1955 Triumph Tiger 100 T100 - Original Unrestored For Sale
Reluctantly selling my 1955 Tiger 100. It’s a lovely mostly unrestored example with nice history, matching numbers, original registration and only 3 previous owners, the first of them being Chas E Cope Triumph dealers Coventry. It was registered in January 1955 and a year later it was bought by Mr Hughes of Coventry who kept it for the next 57 years until 2013. I believe that during Mr Hughes’s ownership it was very well looked after and apart from some over painting of the original paint remained mostly unrestored. The next owner only had the bike for a year and carried out re chroming of the original Dunlop rims and wheel rebuild with new Avon tyres. The exhaust systems appear to have been replaced at this time. The bike was then bought by me in 2014.
I have carried out quite a bit of work over the last six years including a full engine rebuild, gearbox rebuild, speedo professionally reconditioned internally, battery and box replacement and halogen bulbs fitted. I have also plumbed in a discrete oil filter and replaced the main stand with a slightly later easier to use one. All the original parts have been kept and it could be put back to standard easily.
The bike starts, rides and stops superbly and is a joy to ride. I have done about 2000 miles on it. To me it is one of the best looking Triumphs with the close finned alloy barrels, polished alloy pre unit chain case, lovely alloy front brake with scoop and of course the signature Triumph nacelle.
One of the nicest things about this bike is the fact that all the fasteners, fittings, clips etc appear to be original. I also believe the seat is original. This is no fully restored, concourse example and is much better for it. It looks like what it is, a 65 year old bike in excellent condition.
Included with the bike are the bills/receipts for the work carried out, buff and tan original log books, a 70’s tax disc, final 2015 tax disc, current V5 and any parts I’ve kept. Please contact me by email for any more photos or information.
