Peter Andrews isn’t a guy to do things by halves. For us mortals, just owning an authentic Triton would be more than enough of our prayers answered, but Pete decided to do just that little bit extra. Well, 100% extra to be precise. He’s not only got himself one of the world’s sweetest café racers, but he’s gone an added an extra damn engine to it.

Could this Triton be one of the coolest motorcycles ever made? It’s not just a motorcycle, it truly is a work of art. We originally spotted this sleek black beast on BikeEXIF just before Christmas and haven’t stopped thinking about it. Created by French designers Frank Charriaut and Vincent Prat from Southsiders MC, they had been planning to build a unique bike for years but it wasn’t until they met a Frenchman by the name of Daniel Delfour at the 2008 Legend Of The Motorcycle event in California that they new they had found the perfect builder for the job. This is how they described the project: “As English motorcycle fans, we choose to use a Norton featherbed frame and a Triumph 750 Bonneville engine,” says Vincent. “But we didn’t want to make the thousandth café racer or Triton; we decided to follow our own road. We started designing a mix of Batman’s motorcycle with a T.Rex fastback and Cat Woman’s curves. Inspiration came directly from the culture of comics.” They sure succeeded, it looks like it could have been built by Bruce Wayne for the streets of Gotham City. To read the full story and to see more pics of this amazing Triton check the article on the Southsiders MC Blog. You can also view this Karl Lagerfield short film that features the bike.

Marvel-Us Customs are a small custom shop from Phoenix, Arizona. They specialize in building cutting edge vintage and pre 80’s bikes to show stopping quality. They also have a love for British bikes. Like this beautifully restored Triton. Here’s a list of specs (deep breath)… The bike is a 1956 Triumph T110 pre unit motor with a 750cc morgo kit and dual 930 amal carbs. The frame is the classic 1964 Norton featherbed slimline. The rims are Akront high shoulder rims, it has 19″ dunlop front and back. Haward belt drive and the swing arm was streched 2 1/2″ for a longer base and to fit the 19 x4.0 in the narrow norton swing arm. Got all that? In simple terms it’s one stunning ride that has us rabid like Cujo.

Heres a couple of Tritons that I have found around this worldwide interweb super highway. Would love to take these babies on a real highway. For those that don’t know, t
