Old TopGear - Triking

Post by Tribus » Fri Jun 05, 2020 3:40 pm


TopGear 1983 - Series 10 Episode 4

You may have already seen this, but I have only just found this old 1983 episode of TopGear featuring a splendid Triking, back in the days when TopGear was a sober, dry and informative programe. A blast from the past!

Dr Richard Norris do you still have your Triking?

All the best,

I can't believe I haven't seen this before either ! It's a Series 1 in BRG much like my own, chassis number is probably in the 20's.
The car doesn't appear on the register under that reg number, it may now have a different number or have gone overseas. It would be great to find out more information.
