The Forgotten Triumph Twin

This 500 Side Valve TRW has just finished on the bay,although this one is set up for Trials, any of  these Twins seem to be getting scarce nowadays.

Never sold new to the public, just shy of 16,000 were sold to the armed services around the world between 1950 and 1964, before giving way to the B40 from BSA.

Seem to remember BIKE magazine having one as a project in the very early days, they were going to flat track it, can't remember seeing it finished though.

 This is a very early Army issue, 1948 pre nacelle example recently repatriated from the Middle- East
