It Felt Like A Lightweight , Compared To The 50's And 60's Tigers That I Had Ridden And It Felt Even Quicker!

As Rare And Very Desirable ; Everyone Who's Lucky Enough To Own One , Is Obviously Hanging Onto It , As They Know How Good They Are! That's Why You Will See More Vincent's And Brough's For Sale , Than Great Tiger 100 's Like We Have Here ! For This Reason , This Ones Obviously A Great Investment !!
