It is with great regret that I have to sell a long standing friend. I have had this 1952 triumph TRW since 2004 and it has been a good reliable bike. Reason for sale - deteriorating health.

As you will see from the pictures it has been a riders bike. However, there is little or no rust and all parts are working. it has been ridden carefully, never flogged and never run near its top speed. It has been serviced regularly by me.

The bike itself is not a fast bike, it is steady and reliable, 50 mph all day without a cough bike. It was originally commissioned into service with the RAF in 1952 and is built to a war Dept spec. somewhere during its RAF service it acquired a 1959 engine, this was not uncommon in service life and I have a certificate from the triumph owners club confirming this fact and the date of manufacture of both frame and engine.

It was decommissioned in 1968 and ended up as a box of bits in a garage for over 30 years till bought by the previous owner in 2003. Some of the parts disappeared over that time so the new owner had to find things like mudguards and a new petrol tank. He therefore rebuilt it to his own tastes and it came out as a nice looking civilian bike.

To the best of my knowledge the TRW model was never sold to the public, it was a War Dept only spec.

The bike comes with a variety of spares, mostly second hand picked up over the years.

There is a years supply of new OIL, 12L of grade 20 and 10L of grade 50 (DO NOT run this bike on modern multigrade oil, it is not designed for it).
The original “Bum Pad” back seat that bolts to the mudguard. (My wife refused to ride it and I modified the bike to have matching saddles).
S/H brake shoes, (can be relined)
S/H cylinder barrels, pistons and valves
S/H cylinder head (aluminium, can be skimmed to use again)
A chain case cover (looks new)
S/H clutch plates (useable)
Kick start lever
Footrest covers
Various ignition parts
Two primary drive cogs
and a set of engine gaskets (minus the head gasket)
Two or three bottles of petrol treatment so you can use unleaded fuel.

This bike should go to someone who will enjoy a steady ride out, not someone who wants to do the ton, it will most likely out-live the next half a dozen owners.

Be careful where you park it, it will always attract a spectator or two!
