Triumph 2.3

I saw this bike at the Thoresby show today. I wonder if the 2.3 inline 3 would fit in a Vitesse/Herald.

Engine is a Liquid-cooled, DOHC, in-line 3-cylinder with a Capacity of 2,294cc

According the manufacturer website it has Maximum Power of 106bhp @ 5,400 rpm and Maximum Torque of 154ft.lbf @ 2,025 rpm

Not a lot of progress in 40 years then. So it turns out not have any more power than the Vitesse. Why bother.

Lucas Parts 1969

Lucas Girling Equipment and Service Parts - Standard Triumph 1969

Catching up with the Canley Classics blog I saw mention of the 4 wheel "Pony" gearboxes for sale.

Included in this parts booklet is a section listing parts for the "Pony". I bet it puzzled people back then and it even odder now.
