Lot 108 - 1961 Triumph T20 Tiger Cub
|Odometer reading||29,200 miles|
|Result||Sold - £6,720|
Introduced in March 1954, the Triumph T20 Tiger Cub was a snip at £127, a little over half the price of its big brother, the 650cc Triumph 6T Thunderbird. This attractive four stroke 199cc bike, with its instantly recognisable exhaust note, was Triumph’s answer to the popular but smokey, two stroke BSA Bantam. Built at Triumph’s factory at Meriden and with a top speed approaching 70mph, the Cub won many admirers selling over 110,000 units in the 15 years of its production.
