Frame no. T90 H35508

Triumph re-entered the 350cc class in 1957 with the introduction of the Twenty One, its first unit-construction model, and quickly followed up with a 500cc version. The latter was first to undergo the 'sports' treatment - in the form of the Tiger 100SS - the equivalent 350 not appearing for another five years. Launched in October 1962, the Tiger 90 featured a tuned engine equipped with a revised ignition system that used points instead of the previous distributor. The 'baby' Tiger looked smart and went well too, top speed under favourable conditions being a genuine 90mph. Periodically revised and updated, the Tiger 90 remained a fixture of the Triumph range until 1968.

Finished in correct-for-the-year gold/white livery, this well presented Tiger 90 is presented in generally good condition, starting easily and running well when viewed recently. The machine is offered with Mot/tax to June 2010 and Swansea V5.
