Every Triumph enthusiasts knows that the Bonneville owes its name to record-breaking successes on the eponymous Utah salt flats, but how many are aware that the machine which set a new 650cc production class 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. Triumph's top sports roadster until the Bonneville's arrival in 1959, 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. Dating from the first year of production, this restored 1954 Triumph T110 comes with a selection of pre- and post-restoration photographs; an original Triumph Workshop Instruction Manual; and a Haynes Owners Workshop Manual. There is no registration document with this Lot and it should be noted that the HPI record for the VRN displayed does not relate to this particular machine nor the physical frame and engine numbers.
