Triton is a cult variety of custom bikes. The combination of a Norton featherbed frame and Triumph twin motor has become the basis of the café racer movement. In the 60s speed fans combined the best chassis with the best engines.

Nowadays, you can find a lot of motorcycles, that will top most Tritons. The owner of this beautiful motorcycle, presented in the photo, has a lot of fast and cool motorcycles in his garage (Honda RC30, RC45, Ducati Panigale R and Desmosedici RR, Triumph T120). Despite this, he reached out to Tom Simpson and Alex Chesson of Foundry Motorcycle, based near the small cathedral city of Chichester, West Sussex.
