Triumph Street Cup and Rega Turntables

For the Triumph Motorcycles fan who has everything comes these two-only special Rega turntables and 500 special vinyl record pressings.

Both will be unveiled on Tuesday (August 29, 2017) at a special event at The Bike Shed in London.

And the only way to get to the event and win one of the turntables and albums is via Triumph’s Twitter and Facebook pages.

Rega is a longtime British turntable company specialising in minimalist, high-end quality equipment.

The turntable’s platter is styled like a wheel and brake disc while the colouring reflects the new Street Cup model with its signature racing yellow paint.

There is also a line drawing of the Street Cup on the turntable.

It is fitted with a hand-assembled, precision-built RB110 tone arm, a low-vibration, low-noise 24v motor assembly driving a precision bearing and 10mm float glass platter fitted with a custom-printed plinth and mat.

The “Racing the Record” album features tracks from 10 up-and-coming British bands who will play at the Bike Shed event.Triumph Street Cup and Rega Turntables

The bands were selected by fans on Triumph’s Facebook page.

Triumph Motorcycles GB general manager Paul Lilly says rock and roll was a major part of the café racer culture back in the 1950s and 1960s.

“In fact, the music that played on the jukeboxes of the cafes these enthusiasts frequented even forms part of the scene’s folklore,” e says.

Riders used to select a record on a cafe jukebox and then race to a predetermined point and back before the song had ended.

Paul says the Street Cup is a “modern-day street racer inspired by the café racers of old”.

“It is fitting that we are now taking the Street Family back to its roots by creating our own record and turntable,” he says.
