Re-Advertised due to timewaster


This bike has been built by people that know what Classic Tritons are

And how Triumph Engines work

This bike runs like a dream

 Not been sat in a garage for the past few years gathering dust - doesn't need commissioning it goes now


Original Norton featherbed (wideline) frame. the bike was originally a 500cc Norton . and then converted to a 650cc Triton in 1986 . nbsp; now the T110 engine rebuilt

It comes with the original period Number Plate with the genuine period buff log book. first  registered in 1960

(this also comes with new log book and is classified for no tax or MOT)


I purchased the bike in 2011 from  a Mr Neil Sutherland when I saw it advertised on the Car and Classic website. I was told that the bike had done no more than 256 miles and purely required recommissioning and a set of new tyres to get it on the road. I was overseas at the time and bought it as seen in this advert :

http://www. carandclassic. co. uk/car/C268417  Unfortunately I ended up in a bidding war and it cost me a small fortune to buy because it looked so good and had some credibility and provenance (see below). but I have had to spend another small fortune to put it right.


I was given the Classic bike article that featured this bike as part of a pair in 1986. It looked great then as can be seen in the magazine article which I can send. unfortunately Mr Sutherland a so called bike collector and I use that term very loosely. the owner of a now defunct website showing his collection “specialmotorcycles. co. uk “. was not entirely truthful. and in fact the bike may have looked the part and was stuffed with rags to block of all orifices for protection but merely a ploy as turned out to be a pile of cr*p and needed a rebuild to get it into this condition (lots of pics of rebuild)


A classic bike without all the modern brake discs and suspension mods from a jap bike.

See the bike on page 10 of this July Classic Bike guide. (its not a 1957 as stated it is actually a 1960).


The engine was built by two engineers who advertise in Classic bike and are pretty well known. I then took the bike to Steve Blackwell . founder and Chairman of The Triton Owners Club (where I am also a member) Steve worked on it for a many months to put it back together modifying it. and upgrading everything as well as rewiring it and giving it the look it has now. which is pure classic Triton if you can call it that. as we all know they are a labour of love and are all different and personal.


The bike has been given an expensive engine overhaul new big ends and mains etc etc to compliment the new Morgo 750 Conversion. brand new Boyer electronic ignition system for easy first kick starting and an uprated Dynamo to give 12v lighting.
