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. A very nice example, the triton offered here consists in the main of a 1958 Norton Dominator Model 99 rolling chassis; a 1954 Triumph Tiger 110 engine; and a Triumph 'slick shift' gearbox. Other noteworthy features include Amal Concentric carburettors; belt primary drive; central oil tank; Akront alloy wheel rims; swept-back exhaust pipes; megaphone silencers; clip-on 'bars; rear-set footrests; racing seat; John Tickle alloy top yoke; and matching Smiths instruments. In short: this machine incorporates all the classic Triton 'must haves'. First registered in June 2012 and purchased at a local auction, it currently displays a total of 28 miles on the odometer, which may well be the distance covered since its construction. The machine is offered with an expired MoT (2013), a dating letter, and a V5C document.
