In the late 1960s the British motorcycle industry was unable to support a national ISDT (International Six day Trial) team so frame designer and maker Eric Cheney hand built a limited number of ISDT Cheney-Triumphs. Using his own design twin down-tube frame housing a tuned Triumph 500cc engine.
Fitted with special motocross forks and large alloy fuel tanks, a Cheney Triumph was first used in the 1968 British Trophy Team.The bikes had notable success and Cheney Triumphs became well used and are still favoured today by many riders in classic motorcross competition.
This slightly modified example is registered as a 1964 Triumph and uses a later unit construction Triumph Trophy engine with 750 cc conversion a Bonneville cylinder head and twin carbs. Fitted with a period type conical rear hub, both rims are Borrani and the front has a twin leading shoe front brake. In good overall condition, the engine runs well, has had a full check over, service and a new battery fitted and is supplied with an MoT until August 2017 and UK V5C logbook.
