vintage road racing

We all know about the Triton — but this ghostly grey machine has a hot-rodded Yamaha XS650 engine squeezed into a Norton frame. And it works — with racer Brad Monk on board, it’s taken out Canada’s vintage road racing Heavyweight class.
Hats off to builder Toivo Madrus. Just stick on some lights and a number plate, and we’d steal it for our own garage.
