I saw this at last night's Club Triumph Pendle & Pennine area meeting.

I got talking to the owner and he's from Cumbria so he knows Mike Barker and Bill Shankland. It is original and looks to be unrestored. The owner said it has never been welded. I was drooling over it and I had to get a couple of photos. The owner is a member of both CT & the TDC. There's a CT driving event taking place this weekend so there were quite a few Triumphs there last night.

Edit: According to the entry list for CT event. The owners of the Sprint are Ray & Gill Crellin. Does anybody (apart from Mike & Bill) know them? It was great to meet them. I couldn't resist a reference to a certain female former TG presenter (the clue's in the plate!).
