A happy marriage of Triumph power and Norton roadholding, the Triton is rightly regarded by enthusiasts as the quintessential British sports special. Dave Degens, proprietor of Dresda Autos, was one of the first special-builders to put the Triton into what might be termed 'limited production', and today this charismatic hybrid enjoys marque status. The vast majority have been constructed as solos, Triton motorcycle combinations such as that offered here being exceptionally rare.

Originally a 1959 Norton Dominator 99, the machine was reconstructed as a Triumph-engined motorcycle combination with Steib sidecar in June 1965 by the current owner, a retired motorcycle mechanic. The machine was ridden regularly for two years before being placed in storage, where it remained until 1986. Restored that same year, it was last on the road in 2007 and is currently SORN'd. Noteworthy features include leading-link front forks, Honda twin-leading-shoe front brake, 16" wheels with alloy rims, sidecar wheel brake, 12-volt electrics, full-flow cartridge oil filter, rear-set footrests, enclosed drive chain, Cibié headlight, direction indicators and a magnificent Avon Streamliner fairing. The machine is offered with old-style logbook and Swansea V5 document. Re-commissioning and the customary safety checks are advised before returning it to the road.
