Was out at the weekend at the Stafford classic bike show in the UK and spotted this rather nice bike but looking i bit harder i noted this had a cylinder popped on the left-hand side,then the owner fired it up and all i can say is "i want one" the sound was just like a 3 cylinder MV Agusta from the 1960s
The best part for me was the bike started life out as a Honda Cb175 and all sorted in a shed !

I saw that 3 cylinder bike at the Shelsley Walsh hill climb back in 2016. I didn't get to hear it running back then, but I did take a load of photos. Allen Millyard was at the same meeting with some of his bikes as well.

Thanks for uploading the photos as a lot better than my effort with my phones camera.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I first saw that bike, I had no idea such a thing existed. I'd gone over to look at Allen Millyards SS100 V twin.


There was also this CB175 race / parade bike at the same meeting.

Very nice pictures, Richard. And I just noticed he converted it to right side shift/left side brake. Nice job! Seems strange calling it a triple... not something Honda was known for :D

We had a V3 2 stroke over here in the UK back in the day.

I remember seeing one crossing the bridge in Worcester, I think it was a 400, but it didn't really register with me at the time, I lusted after ( but never had ) the 4 cylinder 4 stroke Hondas.
