This is one of my Tritons called “Spring Healed Jack” which I hope you like, It’s built on a 1954 Norton bolt-up wideline frame. Using a 1956 6T engine with a drive side oil seal conversion it is has a T140 crankshaft, MAP con-rods and camshafts, a Morgo 750 conversion and Morgo rotary oil pump and a 9 stud big valve cylinder head. Gearbox is a slick shift (which is disconnected) With a 5-speed gear cluster and Bob Newby belt drive clutch assembly. And finished with aluminium tanks and seat.
'Lilly Red' is a 900cc Legend TT built in 1999. In 2016 I was looking for a replacement for my pretty cool and very loud chopper, which didn't allow for the luggage needed for the travels I wanted to do. I only could hope that she would be low enough when I saw the pretty retro customised Triumph online. Well, I got lucky height wise, but pretty is not the word anymore that I would apply to my girl. Over time I added metal panniers and top box, wind screen, and hand guards. The latter long regarded as the ugliest item ever and never to touch my bike, were eventually fitted after I had to use 2l milk bottles, cut open, to keep my hands from freezing on a winter trip to Wales. She took me to France and Germany, and Guernsey we visited several times. On the last trip to the Guernsey Trifest her exhaust broke and the lovely branch members found her some new ones. I might not have a cool bike anymore, but a very reliable work horse and she sure is very, very loud now!
