A happy marriage of Triumph power and Norton roadholding, the Triton is rightly regarded by enthusiasts as the quintessential British sports special. This hybrid first emerged in the 1950s and continues to be built by professionals and amateurs alike, enjoying marque status today. One of the first specials-builders to put the Triton into what might be termed 'limited production' was Dave Degens, proprietor of Dresda Autos. Riding one of his own Dresda Tritons, Degens won the prestigious Barcelona 24-Hour Endurance Race in 1965, defeating many works-entered bikes in the process. The potentially most rewarding project offered here consists in the main of a 1959 Norton Dominator Model 99 rolling chassis, a 1958 Triumph Tiger 110 engine, and a Triumph 'slick shift' gearbox. Also noteworthy are the Dunstall silencers and glassfibre fuel tank. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed.
