MCN tracked down a pro­to­type Tri­umph two-stroke that had been binned by the British firm in 1958. Tri­umph’s boss at the time Ed­ward Turner or­dered the 200cc two-stroke ma­chine to be scrapped, but Sammy Miller (above) found one and re­built it. He then put the mo­tor in a 1957 Cub and got it run­ning. Miller, who still runs his ex­cel­lent mu­seum in Hamp­shire, be­lieves the bike could have been a ri­val to the Ja­panese two-strokes that went on to dom­i­nate the mo­tor­cy­cle mar­ket.
