1957 Triumph 200cc Tiger Cub Project
Frame no. T 27855
Engine no. T20 27855
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 (as the Bantam Cub) 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 incomplete, matching-numbers Tiger Cub is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. A standard fuel tank comes with it. There are no documents with this Lot, which is sold without reserve.
