Hinckley Triumph Competition

Bike Competition – to celebrate 25 years of Triumph we inviting riders to bring along their bikes to our Open Day on Saturday 23rd May and enter them into a national competition run by Triumph UK.

Here’s the full line-up of bikes that were displayed on the day.  Kicking off with Richard’s 1991 Trophy 1200 which he bought new at the official launch of this model.  It’s totally original and has covered just 11,000 miles.


Here’s Derek’s Rocket III Tourer with an amazing custom paintjob by 8 Ball. Bought new 1 year ago, this was the last Rocket Tourer off the production line.


Here’s Jon’s mid 1990’s Speed Triple with very striking Fireball Orange paintwork. He’s had the bike since 2001 and used it daily until taking it off the road for a full restoration 5 years ago.


Here’s Mark’s 2001 Daytona 955i in (we think) Strontium Yellow.


Trevor has owned this 2007 Speed triple from new – it was a limited edition that year in matt black.  He’s also had the wheels powder-coated and added various other black anodised parts.

Trevor_Kettle2Andrew describes his Bonneville T100 custom as a ‘Bonnevuxton’ for its cafe racer vibe.  Lots of mods to this bike including Norman Hyde pipes and rearsets, drilled engine cases, Hagon shocks, new instrument panel, seat cowl and tail tidy plus many other upgrades and additions.


Dane’s Speed Triple R was bought from us a year ago.  He’s added a Werkes exhaust, GSV levers, R&G crash protection and various other bits.

This Rocket III Roadster is Nick’s 4th Rocket and they’ve all had some sort of custom paintwork.  The last one was painted in 1966 Lotus colours.  This one has been painted in tribute to LeMans / Steve McQueen.  The Zard exhaust is ceramic-coated.


Chris Martin’s 2012 Bonneville SE comes in Emerald Blue over Crystal White. All standard apart from the grab rail, a Triumph accessory.


Tom’s 1999 special edition Ascot TT is used every day and gives reliable service.


Steve was initially drawn to his Speed Triple SE by the striking blue and white colour combination. He’s added some other goodies including RSL tail unit, Pazzo levers and a few carbon bits.

Pete has owned his 1995 Trident for 4 years.  It’s in its original Diablo Black and Red paint with gold coachlines.  He’s removed the brushed alloy sidepanel finishers to give the bike a cleaner look.


Mark’s 1995 Speed Triple has seen a lot of modifications including LED instruments and lights, Pro Italia fork brace, Ohlins rear shock, reverse cone mega from the US and a complete respray in a KTM orange.

Phil’s 2011 Daytona 675R is used for commuting and track days.  It’s his 4th Daytona and sports an interesting number plate: TR11 MPH.
