John Hancox - Triton
Triton Triumph/Norton Hybrid Motorcycle Greetings Birthday Card
The best known of the hybrid motorcycles, Tritons were the bikes to have during the 1960s and early 1970s. Many were privately constructed but some London dealers offered complete bikes, notably Dresda. The builders fitted Triumph engines into Norton frames, and the aim was to combine the best elements of each marque and thus gain a bike superior to either. To give the bikes the best look possible, they were normally fitted with single seats and modified exhaust pipes.
