In a sorry state when purchased by the current owner in 1989, this T100SS was lovingly restored from the ground upwards over the following ten years. The engine has been rebuilt with a reground crankshaft and new bearings, pistons, valve guides, springs, etc. All needle roller bearings in the gearbox have been renewed and the rest of the transmission refurbished with a new clutch basket, cush centre, final drive sprocket and chains. New bearings were fitted to the hubs, and the wheels rebuilt with stainless spokes and new Akront alloy rims. The electrics have been fully rewired and upgraded with a single-phase power box voltage regulator, while the stock ignition has been replaced with a Boyer Bransden electronic system complete with dual-output coil. Flashing indicators have been fitted and the instruments refurbished. The engine mounting brackets and fasteners, wheel spindles, chain adjusters and exhaust roses are stainless steel, while the exhaust pipes and silencers are new. The machine is currently fitted with a 1970s Craven Clipper fairing, which can easily be removed if required. Only 996 miles have been covered since the Triumph returned to the road and it is said to go as good at it looks. Taxed and MoT'd to 2015, the machine comes with V5C registration document.
- The Frame and Engine numbers are T100S H65008.
