Originally an export model, this T100C was purchased as an engine-less and unregistered rolling chassis in 1996 and rebuilt from the ground upwards between 1998 and 2006 using the best materials available. The T100R engine has been rebuilt with a reground and balanced crankshaft and a new sludge trap. Other parts renewed include the bearings, cylinder barrels, 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 and Triumph Adventurer instruments have been fitted, together with a new headlight. The engine mounting brackets and fasteners, wheel spindles, chain adjusters, handlebars, mudguards and exhaust roses are all stainless steel, while the exhaust pipes and silencers are new. 'TTU 208H' is taxed and MoT'd to 2015 and said to go as good at it looks. The machine is offered with Triumph Owners Club dating certificate and V5C registration document. The refurbished original instruments are included in the sale.
