c.1961 Triton 750cc ‘Café Racer’
Registration no. VSK 575
Frame no. 14 95852
Engine no. TR6 DU16350
A happy marriage of Triumph power and Norton roadholding, the Triton is rightly regarded by enthusiasts as the British sports special. Owned by the vendor for the past 15 years, this example combines a unit-construction 1965 Triumph TR6 Trophy engine with the later - and more desirable - ‘slimline’ version of Norton’s classic Featherbed frame, the latter dating from circa 1961. The engine has been enlarged to 750cc by means of a Morgo conversion, while the modified cylinder head runs twin-plug ignition and is reported as ‘unleaded’ compatible (with octane supplement). Other noteworthy features include a five-speed gearbox, Dunlop alloy wheel rims, stainless-steel spokes, large-capacity fuel tank, single racing seat, rear-set footrests, clip-on handlebars, alloy head steady, Tomaselli throttle, 12-volt electrical system and a stove-enamelled frame. Restored in 1992 and described as in good condition throughout, the machine benefits from a recent service and is offered with VMCC dating certificate, current MoT/road fund licence and Swansea V5 registration document.
