Developed in the immediate post-WW2 years to fulfil British Government contracts for a new military motorcycle, the TRW followed the overall lines of Triumph's trend-setting parallel twins but with the simpler and more easily maintained side valves rather than the civilian models' overhead valves. In keeping with the military's requirements for robustness and simplicity, the TRW retained a rigid frame while featuring Triumph's telescopic front fork as used by many models across the range. Many were offered for sale on the civilian market by the Ministry of Defence when their service life came to an end. This RAF-liveried, spring hub-equipped TRW was acquired by the vendor in August 2004 (purchase receipt on file) and was last MoT'd to 10th August 2007. Described as in generally good/very good condition, the machine is offered with a quantity of old tax discs and MoTs, SORN paperwork, Swansea V5C documents, User Handbook (original) and photocopies of the Technical Handbook and Parts List. A rare opportunity for collectors of military vehicles.
