A happy marriage of Triumph power and Norton roadholding, courtesy of the latter's peerless Featherbed frame, the Triton is rightly regarded by enthusiasts as the quintessential British sports special. This hybrid first emerged in the 1950s and continues to be built by professionals and amateurs alike, enjoying marque status today. One of the first specials-builders to put the Triton into what might be termed 'limited production' was Dave Degens, proprietor of Dresda Autos. Riding one of his own Dresda Tritons, Degens won the prestigious Barcelona 24-Hour Endurance Race in 1965, defeating many works-entered bikes in the process, and went on to develop his own Featherbed-derived frame to take power units other than the original Triumph. The T140 750 cc was the second generation in the Bonneville series developed from the earlier 650 cc T120 Bonneville and was produced by Triumph in a number of versions, including limited editions, from 1973 until 1983 when the company was declared bankrupt. Licensed production of the T140 Bonneville was continued by Les Harris between 1985 and 1988 at Newton Abbot in Devon, these machines became known as 'Harris' or 'Devon' Bonnevilles.
LFE sports a Triumph Bonneville T140 engine from 1978, mated to a Norton Model 99 Wideline Featherbed frame from 1959. The DVLA V5 has a declared manufactured date of 1970, on file is a report on the 1985 MCN Classic show where the then owner, Dave Waring, won Best Triton from a field of 26 machines. In 1992 it was acquired by Michael Steer of Rotherham, he is believed to have raced it at this time. The 2000 MOT states a mileage of 20,353, which remained the same over the following two years.
In 2002 he sold it to our vendor who upgraded to what you see today. In 2009 a full engine rebuild by Nova Classics took place and a phosphor swinging arm, belt drive, electronic ignition, hand made tanks and Laverda running gear was used.
Basically unused since the build, it is sold with the V5C, V5, old MOT's, photographs, MCM report and receipts for the engine build.
