This stunning example of a 650 Triumph Triton has all the right credentials, the buff logbook shows that it was registered as a 'rebuilt' machine in 1965 having been purchased from new by the iconic Dave Degans Dresda.
It retains many original features and some updated modifications done by Dresda 55 years later, including the original Norton frame & twin leading brakes and Akront wheels.
Although started & ridden on a regular basis this is an original concourse example from the iconic Cafe Racer era. Starts on the first kick, rides beautifully and always turns heads when out on the road.
No expense has been spared in keeping this impressive classic running and roadworthy.
The original gearbox casing has just been replaced due to the ravages of time along with new bearings and seals throughout.
The engine has had the cylinder head totally rebuilt with new valve guides, studs, seals, gaskets and cam shaft. Also new main bearings, pistons, rings and gaskets have been fitted.
New parts include:
Kick start spring and shaft,
Tony Haywood primary drive belt conversion with new clutch,
Engine sprocket and drive chain.
Dresda stainless steel mega exhaust system,
34mm Amal carbs,
A complete rewire including electronic ignition,
New Dresda Manx external spring kit,
New adjustable Alf Hagon rear shocks,
Dresda swinging arm,
Viewing highly recommended.
