Sometime before, Soft Tsingos had completed her amazing project “Cafe Racer Honda CB550” with the help of her father. This time round the tables has turned and it’s Sofi’s father’s turn to step into the spotlight. He built a true café race named “Triton 650 Pre Unit Cafe Racer”.
Details of cafe racer Triton 650 Pre Unit:
Classic Norton Featherbed frame 1966
Front wheel Norton, rear wheel Triumph (redone hub for installation front brake mounting John Tickle Racing)
Original fuel tank handmade
650-cc engine Triumph Pre Unit 1961: redesigned balanced
Transmission Triumph T140 1960
Lucas Competition magneto
Pair of Amal carburettors
Unfortunately, this story is not the happy ending. Sophie’s father, owner of the cafe racer Triton 650 Pre Unit, has cancer. Thus, Sophie decided to build another cafe racer to sell it to a charity auction, and the money to fund research to give cancer treatments.
