What is it?
This motorcycle left the Triumph factory in 2015 as a standard Diablo/Silver finish Scrambler. The current owner purchased the bike in 2017, in 2020 (during the infamous lockdown) he set about creating his homage to Steve Mc Queen’s character Virgil Hilts motorcycle which we all recall jumping over a fence in the iconic 1963 WWII movie The Great Escape.
What’s it got?
Well it hasn’t got a lot of miles that’s for sure having covered a mere 3000 miles in total! The bike benefits from modern components, reliability and a whole heap of cool.
This model is powered by the air-cooled, DOHC, 865cc parallel-twin engine powering a slick 5-speed gearbox. What appears to be period carburettors are actually fuel-injection throttle bodies.
How does it drive?
Having been serviced by the main dealer prior from new followed by oil and filter change by the owner every 12 months it performs faultlessly. The Arrow 2 into 1 exhaust sounds incredible but not too lairy as to draw the wrong type of attention.
The Scrambler makes for a great all-round everyday bike, the gearing makes cruising easy as you zip down to supermarket– just don’t go try to jump the checkout queues!
Why this one?
The superb modifications include single seat conversion, bar end circular mirrors, bullet indicators, tail tidy with a rack, tinted headlight with a powder coated bezel sitting behind a grill make for an extremely cool motorcycle. Did we mention the noise….??
In the highly unlikely event you would want to revert to standard specification, simply remove the wrap to find the pristine red and silver factory paint hiding beneath. The original rear mudguard, seat, indicators and mirrors will be included in the sale
