I nearly messed myself when I first saw this beautiful example of how to cleanly mate something new with something old. What you see here is the combination of a modern Hinckley-built 865cc engine in a 1954 Norton frame.
Originally powered by an older and troublesome 650cc Triumph motor, 31 year old Scandinavian mechanic Lars Lykkegaard decided to go for something new and got himself a 2010 Thruxton.
He immediately harvested power plant from the new bike and got going on building this stunning Triton. The bike is now for sale via The Wrenchmonkee's blog.
A price is not listed, but with it's fast and furious notoriety, you can bet it won't come cheap.
