1946 Triumph 349cc 3T
Registration no. to be advised
Frame no. TC 10901
Engine no. 47 3T 84664 S/C
Triumph's first 350cc vertical twin had been built for military purposes in wartime, and would form the basis for a civilian version when hostilities ceased. The basic engine design followed that laid down pre-war by Edward Turner for the trend-setting Speed Twin, but featured rocker boxes incorporated into the cylinder head casting and a built-up crankshaft with one piece connecting rods like the military 3TW. The running gear was essentially that of the Speed Twin and featured Triumph's new telescopic front fork. Lower geared than its 500cc sibling, the 3T was nevertheless capable of reaching 75mph and could return around 80mpg. Unlike the later unit 350, the 3T possessed a measure of the low-down 'grunt' associated with Triumph's larger vertical twins and is arguably a much more pleasant and characterful machine to ride as a result.

This Triumph 3T was restored around 2003, including replacing the front forks. Unused for some years, the machine will require re-commissioning to a greater or lesser extent before further use, and it should be noted that the headlamp is missing. There are V5C and RF60 documents in existence; however, neither lists the present frame number. Accordingly, the machine is offered without documents. The vendor hopes to update the frame number with the DVLA prior to sale, following which the documents may be repatriated.
