I know it should be Tuesday to post a Triton but i picked this one up yesterday and its a belter. I bought it first in 2008 when it was an ex sprint race bike, a non runner and unregistered. I sold it to Paul in Sheffield shortly after and he spent 4 years and much money getting it to the standard it is at now.
Fully rebuilt engine with Morgo 750 barrels, rotary pump, 3134 cams, R followers, gas flowed splayed head, BTH electronic mag and those wonderful Gardner carbs rebuilt by Ron Gardner personally at the age of 91. Transmission is an AMC box with Commando diaphragm clutch and Hayward belt. It goes very well (for an over 60) and stops like no other brit bike i've had with the Grimeca 4ls front brake. Nothing was left untouched, bronze bushed swinging arm, Lansdowne Engineering fork damping conversion, Scitsu rev counter, new alloy tanks (he liked them with the understated brushed finish)..... The only things i remember it having first time round are the exhausts which are loud, very ! He also got it registered with DVLA as a 1960 Triton. It isn't a tarts handbag, its a fully functional antisocial weapon that will cause neighbours to hate you, exactly what a motorcycle should be.
It was ridden for just over 100 miles in 2013 and then he put it at the back of the garage and bought a 1098 Ducati.
I didn't buy it to sell, i bought it because it's wonderful but if you cant live without it .........

1982 Harley Shovel FLT for sale. French registered from new, it was bought by my friend Pete 20 yrs ago to keep at his place in Annecy and occasionally ride home to North Yorkshire. During that time the motor top end was rebuilt by Matts Machine shop and gearbox rebuilt with new Andrews gears, it runs spot on.
The last time it was used was to ride back to the UK when Covid hit and it has remained here unused since. It will need some re-commissioning and small jobs, clutch drags, left front caliper needs freeing off, battery doesn't hold charge and general servicing.
It comes as shown with genuine bags and crash bar covers.
Currently there are no registration papers, we are trying to find these although they are in France which doesn't make things easy. There is no NOVA certificate, import duties have not been paid. You would need a dating certificate and then pay import duty/VAT (5% on a vehicle of historic interest). I can supply the appropriate receipt.
Price is £5,800. I can help arrange delivery within the UK.
You can contact me on 07969050019 or firstname.lastname@example.org
