ISDT success in the late 1940s prompted Triumph to adopt the Trophy name for their off-road styled twins. But although it retained its sporting character, the model became more of a roadster as time passed, ending up, in effect, as a single-carburettor Bonneville. More tractable than the Bonnie and more economical too, the Trophy gave little away in terms of outright performance, the bike's standing quarter-mile time and top speed being within a whisker of its twin-carburettor sibling's. Triumph enjoyed a long history of providing machines to police forces around the world, and the example offered here is based on the TR6 roadster, albeit fitted with twin carburettors. 'WUL 226G' has belonged to the vendor since 1981 and was last used in 1995. Re-commissioning or possibly more extensive restoration will be required before it returns to the road. The machine is offered with expired MoTs and an old-style V5 document.
