The Speed Twin was introduced by Turner at the 1937 National Motorcycle Show and was a great success. As each year brought in newer and more sporty models, so the Speed Twin evolved into a touring motorcycle. Its girder forks were upgraded to teles in 1946, with an optional sprung rear hub from 1947. A new fuel tank and cosmetic makeover took place in 1950. From 1952 the generator and magneto were replaced with a Lucas alternator and battery/coil ignition system. The Tiger 110 was the first model to experiment with a swinging arm frame in 1954, and the Speed Twin benefited from that advance a year later. Full width aluminium brake hubs arrived in 1957 and then came the big step to unit construction with a one-piece forged crankshaft, which for the 500 twins arrived in 1959.
By now the Speed Twin had left behind all sports pretensions but Triumph had introduced the Bonneville to take the sporting strain. The touring Speed Twin received its "Bathtub" body to protect the rider from the elements although getting at the mechanicals could be a chore. The sleek lines were interrupted in 1960 with visible bolts which proved more practical, if slightly less sightly.
The 5TA Speed Twin was the second of Triumph's new family of unitary construction vertical twins, joining the 350 cc Twenty One/3TA launched the previous year. The 500 closely followed the lines of its 350 predecessor, there being little to distinguish it mechanically apart from a larger bore, raised gearing and larger-section rear tyre. Over the years the bodywork shrank until the model was discontinued in 1967.
Little is known of the history of TAS, it was purchased by our vendor in March 2007 from a Richard Lewis of Edinburgh and would appear to be an older restoration or an original machine; the mileage shown is 62,939 which could well be correct. The V5C states only three owners from new. Last on the road in 2008 it will require some recommissioning before use.
Sold with the V5C and the 2007 receipt.
