08/12/2013 – Girdered…..

So we had a trip down south this weekend, not the most pleasant of journeys we have been on but well worth the appalling slow weekend traffic down the A21.

Good news is that we finally dropped of the OEM Typhoon down at Jake Robbins Vintage Engineering based in Hastings. We only spent a short time in his workshop but suffice to say we were impressed not just by the setup but by the man himself who proved a fountain of knowledge when it comes to not only girder forks but general metal work.

The set of girders being specially made for the Typhoon are based on a small production run of handmade pre war triumph girders. You have to take my word on it but the craftsmanship is astounding and we cannot wait to see the custom set on the Typhoon!

Jake and his son are another example of fine British craftsmanship hidden away on this fair isle.
