Fonzi’s Triumph Rides Again!

Older Fuelfed riders and motorcycle aficionados alike can rejoice in the news that the Triumph Trophy TR5 ridden by one Arthur Fonzarelli in “Happy Days” has been found lurking in a motorcycle shop. The bike effectively vanished after the sitcom wrapped up in 1984, leaving collectors to assume that the machine met an unpleasant end at a scrap yard. The Fonz’s motorcycle was originally owned by stuntman Bud Ekins, who kept the Triumph after filming shut down. You may remember Elkins as the man behind many of Steve McQueen’s stunts, including the famous barbed-wire fence jump in The Great Escape.
