With the introduction of the 149cc Terrier in 1952, Triumph re-entered the market for lightweight commuter machines. A simple, compact, unitary 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. A big success, particularly with younger riders, the Cub underwent continual development for the next 16 years, finally ending up with BSA Bantam cycle parts before being dropped in 1970. The model remains a favourite with today's collectors, many of whom would have commenced their riding career on a Cub, and is well served by an extensive network of parts suppliers and other specialists.

This example was acquired by the current (lady) vendor in 1995 and since then has undergone 'rolling restoration', benefiting from new piston rings, a re-spoked rear wheel, and various other mechanical works and replacement parts. Dry stored for several years, it is offered in running condition and comes with Swansea V5.
