If it is anything like his book Triumph and Bsa Triples it will be a compelling read.

It can be purchased  from Norman Hydes

“Proposed trip to Classic TT

 

Looking to see if any interest in travelling to Isle of Man for Classic TT visit as a group

Visit would include Accommodation, Ferry costs etc

So anyone interested contact me at BigbossMonty1@ntlworld.com

Express what you would like and I will see if I can organize a Trip if interested.

A schedule of trips out  would be available for the group but solely up to each member of the party

If they want to follow it.”

 

Cheers

John

well done Richard on a terrific 2nd place

Come on peoplle where are all these lovingly crafted triples. the Stafford show is looming large and we still need more of your triples so we can enter the show.

 

details below

Dave Bloor our Chairman is running the TR3OC Stand at the October (19th & 20th)  Stafford  classic show. we require a minimum of 6 bikes to be able to enter the show.

So if you have a flat tracker, low rider, chopped  or unusual triple that you would like to see on display  look no further

please reply to dave via email  chairman@tr3oc.co.uk

More bad news i am afraid.

please see message from Richard Darby below

 

It is with great sadness that I am informing you of the sad parting of John Anderson, of Performance Motorcycles. For many years John kept us on the road with his supply of parts, both new and used, some very rare. So knowledgeable about the triples, he would talk for hours telling you what part fitted which model, and how to overcome all sorts of problems. He was well known in the auto-jumble scene and up until recent years, was a focal point at the Stafford shows. He will be sadly missed.
 
regards, Richard

For anyone who never managed to get one, there are a few left.

Please contact Kim Spencer if you would like one

Each year the committee members opt to put
themselves up for either re-election at the AGM or retire from their position.
We already know that some positions will become vacant and would like to invite
applications from club members. If you think you could contribute ideas and time
to the development and running of the club then come forward now.  Being a
committee member does not necessarily mean a heavy workload but it does give the
opportunity to help steer the club through an exciting and challenging period so
why not get involved and join the team.  Just write a few lines introducing
yourself and include details of any particular skills or experience you have
that you feel will help and send it to treasurer@tr3oc.co.uk.

It is with great sadness we have to announce the death of John South a long time supporter of our club who only last weekend threw £75 in to the pot to guess how many mods were on his Hurricane.

John was the owner of the Hughes Trident that was the feature of B21

 

here is a link to his rebuild blog of the bike for those who have not seen it.

RIP  John
