This bike combines a 1967 Triumph TR6R parallel twin and ’63 Norton Atlas Featherbed frame. Started in 2007 but just recently finished, these so-called Triton builds were once popular in the late 60’s and early 70’s British cafe scene, and this one is off to a great start with lots of excellent period-style components as well as a rebuilt engine and gearbox. A nice alloy tank with Triton decals is available for an extra $800 if the fiberglass item isn’t your thing–either way we think it’s a nice looking machine. Find it here on eBay in Laredo, Texas with an $8.750 BIN. Special thanks to BaT reader Frank for this submission.
Says the seller: “On offer is a custom-built classic “Triton” cafe racer based on a ’67 Triumph TR6R Trophy 650 twin engine in a ’63 Norton Atlas slimline Featherbed chassis. There are no two Tritons alike, this one has its own special bits and features, as they all do. It’s a good runner, but needs a few minor details sorted to the buyer’s liking. This project was started way back in 2007, and has only just been fired up in August of this year. It has only been ridden on a few short test rides up and down the block.”
The twin has been treated to all new gaskets, seals, bearings, bushings, valves and guides, as well as .020 oversize pistons, new rings and more. The primary chain and clutch are fresh as well, and the 4-speed gearbox has new seals, bearings, and bushings–shafts, gears, and forks are said to remain in excellent shape. Carbs are new Mikuni VM slide throttles with pancake K&N filters, and exhaust dumps through standard Triumph headers into the seller’s choice of new round mufflers (seen here) or used megaphones.
Clip-ons are new Thomaselli items, while the rearsets come from Tarozzi. Period Domi Racer gauges are a nice match for each other and the bike, but the speedo may need ratio work to read accurately.
The Featherbed frame is fitted with made-for-purpose aftermarket billet aluminum engine adapter plates, and the swingarm runs a 3/” high-grade steel spindle upgrade kit with sintered bronze bushings. Norton Roadholder forks have been overhauled with new bushings and seals, but still need gaiters fitted to protect against water entry. Triple clamps are billet, and rear shocks are new Girling lookalikes. The front brake is a Norton twin leading-shoe item, and the rear is a single leading shoe drum, also Norton.
Akront alloy rims have been professionally re-laced, and tires are Pirellis. Though “new,” they were first purchased in 2008 and might be a good idea to replace prior to riding much.
