Post-WW2, Triumph dropped their earlier 'singles' and based the range on developments of the pre-war ohv 'Speed Twin'. This turned out to be a wise policy and the Triumph brand became linked with torquey, reliable and powerful twins until the end of Meriden production in the 1970s. Introduced in 1954, the 'Tiger 110' was the sportier 650 of the range, a handsome machine which was very well-received, soon becoming affectionately known as the 'Tiger Ton-Ten', reflecting both its speed and official name. The alloy head/ iron cylinder combination allowed tuning to give much more power from the pre-unit configuration when compared to the older, all-iron, 'Thunderbird' and was teamed with brighter chrome wheels as part of the improvements for the 1956 season and fitted with a necessarily larger front brake for 1957. First registered in September 1958, 5442 NW spent many years on display in the Saddleworth Museum and was sold by Bonhams in October 2013. Now in very good condition and to original specification in Triumph's traditional blue, showing 14,440 miles on the clock, the late vendor having both re-commissioned the Tiger and carried out many improvements. Last taxed it for the road in 2014 and offered with a V5C, an accompanying RF60 Logbook and sundry documents, it should require only minor recommissioning before a season's riding.
