I owned one when I was in my early 20s. I had no idea what I had..Sure it needed some work but the engine was sound...Swapped it for a sorted Honda CB 550/4

What a blinkin' plonker !

That's the "Made in Metal" Triton - the guys who do the modern cafe racer air-cooled Dukes :mouthwate

I have no idea what a blinkin' plonker is, but I'm pretty sure Joe is one.....

As I said, it's made by "Made in Metal", it's about as old as the chicken I had for tea last night (not quite 12mths old), and owe's nothing to Norman Hyde or Tickle. It's a T150 in a wideline frame, and pretty much everything else is made by MiM. See below. On their FB page you'll need to go back to around May last year .....

Thanks for the links Malcolm...I've gotta say it really is one of the nicest and most desirable bikes I've ever seen...If I ever won the lottery!!!!!

Here from their facebook page is a link to it starting up..,'First kick' and sounds gorgeous!:mouthwate.
It's still in it's unpainted form in the workshop and nearing completion.
But just look and listen to that thing!!...... https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=336780773117569&set=vb.162556400540008&type=2&theater

Yes, it would be lovely to be in that lucky owners position of walking into the workshop and saying "I would like ....... please build me ......… Cost? Your budget is whatever it takes to do it right ...." :mouthwate
