Zephyr Spotting

Postby Shedman » 18 May 2018, 07:59

In the nearly three years that I have owned my Zephyr 750 I have never seen another Zephyr on the road........until yesterday, there was a black 550 parked outside the main Post Office in town. Before that, the last time I saw a Zephyr would be at least 10 years ago but it could well have been the same bike as that was also a black 550 in a Sainsbury's car park. I have been to Matlock Bath on a Sunday afternoon a few times recently and I would have thought that I'd have seen at least one there.
Has anyone else seen another one out and about? or do I live in a Zephyr desert?

Totally agree with you Shedman, the only times I see them is at a meet, a friend at work had one but he got rid of that around 10yrs ago... I can honestly say that I have never seen one when out on the road...Sad

At the time of typing this there are 14 Zephyr's for sale on ebay UK, so there are some left out there.

David, surely I can't have been the only person in the UK to tax a C4 last year :o I was in the local carpet shop a couple of weeks ago and I spotted a picture of a "new" Triumph on the wall in the office. I asked the salesman who's bike it was and it was his, he asked me if I had a bike and I said a Zephyr 750, he said "Oh, an import then", I said "No, its a UK bike" he went on to tell me that surely I was mistaken as they were mostly sold overseas and that he had never heard of a UK Zephyr. :lol: When I get the chance I'll show him one!
