1967 Dresda 650cc Triton
Registration no. 214 BGY
Frame no. 93096
Engine no. 6T 08767

This Triton was bought in 2000 as a restoration project consisting of a 1961 ES2 frame, cycle parts and gearbox, and a 1957 Triumph 6T engine. The rebuild was undertaken by the vendor, a former Concorde flight engineer, with considerable additional input from Dresda Triton guru, Dave Degens, who converted the frame to Norton Manx specification. Pivoting on roller bearings, the box-section swinging arm is a Dresda part that enables a larger-than-standard rear tyre to be accommodated, while other special Dredsa components include the fuel tank, central oil tank, mudguards, seat, engine plates, exhaust pipes, and magnesium-alloy front brake.

The Triumph engine was rebuilt with a dynamically balanced crankshaft; new bottom-end bearings throughout; +0.060" pistons; E3134 cams; lightened timing gears; and a Dresda-modified timing-cover breather outlet. It has a 9-stud Bonneville cylinder head fitted with new valves/guides/springs and a Dresda-modified rocker oil supply. Other noteworthy features include a Tony Hayward belt primary drive; electronic ignition; and a Boyer solid-state power box. Two pairs of clip-on handlebars - standard and Dresda swan-neck - are included in the sale. Kept in dehumidified storage for the last ten years and checked over annually, this gorgeous Triton is offered with a V5C document, MoT to March 2017, and a file of all bills, photographs and other paperwork accumulated since its purchase in 2000.
