Triumph Trident F750

Triumph rider Tony Jefferies built this machine, using many special factory parts around a Rob North frame. It was later raced in the 1978 Formula 1 event in the Isle of Man by Scotsman Alex George who, competing against 1,000cc 4-cylinder machines, finished in 5th place. His fastest lap was 107mph, which still stands as a record around the TT circuit by a pushrod motor.
