|Odometer reading||43,000 miles|
|Estimate||£4,000 - £6,000|
With the runaway sales success of the Triumph Speed Twin,
Triumph turned to further developing the potential of this new
parallel twin motor. The lighter and more powerful Tiger 100 was
developed as a sports enthusiast's machine and as with previous
models the '100' referred to its claimed maximum speed. The Triumph
works were destroyed by German bombers in 1940 along with much of
the city of Coventry, bringing production of the Tiger 100 to an
end until after the war but when Triumph recovered and began
production again at Meriden the Tiger 100 re-appeared. In 1951 it
gained a new close finned alloy cylinder barrel and factory race
kits for independent racers with a fully race-kitted model.
This 500cc 1960 Triumph 100 is presented in a very complimentary blue and silver combination, Offered with a number of previous MoT Test certificates, bills and a V5 Registration certificate. A very reasonable estimate has been placed on this Tiger so we are sure it will find a new loving home.
