An unashamed exercise in 'badge engineering', the Triumph TR25W Trophy was basically the BSA B25 Starfire in a new set of clothes. There were a number of cosmetic changes to identify the new model as a Triumph, while those of greater engineering significance included an alteration in gearing, adoption of larger wheel sizes and fitting of an upswept exhaust system to suit the Trophy's intended role as a trail bike. Introduced in 1968, the Trophy continued with relatively minor changes until BSA-Triumph's major revamp of its range in 1970 brought with it a new 'oil bearing' frame, conical hubs and a change of name to 'Blazer', with Street Scrambler and Trail versions available also. This TR25W was purchased by the current owner in January 2009 (receipt on file) and then re-commissioned by Vehicle Restoration Services of Maidstone, Kent. Kept as part of his private collection and not used since acquisition, 'AAN 190G' should require only relatively gentle re-commissioning before returning to the road. The machine is offered with VRS invoice (for £772), expired MoT certificate (February 2010), Swansea V5 document and interesting email correspondence from the original owner.
