1960 Triumph 490cc T100A Project
Registration no. 140 GNY
Frame no. 15990
Engine no. 15990
Introduced for the 1960 season, the Tiger 100A was the sports version of Triumph's first unit-construction 500 twin, the 5TA, and like the rest of the Triumph range featured 'bathtub' rear enclosure. A raised compression ratio and 'hotter' cams helped the Tiger to a top speed in the region of 90mph, while the retention of a single carburettor meant that fuel economy did not suffer unduly, a gallon of fuel lasting for around 80 miles of restrained riding. This example, which retains its rear enclosure and matching engine/frame numbers, was supplied new via Peter Smith Motors of Bridgend, Glamorgan and appears to have spent its entire life in Wales. We are advised that the machine has been in dry storage for many years and that the engine was running and sounding healthy only a couple of years ago. Offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed, the machine comes with its original old-style logbook.
