Tiger Cub-mounted Roy Peplow's victory in the 1959 Scottish Six Days Trial demonstrated that lightweights were not only competitive but also capable of winning major events. Brainchild of works rider Jim Alves, the trials version had debuted in 1957 as the T20C and was steadily improved year by year until the Cub range was dropped by BSA-Triumph in 1967. The model's competitiveness in Pre-'65 events and the relative scarcity of genuine Trials Cubs has seen a number of road bikes converted for trials use in recent years; the example offered here being one such. Consisting of a frame dating from circa 1960 and a later (circa 1964) engine, the machine was acquired in September 2001 and comes with the purchase receipt and an information sheet. There is no registration document with this motorcycle, which is described by the vendor as in generally good condition. A spare fuel tank is included in the sale.
