Owned by the vendor since 1979, this one-off Triumph Metisse retains its original engine/gearbox; front forks; wheel hubs; rear brake; front brake (one of); handlebars; and speedometer/rev counter. The following Metisse parts have been used: frame and swinging arm (oil in frame); seat and fuel tank; side panels; headlight and brackets; footrests and brackets; and the rear brake and gear levers. The machine also incorporates some Norman Hyde performance parts: 850cc kit (barrels and pistons); second front brake; sintered iron clutch plate; and a heavy-duty drive chain and sprockets. New parts used include aluminium wheel rims (5" rear); tyres; hand-made exhaust/megaphone (stainless steel); smaller oil cooler; Amal Concentric carburettors (same as original); and Boyer electronic ignition. Importantly, P&M have overhauled the cylinder head with hardened valve seats to accommodate unleaded petrol. Last run earlier this year, this stunning Triumph Metisse special is offered with a V5C Registration Certificate.
