'Britain's lowest-priced “200”, the Triumph T20 Tiger Cub, impresses even a seasoned tester with its outstandingly good all-round performance and value. This four-stroke lightweight is game for a genuine 64-65mph; it will cruise energetically all day in the mid-fifties; and it will return fuel consumption figures little short of remarkable, whatever the throttle openings used.' - Motor Cycling. The Tiger Cub's immediate forbear was the 149cc Terrier, with which Triumph had re-entered the market for lightweight commuter machines in 1952. A simple, compact, unitary construction four-stroke with four-speed gearbox, the Terrier was joined in 1954 by an enlarged version - the 200cc Tiger Cub - that offered 60mph-plus performance and 100mpg. A big success, particularly with younger riders, the Cub underwent continual development for the next 16 years, finally ending up with BSA Bantam cycle parts (as the Bantam Cub) before being dropped in 1970.

Offered here is a first year of production example that was first registered on 14th December 1954. Presenting beautifully, the bike has been cherished throughout its life. The supplied history file shows early service records along with receipts, past tax discs, old logbook as well as a 1st place ribbon from the Ashford Classic Motorcycle Show in 2015. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a lovely history file, all this lovely little Cub needs now is a new home. Consigned by Will Penrose.
