That was a really sad day i think classic motorcycle and classic motorcycle mechanics covered the story. They say they saved a lot of machines, but i am not aware of what has been rescued. have you read the pictorial history of Triumph motorcycles by Ivor Davies?its a really good book,came out in 1985 and again in 1996,its worth getting a copy it highlights how important the mark was. I was at brands hatch one year at the festival of speed, and a guy ran a tiger cub sprint bike on the straight just below the grandstand,KNOW WHERE I MEAN? if i remember rightly the terminal speed was 100mph not bad for a little un’ anyway them was the days.
