When manufacturing resumed in 1946 after the war, the Triumph model range was, in common with other makers, necessarily limited, and there were only two 500cc twins, as well as the 3T, in the range. With the drive for exports in full flow during the 1940s, Triumph felt the pressure from their distributors in USA for larger capacity machines. The result of this was the introduction of the 650cc Thunderbird in 1949. Although the Thunderbird temporarily stemmed the US cries for capacity, these soon turned to performance. Whilst this was partially addressed with the race kit tuning parts for the T100, Edward Turner, ever mindful of his valuable US marketplace, set about the task. The outcome was the 650cc Tiger 110, which was introduced for 1954, and incorporated the swinging arm frame, plus a tuned motor. Capable of 110 mph, the new Tiger was well received in its target market, and used in competition by many. In 1956, the Tiger was further improved by the addition of the alloy cylinder head. The 110 remained much the same, with only minor detail changes, until the year of this machine.

Purchase by the deceased owner prior to 1978, it has been partly restored. Some of the paintwork has been renewed, and some items have been re-chromed. The engine appears untouched except for removal of the carburettor and dynamo. The majority of the important components appear to be present, and the T110 represents an ideal opportunity for a new owner to complete the work. Documentation consists of an old-type V5.
