Jon sends in his former Triton.

He writes:

Built this a few years back – now sold and the new owner put it back to a ‘standard’ Triton, you know, Gold Star pipes and plain old 2 seater with a hump and he scrapped the fairing – oh well…

(an Englishman living in Australia)

I’d have to see it now but it seems to me that this would be hard to improve on. If you know the new owner ask him to send in a current picture just for fun. Cheers!

More Flawless Tritons, Race Replicas and Fellow Blogers!

I had the pleasure of finding a new blog specializing in smaller displacement bikes (mostly Honda’s) called Chalopy.  I dropped Ralph an E-mail to see if I could post a few pics of his and he responded with a trio of outstanding photo’s from his collection.  These are some really fantastic bikes!

Thank you for your e-mail.
Your mcpoftd blog is kinda like motorcycle porn.. Very nice !
I am not to fond of 2-strokes though 😉 Too much fumes.

Someone sent me pictures of a 6 cylinder Adler. The German owner simply mated three 2-cylinder engines together. Will see if I can find them again.
The attached pics were made in ’04 at the parking lot of the Classic Races races held in Barneveld (Netherlands). The local industrial area is transformed into a street circuit once a year.
Would be honoured to see my stuff back on your blog !


Thanks VERY Much for the photos.

Again, please be sure an check out his Blog for some great posts on some cool small CC motorcycles.

The first picture is a partial replica of the infamous Slippery Sam Racer.  More on that very famous original HERE.

Followed up by a pair of pics of a this beautiful Triton..


Excellent Triton from a contributor who really needs his due.

Mr Dave Martin has been supplying me with some great stuff for a while now. I’ve received so much material in such a short time that it’s made me hesitate on how to best present it. Well I can’t hold back for too long so I’m just going to start laying it down on a regular basis. Here’s one of my favorites! A jewel of a Triton. That’s a Triumph engine in a Norton (usually “Featherbed”) frame.
