750cc Triumph Metisse

We’re pretty sure that if it’s straight-line grunt and power you are looking for, then a 750cc Triumph Metisse has got to be the way to go?

2015 runner-up in the Pre-65 British Classic Scrambles Championship and two-time Pre-68 Championship winner, Aaron Graves, arrived at a wet Marks Tey meeting on Easter Sunday and rolled out this lovely looking 750cc Triumph Metisse.

He’ll be using this in the British Championship at the longer, more power-hungry circuits, then “reverting” to his championship winning 500cc BSA (which he’s currently rebuilding) for the tight-and-twisties.

The bike was purchased the tail-end of last season, and has had a complete rebuild from the ground-up.

He kindly strapped on our GoPro to give us a taste of what it’s like aboard the machine. Enjoy.

The bike is essentially a 1967 BSA B44 Victor that has been bored and stroked from it original 441cc to 500cc. The frame is a Terry Weedy (Avery Products) item, whilst the engine has been prep’d by fellow scrambles competitor Bob Rolf and also Hosplant based in Colchester, Essex. Rear shocks are from Reiger Suspension.

We wish Nick all the best of … Read More »
