Deeprose Magnum Triumph

I'm looking for photos of the Deeprose Magnum Triumph race bike from 1971, it had a magnesium frame "hence the name" and the unit 650 or 750 motor was attached by the head and rear mountings, there was no front downtube,the bike was track tested in Motorcyclist Illustrated May 71 issue,it was ridden by Peter Cockram,Deeprose Brothers was a bike dealers in London, I know this is a long shot but worth a try

Try Morton Media http://www.mortonsmediagroup.com/ They have a massive archive of old motorcycle photos going back to 1900. They charge but are not too expensive.

thanks for the reply, I wrote to the editor of Classic Bike Guide a while back asking to put my request in the letters page and also asked about the Mortons library, I'll contact the archives if I don't get my letter published.
I notice your main bike is a 82 TR65 same as me, did you know a fella named Tim Ainslie has written a book on the TR65 that he's trying to get published, he's featured my bike as I've switched the gear change from the left to the right side
