This Triumph Metisse formerly belonged to Sam Griffiths, owner DNG Race Engines of Suckley, Worcestershire. Sam began his scrambling career on the ex-Terry Sleeman Triumph Metisse in 1971 and it is believed that this bike harks back to those beginnings but with added enhancements that Sam developed over his career as a master engine-builder. The Metisse is believed to be the last bike Sam built for himself, and since 2010 it has enjoyed considerable success at various events including the Red Marley hill climb. The vendor purchased the Metisse from Sam Griffiths' estate in 2017, since when it has taken part in all the Bromyard Speed Festivals and competed in both Bringsty Grand Prix events at the Goodwood Revival.
