Frame no. D32748
Engine no. T20 SR 1001
Trials and scrambles models were early additions to the Tiger Cub range, and in 1959 Cub-mounted works rider Roy Peplow's landmark victory in the Scottish Six Days Trial emphatically demonstrated that lightweights were not only competitive but also capable of winning major events. Brainchild of works rider Jim Alves, the trials version of the Tiger Cub had debuted in 1957 as the T20C and was steadily improved year by year until the Cub range was dropped by BSA-Triumph. The model's competitiveness in Pre-'65 events and the relative scarcity of genuine Trials Cubs has seen a number of road bikes converted in recent years, the example offered here being one such. In fact, the machine offered here consists of a modified BSA Bantam frame and a later T20 SR export-model Tiger Cub engine, the latter dating from circa 1962. There are no documents with this Lot, which is sold strictly as viewed.
