1939 Triumph 498cc Tiger 100
Registration no. MJO 901
Frame no. TF1614
Engine no. 9-T100 15746

This pre-war Tiger 100 had been completely dismantled prior to its purchase by the immediately preceding owner and was fully restored by him during 2011/2012. Works carried out include rebuilds of the engine and gearbox; blast-cleaning and power coating the frame and cycle parts; re-chroming the original wheel rims; rebuilding the wheels with stainless spokes; reconditioning the magdyno and carburettor; and installing a new wiring loom. Departures from factory specification include the replica fuel tank; contemporary Speed Twin oil tank; pattern mudguard; gel battery and an electronic voltage regulator (inside the original case).

The current vendor purchased the Triumph at Bonhams' Stafford Sale in April 2013 (Lot 286) and advises us that the only work carried out since then has been to fit a correct exhaust system. Kept in a heated and dehumidified environment since completion, this motorcycle will need final adjustments and running in before serious use. (It should be noted that there is no oil in either the engine or gearbox and that the machine has not been started). Described as in generally excellent condition, this beautiful pre-war Tiger 100 is offered with a V5C registration document.
