With the introduction of the 149cc Terrier in 1952 Triumph re-entered the market for lightweight commuter machines. A simple, compact, unit-construction four-stroke with four-speed gearbox, the Terrier was joined in 1954 by an enlarged version – the 200cc Tiger Cub – that offered 60mph-plus performance and 100mpg. Popular with younger riders, the Cub underwent continual development during its 16 or so year production run.The history of this machine is not known however a tax disc indicates that it was perhaps last registered for the road in May 1981. It appears to be complete and to original specification in all major respects and is finished in maroon and silver livery. It represents a straightforward recommissioning/restoration project. At the time of cataloguing no registration documents had been located however prospective buyers are advised to check with Bonhams saleroom office regarding updated information on documentation.
