The fast police patrolman on a Triumph twin was once a familiar sight on escort and patrol duties, both in the UK and many other countries. Triumph were well aware of the value to their business of this use of their machines in the public eye and, after the deletion of the police Thunderbirds and the change to unit-construction, produced their excellent Trophy series in numbers to police-specification, universally known as the 'Saint'. These were supplied as standard with fairings, calibrated instrumentation and radio-fit tanks, as specified by individual forces.

RRF 76G is one of a batch supplied to Staffordshire Police, based at Stafford, and served with that force. Eventually sold off in the normal way, retaining its police registration number, its subsequent history is unknown until bought by the vendor, already in 'civilianized' condition. He has carried out a full rebuild, both mechanically and cosmetically since 2002, the 'Saint' now being ready to ride in every respect.

Complete with bills and other papers, a photograph of Stafford's finest, a V5C for its Staffordshire number and an MOT until March 2013, RRF 76G is running beautifully and well capable of being an excellent ride, and of becoming the subject of research and further restoration back to the original 1968 police specification should the new owner so decide.
