Triton 650cc 'Café Racer'
Frame no. N14 76985
Engine no. T110 019061

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. This example consists of a 1958 'pre-unit' Tiger 110 engine and the Featherbed frame from a Dominator 99, the latter dating from the same year. We are advised that the machine was built in the mid-1990s by Terry Hobbs, renowned motorcycle engineer, Triton builder and proprietor of Terry Hobbs Motorcycles in Plymouth. Finished to an exacting standard, it features a twin-leading-shoe front brake, Smiths rev counter, oil pressure gauge and a Smiths stopwatch. Unregistered, the Triton is believed unused since its construction and since acquisition by the vendor some 14-or-so years ago has been kept on display and not ridden. Re-commissioning and the customary safety checks will be required prior to use. There are no documents with this Lot.
