1952 Triumph 499cc Trophy
Registration no. XMK 633
Frame no. 29909
Engine no. TR5 29909
From the time of its introduction in 1948, the Triumph Trophy was established as a true all-rounder: a machine that could be ridden to work during the week and then, with extraneous components removed, competed on at weekends in its owner's chosen branch of motorcycle sport. This matching-numbers (registration, frame, and engine) Trophy has been equipped from new with the factory-optional sprung hub and dual seat. The machine was restored ten years ago, including a full engine rebuild (new bearings, pistons, crankshaft shell-bearing conversion, etc). There are bills on file for works carried out and parts purchased, and the machine also comes with an old-style logbook, a V5C document, and documentation from the previous owner in the 1950s. Ticking all the boxes - fully matching numbers, original specification, restored condition, etc - the Trophy was last run in 2018 and is described by the private vendor as in very good condition throughout.
