Introduced in September 1958, the 5TA Speed Twin was the second of Triumph's new family of unitary construction vertical twins, joining the 350cc Twenty One/3TA launched the previous year. The 500 closely followed the lines of its 350 predecessor, there being little to distinguish it mechanically apart from a larger bore, raised gearing and larger-section rear tyre. Restored in 2001, this matching-numbers Speed Twin has been in the current owner's possession for the last 18 years and was last on the road in 2004, since when it has been dry stored. Expired MoTs on file issued between 1996 and 2004 show the recorded mileage increasing from 8,692 to 10,360, a total of only 1,668 miles in eight years. The current odometer reading is 10,365. Described as in generally good/fair condition, the machine is offered with the aforementioned MoTs and V5C registration document. Re-commissioning and the customary safety checks will be required before further use.
