Triumph 649cc 'Warbird' Sprinter
Engine no. to be advised

Sold for £ 1,610 (US$ 2,143) inc. premium
Triumph 649cc 'Warbird' Sprinter
Engine no. to be advised
This dramatic looking sprinter consists of a 649cc Triumph 'pre-unit' engine and Norton/AMC gearbox mounted in a home-built frame, the top tube of which also serves as the fuel tank. The machine is believed to have been built by the Baron (possibly Barron) family, who also experimented with car-engined sprint/drag bikes. At least one of these car-engined machines was called Warbird and it carried the same Iron Cross decal. The engine is obviously highly developed, featuring through-bolt location of the cylinder barrels and heads, and twin Wal Phillips fuel injectors.
