Good to see a few people owning there Triumphs for so long,so had chat with my Dad who seems to THINK he bought his MK1 mid 70s maybe 75,so that would be 44 years ownership,he needs to find the buff logbook which he has in a safe place,which he can,t find....to confirm a date of purchase.

My Dad bought his 2000 second hand in 1977 /1978 (its a 1975 mk11 FL) and still has it to this day, Mine was bought brand new in 1976 by my late grandfather. I inherited it when I was 21 in 2004 and still have it now.

I am up there, bought mine in 1980 and driven almost every day - high mileage too when I was working. Been from top to bottom of the UK and only ever had to get it recovered once - broke a ring just outside Glasgow. Lost track of the mileage a long time ago, but if not the highest it must be close.
