Triumph Seeley- The 'Triley' Road Test Video

Recently featured on Frank Sider's great blog Motart, this Seeley framed Triumph 6T creation, built by Frenchman Vincent Michel, is the star of this excellent video road test.

Here's what Frank said on the Triley, "The cylinder engine was increased to 750CM3, the Vilo has been lightened, pistons high compression, reinforced connecting rods, gear box 6 speed Quaiffe, magnesium front brake and fork from Seeley, hub and rear brake Norton Manx".

BSA DBD34 500 Goldstar Clubmans

Spotted on Chris Spaett's site Venture Classics, this 1958 BSA DBD34 Goldstar caught my attention straight away. A genuine Clubman with original numbers, GP Carb and 190 front brake the bike is unsurprisingly now sold. Nudging Norton out of contention in the Clubmans races of the late fifties, these bikes have classic lines, great handling and plenty of power. I'll have to keep an eye out for this one next season!
