This recently restored 650cc bike was originally built up in 1970 and registered as a ‘Triton’ with a buff logbook to a London resident on the 5th June 1970. Powered by a pre unit Triumph T120 spec engine but with a 9 stud head and concentric Amal carbs. Fitted with an alloy tank Norton Roadholder front forks and a TLS front brake on alloy rims front and rear, the rear with a conical hub. During the restoration the engine was rebuilt with new main and big end bearings, sludge trap and transmission side oil seal conversion. The gearbox was also rebuilt and new drive chain fitted. In addition the whole bike was repainted and the frame had new powdercoat. Less than 200 miles have been covered since this work was completed, the result is a stunning looking Cafe Racer in absolutely first class ‘ show condition’.
Earlier history of this bike has also revealed that it was raced extensively in the 1980’s at club level, winning its class in the Southern 100 on the IOM, pictures of the bike in action at Mallory Park are included in the history file. It is supplied with the original ‘Buff’ logbook, a V5C logbook and an MoT until June 2014.
A really beautiful bike, with an interesting history. Thoroughbred Cafe Racers don’t get much better than this.
