The final phase of Triumph twin development began in 1972 with the first appearance of the enlarged-to-750cc version of the Bonneville, the increase in bore size necessitating a new crankcase. Other improvements included a ten-stud cylinder head, triplex primary chain, stronger transmission, and disc front brake. A five-speed gearbox was standard equipment on the newcomer, which was also offered in single-carburettor configuration as the 'Tiger 750'. Easier to keep in tune than the twin-carburettor Bonnie, the Tiger gave little, if anything, away in actual on-the-road performance and was more economical too. Formerly a Military Police mount, this Tiger 750 is an ex-MoD machine that was registered '39 AX 20' while in military service. Currently displaying a total of 14,150 miles on the odometer, the Tiger is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed (the engine turns over but with little compression). Offered with 1987 Bristol & West Motor Auction Limited receipt and invoice, an expired 1988 test certificate, and MOD Form 666 'Certificate of Transfer – Ex Government Vehicle'
