Welcome to my website dedicated to the Triumph engined 'Bitsa' known as the Tribsa.
When talking about Triumph engined specials most people tend to think of the mighty Triton. The Tribsa, in comparison, has always seemed like its poorer cousin lacking that certain 'caché'.
However, to me the combination of stunning Triumph engine in a curvy pre-unit BSA frame and tasteful cycle parts has always looked right. Standard trim BSA's have always had that 'workman' like badge - sure and steady, a bit black and white, more suited to pulling sidecars than burning rubber.
Although a Tribsa could be made to look like a Triton, I wanted to create something a bit different. A street bike/cruiser that looked as though it could have come from the factory. The bike that perhaps BSA/Triumph should have made. The opportunity to do this came along in 1984 and has led to a long on-off-then-on again affair with a very special bike.
