This design was inspired by “Reg”, late father of Andy Valentine, Dealer Principal. The Triumph café racer was always his weapon of choice. Since his retirement, Reg had helped Andy fulfil his dream to create and grow Premier Bikes and later Triumph Oxford.
Very much loved by the whole team, Reg has a café named after him in his memory, and now a beautiful Triumph custom bike with matching helmet. This stunning custom is based on the original Tiger 100 production racer from the 1950’s. A racing style 2 into 1 exhaust system was added along with handmade clip on handlebars, a café racer seat and TT 100 Dunlop race tyres.
The team utilised the full range of Triumph accessories to further enhance its café racer credentials. The team at Triumph Oxford was made up of Andy Valentine, Dealer Principal, Scott Carson, Head Triumph Technician and Keith Salt.
