c.1954/55 Tri-BSA 500cc Scrambler Project
Frame no. CA7 2338
Engine no. T100 68839
Second in popularity among specials builders only to the Triton, the Tri-BSA combined the fine handling qualities of BSA's proven duplex frame with the robustness and tune-ability of the Triumph twin-cylinder engine. This combination enjoyed its greatest success in the moto-cross world where brothers Derek and Don Rickman progressed from building BSA-framed, Triumph-engined 'specials' under the Metisse name for their own personal use, to manufacturing frames and complete motorcycles. This incomplete Tri-BSA combines the frame of a 1954 BSA twin with a pre-unit Triumph Tiger 100 engine dating from 1955. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. No reserve.
