Triumph Gasket Set, ca.1978
Andover Norton's Triumph Tradition
Andover Norton was founded in 1977 to – which is obvious – look after the spares needs of Norton owners.

What has since been forgotten is that Andover Norton also sold the complete parts inventory of NVT. Which meant also Triumph and BSA parts.
In a recently acquired spares stash we found a few of these original Andover Norton/Triumph gasket sets.
1978 Andover Norton Prospectus
Advertizing Triumph Parts
The 1978 Andover Norton promotion leaflet shows Triumph Trident and Norton parts on its cover.
Triumph parts were sold off and not re-made as the rights to manufacture and distribution were acquired by the Meriden Triumph Workers Cooperative.
When that cooperative went bankrupt in 1983/84 and its assets sold off the owner of Andover Norton at the time, Mike Jackson, bought all parts remaining in the Meriden factory. They were stored in a WW2 hangar near the Shenstone Norton factory.

I remember going there with the Norton spares manager of the era, Richard Negus, and virtually climbing towers of pallet cages containing half-finished castings and finished parts.

The reason why we went there was that I had been dealing in Triumph parts since 1977. I bought some of these ex-Meriden parts off Norton Motors Ltd who had agreed to distribute them for Andover Norton.

Our experience with Triumph parts hence goes back four decades!
"Rockerbox" in Hamburg-Norderstedt, ca.1982, selling Triumph and Norton spares
The other birthplace of Andover Norton's current Triumph operation besides Andover.
The first shop of Andover Norton's current owners sold Triumph and Norton parts from Day1.
It was called "Rockerbox" and the business went through another incarnation until it was relocated in a joint venture company with Norton Motors Ltd/England.
That started operations on 1st January, 1989 as "Norton Motors (Deutschland) GmbH" again looking after Triumph as well as Norton parts.
Norton Motors GmbH is thus the "Triumph" side of the Andover Norton business.

Besides selling stock that remains from Andover Norton's purchase of the Meriden stock we buy and distribute Triumph replacement parts from reliable sources in the best quality available.
