1975 or later?

Just as a curio, the 1975 onwards Triumph models switched from the brake on left and gearchange on right to vice-versa.
Apparently to accommodate American requirements (possible legislation) to standardise to the now widely accepted brake on right, gears on left arrangement.
Doubt you'll ever find that on a trivial pursuit card :)
If it aint broke, it aint fixed proper, yet.........

'77 so LH gearchange. I rode it all over, including to Andorra, and paraded it round Mallory & the F1 circuit at Dijon - Prenois

In the end I just stopped using it, so I moved it on.
