When NVT collapsed, race-shop foreman Les Williams set up a business specialising in BSA-Triumph triples and built a number of replicas of the famous racer, 'Slippery Sam'. Les also developed the ultimate street triple: the T160-based Legend café racer, which first appeared in the early 1980s. Hand built, the Legend was produced in limited numbers into the early 1990s; it is estimated that only 60 were made and today this ultra-rare 'classic superbike' is highly sought after. Displaying a total of 4,183 miles on the odometer, this example has an engraved plaque on the top yoke stating that it was built by L P Williams for Stan Trowell. Acquired for the Museum in October 2003, the Legend comes with old/current V5C/V5 documents, both incorrectly recording the frame/engine number prefix as 'C4' rather than 'CK'. The machine's mechanical condition is not known; accordingly, prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves with regard to its condition, completeness, correctness, or otherwise prior to bidding.
