In the very early 60’s Jennifers grandfather used to race one of these in Hamilton trials events.
To the uninitiated this looks like any other Triumph of the period but is unusual due to the external oil lines on the head, and the sprung rear hub. A combination that was only manufactured for 1-2 years by all accounts. This is the first one we’ve ever seen in the flesh.

In the UK if you fit Headlight, tail light, indicators, speedo etc you can road register Quad bikes, mad.
