Lot Details
1959 Triumph 199cc T20 Tiger Cub
Registration no. DSX 701
Frame no. T 56392
Engine no. T.20 56392
Triumph had produced small machines pre-war, but it was only in 1953 that they re-entered this market with the T15 150cc 'Terrier', a plunger-sprung lightweight with a new ohv engine unit. Felt to be only partially successful, this was up-engined in 1954 as the start of the well-regarded T20 'Tiger Cub' series. Over time, the 'Cub' was developed into a well-mannered road machine, with a much improved, swinging-arm, chassis from late 1956. Interest in the model remains strong today with excellent spares back-up. This T20 example is in good condition and should only require the normal checks and re-commissioning following museum collection display. It is complete with a V5, some papers and a Triumph MCC dating certificate.
