The Triton offered here consists of a 1960 'pre-unit' Bonneville engine and the Featherbed frame from one of Norton's 650cc models. Other noteworthy features include twin Amal Concentric carburettors, Norton gearbox, Tony Hayward belt primary drive, alloy wheel rims, Hagon shock absorbers, bespoke stainless exhaust system (by Nick Paravani) and what appears to be a double-sided Grimeca front brake. 'AFM 718A' was already a Triton, albeit very scruffy and of inferior specification, when it was acquired in 2009 by the late Derek Wilkinson, who painstakingly transformed it into the concours-winning machine it is today. The current vendor's father-in-law, Derek was a highly accomplished engineer who worked for Lotus Cars for 38 years, first for their Formula 1 team and then for the company's renowned Prototypes Division. A lifelong motorcycle enthusiast, he retired in 2006 and began restoring bikes as a hobby, including a Honda Benly that won a national award. His two-page account of the Triton's rebuild, published in the Triton Owners Club's newsletter, makes fascinating reading (recommended). Derek completed the rebuild in 2012 but, sadly, lost his battle with cancer and passed away soon after, though he did have the satisfaction of seeing it take 'Best in Show' awards at both the Thetford and Wimbotsham Fenman classic bike shows. Described by the vendor as in generally excellent condition, this unique award-winning Triton is offered with V5C registration document.
