Also known as the ‘Adventurer’, the Trophy Trail was introduced in November 1972. A new off-road model, the TR5T deployed Triumph’s existing 500cc twin-cylinder engine in a chassis that looked remarkably similar to that of the single-cylinder BSA Victor. The workers’ occupation of Triumph’s Meriden factory in the autumn of 1973 halted production, which did not resume fully until March 1975. The 500cc models were dropped once the backlog of machines impounded at the factory had been cleared, but before then a number had been released in the preceding autumn. With the Trophy Trail’s passing, Triumph’s long line of enduro-styled half-litre roadsters, which stretched back to the original Trophy of 1948, came sadly to an end. This well presented example was restored to standard specification in 2005 by Bol D’Or Motorcycles, of Kent, work carried out having included stove enamelling the frame and cycle parts, rebuilding the wheels, and fitting a new battery and tyres. The machine has covered relatively few miles since the rebuild’s completion and remains in commensurately good condition. There are no documents with this Lot.
