1984 Triumph 744cc Trident T150V 'Rob North' Replica
Registration no. KHB 240P (see text)
Frame no. ME00117
Engine no. T150V NK45136
Inspired by the BSA-Triumph works racers of the early 1970s, this superb road-legal special was built by expert restorer Eric Parr (hence the E.D.P. initials) in 1983-1984 and won the 'Classic Bike of the Year' award at the 1984 International Classic Bike Show. It later featured in Classic Bike magazine (December 1984 issue), appearing on the front cover (copy available). The frame is the legendary Rob North type used by the factory's all-conquering triples in 1971; it was obtained new from Miles Engineering, who made nearly 500 such frames. A box-section swinging arm allows a wide rear tyre to be fitted, while twin 10" front discs provide powerful braking. The engine is from a late five-speed Trident T150V.

Other noteworthy features include a 3-into-1 exhaust with megaphone silencer; Akront alloy wheel rims; and a works replica 'letterbox' fairing complete with oil cooler. Twin headlamps are fitted in the style of a 1970s endurance racer, and the rear lamp is neatly incorporated into the seat which, like the aluminium oil tank, replicates factory short-circuit items. The stickers all relate to products actually used. With 120mph-plus performance available, the addition of rear-view mirrors is understandable. 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. There is no registration document with this Lot.
