1951 Triumph 499cc TR5 Trophy Project
Registration no. JJW 984
Frame no. 14798NA
Engine no. TR5 14798NA
From the time of its introduction in 1948, the Triumph Trophy was established as a true all-rounder: a machine that could be ridden to work during the week and then, with extraneous components removed, competed on at weekends in its owner's chosen branch of motorcycle sport. Although catalogued primarily as a trials machine, its true forte was scrambles and the ISDT, events in which the power of the tuneable Triumph twin worked to its advantage and its weight was less of a handicap. Equipped from 1955 with a swinging-arm frame, the TR5 remained an extremely competent and stylish roadster until the end of production in 1958. This Lot is a restoration project consisting of various components including main engine castings, crankshaft, frame, forks (with accident damage), fuel tank, BTH magneto, two gearboxes and rear number plate. Accompanying paperwork comprises the original old-style logbook and old/current Swansea V5/V5C documents. Sold strictly as viewed. No reserve.
