So, I started watching the episode of Naked Speed (successor to that Cafe Racer program) the other night, and they were building a Hinckley Tritonhttp://www.velocity.com/tv-shows/naked-speed/videos/the-beginning-of-a-modern-triton/
Now, I couldn't hang in there to watch to whole show because they are such a bunch of poseurs (IMHO). Brian Fuller does my head in, I'm afraid.
The original, way-back-when Tritons came into being because there was a bunch of Norton chasis without engines (engines having been robbed for car racing) and a bunch of Triumph engines from wrecked bikes because Triumphs had dodgey handling at that time. Bodge to two parts together and end up with a pretty decent bike for not too much money. OK, that makes sense.
But now, to take a good, modern bike (Hinckley Triumph) and take only the engine (what happens to the other 80% -- scrap it??), to put it into an old, inferior (
) frame, for a stupid amount of money, is just daft!
Flame away ....
