Triumph Terror, préparation racing de 1953

Triumph Terror, préparation racing de 1953

Repérée ces derniers jours sur leboncoin.fr (ici) puisqu’elle est en vente pour 3200 euros, voici l’histoire originale de cette Triumph Terror unique et hors du commun.

Certifiée par le ow ners club Triumph, l’histoire de la «Terror » débute en 1951. A sa sortie d’usine elle n’est encore qu’une Triumph Terrier à moteur monocylindre culbuté de 150cc. Son propriétaire et pilote de l’époque l’acquiert dans l’idée de la transformer pour courir avec en 1953 dans la catégorie 250cc.

La Terrier se fait réalésée en 233cc recevant un carburateur ss I Dell’Orto. Une boîte courte, des pneus Dunlop triangulaire type race et les commandes «home-made» complètent la préparation.

L’année 1953 verra les heures de gloire de cette moto mythique. Non modifiée depuis sa dernière course, dans sa configuration d’origine, la « Terror » a depuis appartenue à un grand collectionneur Anglais de Triumph de course et à été conservée jusqu’à maintenant par Ian Roberts (voir photo issue du magazine « The Classic Motorcycle » novembre 2008).

  3. Jag så dig på långt håll i lördags men lyckades inte ta mig åt rätt håll. Tyvärr fanns inte riktigt orken för att sitta ned vid workshopborden men ni är beundransvärda ni som är där en massa timmar.Boel

  4. Also, the Multi-video uploader is way too long! I uploaded 3 videos 3 hours ago! and now it's 4 hours and they have yet to show up on my videos page :| This needs to be fixed ASAP.

  5. I am sitting in front of the Regia pattern in a complete daze (despite having knitted socks before!). Thank you for your tutorial, I am about to try the short row heel. As others have noted, the Regia original is almost unfathomable.

  6. I think you prefer “King Brian” outfit but we love the chicken hat!! You don’t look happy with chicken hat, though, hahaha….I hope no one will come in a spece creature costume today Happy Halloween!!

  7. i’ve been recently diagnosed with barrett’s esophagus. my doctor’s advice is to wait a year to be reexamined for cancer cells. i’d prefer to be proactive. my research turned up your website & would like to learn more.

  8. he was at the hospice for three days and nights before Terri passed away. He told what happened when they were told death was eminant. He said they were all hanging out in Michals room at the hospice. By all he was talking about himself, The lady attorney, Michael and his brother. He said they went into the room. I wonder why it is dignified to die with two attorneys in the room and no parents or siblings. Why was he at the hospital for three days and nights? That seems way beyond the duties of an attorney.
