The sports version of Edward Turner's trend-setting Speed Twin, the Tiger 100 was launched in 1938, reappearing in 1946 with telescopic forks in place of the original girders, and separate dynamo and magneto instead of the pre-war version's mag-dyno. An alloy cylinder head and barrel were adopted for 1951, these and other engine improvements boosting power to 32bhp, while a swinging-arm frame and 8"-diameter front brake (first seen on the 650cc Tiger 110) were fitted from 1954 onwards. A splayed-port cylinder head with twin carburettors became available from the start of the 1957 model year, and this would represent the ultimate development of the Tiger 100, which in mid-1959 was replaced by the new, unitary construction Tiger 100A.

The supplied Triumph Motorcyle Club correspondence shows this wonderful Tiger 100 to have been manufactured on 30th May 1956 and dispatched to Blacknell Motors Ltd in Derby on 5th June 1956. The history file shows many receipts for parts and chrome work carried out during the restoration. Presenting beautifully in light metallic blue, the vendor reports the bike to run and ride very well being a pleasure to ride. Supplied with a V5C registration document and history file, this excellent Tiger 100 is ready to go. Consigned by Will Penrose.
