Triumph TR5t Trophy Trail 1972

Entry number 004 – Entered by Jim

1972 TR5t 500cc. This bike  came back from America in 2000, was dated by the club in 2001 as a 1972. The engine is 1 month newer for some reason. The bike which looked ok when bought was unrideable with many issues, but after much work now runs really lovely as long as you are not in a hurry, very light and handles really well.

UK bike bought from a dealer part exchanging a Norton Navigator. The bike ran rough and a new carb and proper setting of ignition and valves had the bike running properly. It came with a US small tank and I decided to fit a UK large tank for better range. It has been a great bike which is very underrated.

Joint owned with me and my brother Daniel. It’s been with us for nearly 2yrs.

Britain’s final push at the Superbike Market to tackle the mighty HONDA 750/4.

It’s like a turbine to ride as the torque is amazing. You don’t have to plan overtakes that well but you do need to plan “stopping” for sure even with the twin leading shoe.

Can’t wait to get back out on her post COVID19.

Triumph Bonneville T120 1969

Entry number 001 – Entered by Nick

This is my 1969 Triumph Bonneville. I bought in 2007 from an advert on the internet. It was in good condition, but it did not have the right shape tank and the colours were wrong for a 1969.So I bought another second hand tank and got it and the mudguards painted in the orginal 1969 colours of olympic flame (a red/orange) and silver with white pin striping. The engine seized about a year after I bought it. I stripped down the engine and had the crankshaft reground by SRM and then rebuilt. I’ve to replace a number of other bits and pieces over the years that I have had it.
