Triton registered as a Triton 1968 This sale is for my beloved Triton. Unlike some "Tritons" the bike is registered as a 1968 Triton and includes a copy of the original log books. The bike belonged to my late father who owned the bike since 1968 but never finished the project. I am the second owner ( my father being the first) and have had the bike on the road for the past 6-7 years. The bike is in great condition with lots of polished chrome and aluminium. The clippons could with being re-chromed as this starting to craze. After modifying the kick start to suit the rear sets I never got around to chroming this. I'm reluctantly selling this great example as I just don't get around to riding it due to family commitments and feel it will go to waste if just left sat in my garage. It's taxed till August (this is free) but not MOT'd as I was going to SORN it this year. It can be MOT'd at cost if required (it's never failed!!).
