Triumph Trophy TR5 500cc (1949) For Sale

Registered 23-08-1949 Vin No: 27818 Engine No: TR5 9111704 Reg No: HYG 480 Taxation Class: Historic Vehicle (Tax & MOT Exempt) Production 1949-1958 Engine 498cc OHV four stroke twin Power 25 bhp (19 kW) @ 6000 rpm Triumph announced the TR5 Trophy in November 1948 at the Earls Court Show. The new machine was intended for clubmen riders wishing to compete in off-road events and was based on the machines that the works team had successfully campaigned in trials and the 1948 ISDT. The 500cc engine featured a square alloy barrel taken from the wartime generator engine with early models retaining the cooling shroud bosses cast into the cylinder. However, our model does not have the bosses drilled out so was one of the lucky ones that was never used as a compressor in the Lancaster Bombers. The engine and frame numbers on the TR5 never matched for this reason. The engine and transmission were housed in a new, rigid, frame design that featured a shorter wheelbase than standard. A high level, Siamese, exhaust system and a quickly detachable headlamp were fitted as standard and a range of parts were made available to enable the owner to tailor the machines performance to their chosen discipline. The Triumph Trophy TR5 we are privileged to be offering is 1949 model and still has its original reg number and new style V5 log book. We also have an assortment of old MOTís Tax discs and the original owners manual. Restored about ten years ago to a very high standard. Now presented in very nice condition both in appearance and mechanically. We have only ever come across two TR5ís in the past 40 years and in recent years this model has become virtually extinct. Early TR5ís in original condition such as this one rarely come to the market. An opportunity to acquire one the most coveted Triumphs Motorcycles ever produced at a price that will make an excellent investment also a very useable classic. Once its gone Ė itís gone never to be repeated.
