Description

1974 Triton 650cc 'Café Racer' Project
Registration no. PAF 840M
Frame no. R14 92075
Engine no. 6T 46965

A happy marriage of Triumph power and Norton roadholding, the Triton is rightly regarded by enthusiasts as the quintessential British sports special. This hybrid first emerged in the 1950s and continues to be built by professionals and amateurs alike, enjoying marque status today. First registered as a 'Triton' in 1974, this example consists of a 1954 'pre-unit' Thunderbird engine and the Featherbed frame from a Dominator 99, the latter dating from 1960. The current vendor acquired the machine in 1993. Incomplete and only loosely assembled, it has been kept in dry storage for some considerable time and will require not a little work to finish off. Sold strictly as viewed, the machine is offered with an old-style buff logbook (relating to the engine) and an old-style V5.
