The Ultimate Triton Bike Unveiled
“As English motorcycle fans, we choose to use a Norton featherbed frame and a Triumph 750 Bonneville engine,” said Prat. “But we didn’t want to make the thousandth café racer or Triton; we decided to follow our own road. We started designing a mix of Batman’s motorcycle with a T.Rex fastback and Cat Woman’s curves. Inspiration came directly from the culture of comics.”
“Purists will say that it’s a sacrilege,” added Prat, “but why do we have to follow any rules? The only thing we’re talking about here is fun. Why the length of the fork tubes? Why a front wheel without brakes? Just because we wanted it like this.”
The engine was rebuilt to original specifications, but using a TR7 single-carburetor head rather than the fussier stock twin-carb item. The frame is painted in gloss black and the bodywork in a black flake, with matching exhaust system and heat guards.
