Tribsa 750cc

I saw this bike at the manx TT 2007, it really is an amazing looking bike and sounds sweet as a nut!! If this guy had pound for every picture that was taken during the manx week he'd be a very happy man. Had a chat with Steve, what a great guy and he knows his stuff, and truely deserves a place in the top 12.

This bike was actually featured in Classic Bike Guide, not Classic Bike. It also belongs to Steve Clark, not the name in the paper. It has been owned by Steve for almost 40 years and as such has been developed accordingly. It bristles with period parts which all work. It goes like hell, sounds awesome, handles like a dream and smells wonderful on 'R'. I am privileged to be the only person other than Steve to have ridden this bike. It truly is a magnificent machine.
