Julian Richardson, data logging guru and head of Flextion Technology, proved that it is still possible to grab a bargain from the online auctions by taking home this rather tasty 1954 Triton. The 1955 pre-unit T110 motor appears to be freshly rebuilt and nicely slotted into the wideline Norton frame.
Roadholder forks with external springs, twin leading shoe front brake with scoop and swept back pipes prove corners have not been cut with the build of this bike. Unlike some other Tritons out there, this bike manages to looks neat, tidy and somehow “integrated” – as if the disparate parts were always meant to be together.
More usually found recording the heroics of Fast Bikes journos on exotic superbikes, it will certainly be interesting to see what lean angle Julian’s Axis data logger reports when he takes it for a burn-up to the local biker’s caff on a Sunday morning.
