Heart­warm­ing tale of a Boyer Tri­umph 750 triple rid­den on the road plus some ill-ad­vised streak­ing

Classic Bike (UK) - - Contents -

I en­joyed the ‘Triple By­pass’ ar­ti­cle about the Boyer Tri­umph 750 triple in the May is­sue of CB, es­pe­cially be­cause I am the owner of one of the 14 bikes made by Colin See­ley. I al­ways won­dered ex­actly how many have sur­vived and I now know that there are still a few left. The bike I own comes from a good friend in Eng­land who raced it in 24-hour en­durance rac­ing and on short cir­cuits. I bought the bike in 1975 with all the ex­tras such as dif­fer­ent exhausts, larger petrol tank, head­lights for the 24-hour races and also a large seat in which you can put a big bat­tery. When I got it over here in Hol­land, I wanted to make it road le­gal so I had to fit it with mud­guards, lights, horn, etc and went to the gov­ern­ment for a li­cence. Af­ter some dif­fi­cul­ties be­cause of the amount of noise it makes, they agreed to give me one, so nowa­days it is on the Dutch roads as a kind of café racer. It’s still a great bike to ride.
