Hi All

New guy here saying hello..

Always love the Norton Marque but have always been more into my 80's Jap bikes.. Please excuse me.. o_O Currently building a RD350lc hybrid and have decided to finally dip my toe into the UK bike scene. As I love my hybrids it's only natural to be drawn to the Triton's..

Looking around for a nice project there seems to be a huge Range in prices on bikes..
I know it's a crazy question and depends on the Spec but what would is a sensible price for a Tatty wideline pre engine project.

Thanks
Mark

A "slightly tatty" running WL/Pre-Unit Triton (with title, sometimes difficult to obtain) MIGHT start in the $5K range.

...but then again, how long is a piece of string?

Holy Crap Grandpaul.......I can remember my late Pops saying that very line, takes me back. Anyhow, Morgy, there is a featherbed project bike on ebay right now for 5k-ish, unless the bidding has taken it higher. saw it yesterday. edit: Oops, since I brought it up I checked and it's gone sorry Morgy I didn't put a watch on it so I can't say what it sold for
