? That is a beauty too, DBD with a 190mm front hub and a racing bubble tank.At present with Viraf Vatcha in Mumbai.
Dominator what i mean and being illiterate. the front tyre looks smaller and thinner than the rear, should'nt they have been of similar sized.

As far as i Remember Virafs Bike was from the Pune collection. this was mentioned by Viraf itself. just to clarify my statement and that we are talking about the same person. Viraf is a slightly plum Gentleman right.

there is another Person from Bombay with a beautiful Dominator.
Mr.N.Nullaseth. he used to have a Triumph i think of the 70's or 80's with air cooled front brake disc.

i was not sure if it was a Goldstar or another bike hence i did not write it Karl. All his bikes are superb. the triumph has been sold i did not know where. i had seen it once and was tempted to buy it. the Domi is black and Green tank and the Goldstar is silver tank and black, if i recall right.

The front is ribbed, maybe looks thinner,maybe is 3.25 x 19,not sure of the size though.Yes,Viraf is slightly plum, I guess you can call him that.I know that Gary Lawyer previously owned the bike in Mumbai and he probably got it from Thakkar in Pune.
Neville Nullaseths triumph is in Hyderabad now. It was 1972 Triumph Trophy.

Oh yes, BYH 7000, was previously owned in the 80's by Navroze Contractor.

Thanks for posting pictures Karl. when i had seen the Triumph it was light Blueish or greenish and white. Had seen it last was during the exhibition at Landmarc citi. something like the fiat in the background MMH 1021.
If i do ever get into collecting classic motorcycles i would love to get the Domi, Goldstar and the Indian chief.

An exhibit in the Birla Industrial Museum in Calcutta
A mid 1920s Douglas model CW 2 3/4 hp which appears to be doing a wheelie..
Adequate explanations as to what is occuring in this photo will be welcomed.
