WHAT WE THINK

PETER WILLIAMS • In December 2020, we lost one of motorcycling’s most pioneering engineers and a damn fine racer; Peter Williams. Alan Cathcart looks at Peter’s career through the eyes of a friend.

JOHN PLAYER NORTON MONOCOQUE Thinking outside the box • In our admiration of the late Peter Williams, we look at the bike he’s remembered mostly for; the bike that did the most, with the least, 50 years ago.

Triumph Trident The world waited • Few of us fail to admire the triple bark of a triple-cylinder Trident these days. But back in ’69, it was too old, too expensive and that pesky Honda CB750 was just too good…

TRIUMPH T150 TRIDENT (1969)

Peter Williams 1939 – 2020

Triumph Trident 1991-1998 • Triumph’s second Trident spearheaded the new incarnation of the famous British marque. Is it any good now? I’ll skip to the answer – yes. It could be the deal of the decade.

New RETRO Triumph Trident • The Trident is back again – but in a quite different form.

TECH SPEC

HONDA CB900F 1979-83 Restoration & Buying Guide • Before Rob Davies sadly passed away, he was following this restoration. Often overlooked, Rob saw the qualities of Honda’s CB900F

SPECIFICATION: CB 900 SPEC

FLORIDA FANCY • Tony Adams decided his next project would be to turn a less-than-pretty, unloved Moto Guzzi Florida into a lightweight, prettier bike that would still be a lot of fun

Pulling out dents • We’re lifting dents from tanks using a left field technique

PREPPING TANKS fOR PAINT

Project Norton • Small steps are starting to make progress on the ES2

Hints & tips FROM HUTCH'S WORK SHOP • This month, Hutch shows us that a simple job needs some considerable thought, and comes across a leaky flange
