Every Triumph enthusiasts knows that the Bonneville owes its name to record-breaking successes on the eponymous salt flats, but how many are aware that the machine which set a new 650cc production machine record of over 147mph in 1958 was a Tiger 110 equipped with twin carburettors? A development of the Thunderbird tourer, the T110 prototype performed brilliantly in the 1953 ISDT, thus providing the production version - launched later that year - with invaluable publicity. The first Triumph with swinging-arm rear suspension, the T110 came with a revised engine incorporating a stronger crankshaft, high-compression pistons, larger inlet valves and 'hotter' cams. The T110 remained in production into 1961, one of the most important developments along the way being the introduction on this model for 1956 of the aluminium-alloy 'Delta' high-compression cylinder head, which increased power and pushed the T110's top speed towards 120mph.

This substantially original and un-restored Triumph T110 'barn find' was first registered to the deceased owner on 6th February 1957. The odometer reading is 46,488 miles, which may well be the distance covered from new. Offered for restoration, the machine comes with its original old-style logbook and is sold strictly as viewed. A wonderful opportunity for the serious Triumph restorer/collector.
