1953 Triumph T100 Tiger 'Sprung Hub' For SaleFollowing the WW2 Bombing of Coventry and the destruction of the Triumph Factory in 1940 motorcycle production was slow to start at the new Meriden factory after the war. As such there were little changes in the specification of most of the models, the only innovation was the introduction of telescopic forks across the range, the T100 was further developed and the engine improved resulting in close finned alloy cylinder barrels and factory race kits for privateers. The most significant change was the introduction of the swing arm frame in 1954 to replace the now aging sprung hub hard tail frame that had been in service since 1939. From the last year of production this fine matching number Tiger has been the subject of a comprehensive restoration and remains in truly excellent condition throughout. A home market UK supplied bike it was first registered 28th Jan 1953. We have an original green buff log book dated back to ’59 when the bike was registered in Burton on Trent. It is also supplied with the current UK V5C and an MoT until Jan. 2013. In great running order this is a really fine and collectable example.
