1956 Triumph 200cc Tiger Cub
Registration no. AAS 872
Frame no. T25967
Engine no. T2063439
In 1953 the Triumph range was extended with the introduction of a new model - the T20 Tiger Cub. First shown at the Earls Court Show, it was announced as the sports or 'Tiger' version of the Terrier and, in common with other sports versions of the Meridian line up, was liveried in blue. The first British road test of the Cub in Motor Cycling magazine of October 1955 gave it a glowing report, with its top speed of 66.7 mph and a fuel consumption of 136 mpg at 30 mph. Other performance figures were equally satisfying and thus the legend of the Tiger Cub was born. This unusual Plunger frame model is presented in show condition, the vendor reporting that since being purchased from Bonhams and Brooks 15 November Harrogate auction in 2001 the machine has been extensively improved mechanically and appearance wise. It is offered with a V5, old style log book, a current MOT certificate and road fund licence.
