Lot Details
1967 Triumph 99cc T 10
Registration no. JOE 882E
Frame no. TS 1730
Engine no. LS 25145
The T 10, Triumph’s lightweight scooter, was a minor success which should have done better. Part of the answer may have been the wholly ‘motor cycle’ ethos of the company’s dealers, unsympathetic to non-motorcyclists. The belt transmission of the T 10 also had a tendency to make pushing the scooter hard work, though the little machine was otherwise light and attractive. This T 10 was bought for the daughter of a Mr. Benfield, an accountant at Triumph and, according to him, was the only one made in this combination of mimosa and ivory. Miss Benfield’s riding career was cut short when she fell off after 179 miles, denting the nearside legshield, and never rode again. The T 10 has not been used since. This unique and well-preserved machine has its RF.60 and old MOTs as well as a V5.
