Prompted by my love of the 50's - 60's Sunbeam Rapiers I jotted down the reg number of one featured in an episode of: 'The Sweeney' just to see (via the DVLC website) if it was still out there somewhere..
But, to stay topical, it appears the Triumph with the above registration still is. Does current owner know he owns a TV star? I think it may be T140, but TBH my Trumpet knowledge is slim, spent many a mile on the back of a TR6 and T140V but I'm no marque expert..

There was a Commando used in one episode & a T160 used in another. Can't remember which series or episode though. Maybe the director was a Brit bike fan. I did read that someone was restoring the Ford Consul used by Regan & Carter.

Mind you, given the transmission dates ('75-'76), Brit iron was still contemporary. But those roads... so quiet!!
