    the Triking

    thetrikingThe Triking is a two-seater, open cockpit, sporting car in the tradition of a 1920s Aero-type cyclecar and hand built to the highest standards

    Available fully built ready to drive,or in component (kit) form for self build. Each car is tailored to the customers individual specification and complies with relevant legal requirements (MSVA etc.) There is a comprehensive choice of options and specification available. Please contact us for further information.

    Based on a tough, epoxy-powder-coated, steel space-frame chassis with hand-molded resin coachwork, the Triking uses a blend of purpose made and proprietary parts to give the best performance and appearance. The air-cooled engine is the proven Italian thoroughbred, Giulio Carcano designed, 90-degree, vee-twin from the Moto Guzzi motorcycle. Rear-wheel drive is used to provide the best combination of driver appeal and balance.

    Timeless

    triking Visually the Triking has changed little since the 1970s but has undergone extensive, fine detailed
    improvements utilizing the latest technology in electrical systems, braking and suspension. Following
    these developments and the use of precision components Triking Sports Cars are straightforward to
    construct and easy to maintain.
    All Triking technical improvements and upgrades can be readily retro fitted to existing cars.
    All refinements are extensively researched, developed and tested. Longevity is a prime
    consideration, our cars are built to last, and of course to provide many years of enjoyment for their
    owners.
    Build quality is of the utmost importance. All components undergo rigorous quality control and
    attention to detail is painstaking. All Triking components are engineered using the finest quality
    materials and hand built using traditional skills and techniques culminating in an original, bespoke
    sporting car.
    The Triking is a proven, timeless design and is generally acknowledged to be one of the finest
    examples of its type in the world. Technical refinement has been continuous, thorough and
    progressive.
    Bespoke by nature Triking factory built cars are constructed to suit individual requirements of their
    owners. Self-build (component) Trikings are similarly versatile allowing the builder to tailor many
    attributes of the finished article with their own ideas. Many of the components are still made using
    traditional methods but are now more fully “productionised” to ensure consistent parts availability
    for all models.
    Also modern materials and processes are adopted where appropriate. More recent developments
    include… larger cockpit area, spaceframe chassis front to facilitate engine access refine transmission,
    enhanced handling and road holding. Extensive use of stainless steel and aluminium components, in
    addition to variations to accommodate larger capacity Moto Guzzi engines. Evolution of Triking
    models is a continuous design process with the latest addition the Triking Type 4 available now.
    The build process has also recently been further refined to improve its suitability for self-build
    construction. The Triking is still made in Norfolk, England and exported worldwide.

    Moto Guzzi

    theengineThe Moto Guzzi engine was a natural choice for the Triking. In addition to being technically
    compatible it shares the Triking design philosophy of strength, simplicity and unique character It all
    started with three friends (Guzzi,Ravelli and Parodi) who were all in the Italian Air Corps during the
    First World War.they came from vastly different backgrounds, Guzzi was an engineer, Ravelli a
    famous motorcycle racer and Parodi who came from a wealthy family Their dream was to build
    motorcycles after the war. Ironically Ravelli was killed in a plane crash just days after peace was
    declared ,Guzzi and Parodi then formed Moto Guzzi with financial backing from Parodis` family and
    in honour of their friend used their Air Corps squadron symbol as the insignia for their new
    company. This is the now famous flying eagle Moto Guzzi badge. Their first bike was a 500cc single
    manufactured in 1922. it sold well in various configurations and became the company`s base model
    over the next 40 years, Initially badged as Guzzi Parodi the name on the bikes was changed to Moto
    Guzzi to ensure separation from the financiers other business interests.

    The Guzzi bikes quickly started to perform well in racing. As was their original intention Guzzi used
    motorsport as an advertising platform to promote their new company. By the 1950s Guzzi were at
    the forefront of Grand Prix racing. Guzzi were quite forward thinking in engineering design terms
    and became the first manufacturer in Europe to build a wind tunnel for testing aerodynamics
    notably using the propeller from an aeroplane to provide the wind. Their chief design engineer
    Guilio Carcano designed the legendary V8 race engine which was reputedly the most complex engine
    of its day. In the late 1960s Guzzi developed the 90 degree shaft drive V twin engine initially a 700cc
    – again a Carcano design. this has now become the widely recognised icon that the company is
    known for today. This engine has evolved in detail and increased in capacity (now 1400cc in 2013) In
    1976 Guzzi released the 850 LeMans which has now become one of the most iconic sought after
    Guzzi bikes produced. The big V twin engine has a very distinctive character while being simple to
    maintain and very robust. All Trikings are fitted with Moto Guzzi engines usually the low
    compression touring spec as its tractable power delivery is ideal for a cyclecar. During the 1980s Ten
    factory built Trikings were fitted with Le Mans engines
