Tiger Cub-mounted Roy Peplow's landmark 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 of the Tiger Cub 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. Towards the end of production, dealers Comerford's Ltd of Thames Ditton - a firm with a keen interest in off-road motorcycle sport - purchased a batch of Mountain Cubs and converted them to 'works replica' trials specification. The machine offered here is one of only 47 originally converted in this way by Comerford's, of which approximately 25 are known to survive. There is a Triumph Owners Motor Cycle Club letter on file confirming that this is a genuine Comerford's Cub. 'TPL 266F' has recently been sympathetically re-commissioned including a bottom-end engine rebuild with new big-end and main bearings (receipts on file). It retains the original Comerford's fuel tank with stopper; however, the silencer is a new replica purchased at considerable cost. Ridden in trials very recently, the machine is described as in good original condition for its age and comes with Swansea V5C document and an old (1975) tax disc used to retrieve the original registration number.

Saleroom notices

  • The machine is now fitted with the correct type of silencer, not the one as illustrated in the catalogue photograph.
