c.1959 Triumph 199cc T20 Tiger Cub
Registration no. LSV 526
Frame no. F4821A
Engine no. T20 87780
Born as the 'Terrier' in 1953, Triumph's new lightweight metamorphosed into the 'Tiger Cub' in 1954 with an increase in capacity to 199cc for its peppy push-rod motor. An immensely popular machine, the T20 'Cub' underwent a number of changes in its career, with the fashionable semi-enclosed frame, as here, debuting in 1957. The property of a deceased estate, LSV 526 is understood to have been extensively re-built mechanically and re-finished, albeit in its late owner's choice of colour, a smart port-wine maroon, last being used in 2009. Complete with V5C, this smart Triumph should be ready for use, after re-commissioning and safety checks following storage.
