1970 ‘Dresda’ 650cc Racing Motorcycle
Registration no. ELN 577J
Frame no. D16
Engine no. DA 21070
David Degens, a fast and robust competitor in national and international motor cycle racing made his name as a builder of very high quality ‘Dresda Triton’ machines, recognized as being the best of this popular 1960’s ‘special’, so good that a ‘Dresda’ became recognized as a make in its own right. Degens’ arrival as a manufacturer is confirmed by the use of his own frame, housing his highly modified and tuned Triumph engines in the late 60’s. This example, D16, built in October 1970, is complete with authentication from Dave Degens. It is in exhibition condition as well as being ‘ready-to-race’ , having been campaigned this season to good effect.
Fitted with its original JC four-cam front brake and with SRM rods and Morgo pistons, D16 has been completely rebuilt by its present owner, as the file of bills from Dresda and Les Williams, totaling some thousands of pounds and available to view will attest, this is a fine, fast and rare machine. Complete with fairing and V5C.
