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, in 1953 the Tiger 100C was introduced however only 560 were made and finally it was completely redesigned in the new 'unit' style as the T100A in 1960.

This 1960 Triumph T100A is presented in a striking Red and white combination and has been upgraded to include Bower electronic ignition, offered with old MoT Test certificates, a V5 Registration document and in good order this bike will be a pleasure  to ride home.
