There are very few books about the Hinckley-built Triumphs, and none will tell you what to look for when buying one secondhand. That's what this book is about - it is a straightforward, practical guide to buying a used modern Triumph. It doesn't list all the correct colour combinations for each year, or analyse the bike's design philosophy, or consider its background as part of a reborn industry, but it will help you avoid buying a dud. Point by point, it takes the reader through everything that needs looking at when buying a Hinckley Triumph, plus spares prices, which is the best model to buy for your needs, and a look at auctions, restorations and paperwork.
