Edward Turner's pre-war Triumph 500cc 5T Speed Twin had, way back in 1937, set the pace for a new era of parallel twin motorcycling, a pace that was about to be reset with the imminent launch of the 1949, 34bhp, 650cc 6T Thunderbird. So it was that, somewhat hastily, in October 1949 BSA announced the 650cc A10 which would be on sale for the 1950 season. Originally registered on 1st April 1960, this delightfully handsome Triumph has been restored and presents in very good order, the paintwork is virtually unmarked as is the chromework. Benefitting from being a matching numbers motorcycle and supplied with a V5C registration document, this 350cc Tiger is extremely well estimated given the popularity of these iconic British motorcycles.
