Our triton

Thought I might let it be known that me and the old man have a racing triton that gets a good run in the period 3 classics over here in Aus
The tank looks rough as crap because it is but after getting her running again after two years of the track from a total engine destruction on track she is a bit of a weapon now. She is a tiger 100 motor in a featherbed running on methanol/acetone race fuel, belt primary drive and the bit we are most proud of us the delta head we came across during the rebuild not many of those in existence!!
I think I have one picture with my son on it. If there is interest in this tread I'll see about getting more info on her and some pics

Crap I've posted the pic before in another thread I'm told so pics will have to wait a couple weeks till I'm home from work

I sure enjoy them! Nice little stable, and i'm positive that it's fun to have them out and about amongst the like-minded warriors.

I sold one of those heads to a man named Paul,about 2 years ago.It had never been used.Does it have non-standard looking steel exhaust spigots,with a slightly smaller outlet?

So, who "robbed Peter to pay Paul"?

Sorry, couldn't resist.

It's a small world, eh?
