Triumph's first 350cc vertical twin had been built for military purposes in wartime and would form the basis for a civilian version when hostilities ceased. The basic engine design followed that laid down pre-war by Edward Turner for the trend-setting Speed Twin but featured rocker boxes incorporated into the cylinder head casting and a built-up crankshaft with one piece connecting rods like the military 3TW. The running gear was essentially that of the Speed Twin and featured Triumph's new telescopic front fork. Lower geared than its 500cc sibling, the 3T was nevertheless capable of reaching 75mph and could return around 80mpg. This 3T was purchased at Netley Marsh autojumble in 2010 as a restoration project and restored by the vendor in 2012, when work carried out included an engine overhaul, a repaint and fitting a new magneto. Running recently but not ridden on the road, the machine is described as in generally very good condition. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered without reserve.
