The favourable duty rates for machines under 150cc in capacity encouraged many manufacturers to develop machines for this class. Triumph's first had been the two-stroke Model X, which was followed for 1933 by the four-stroke XO. The latter featured an inclined overhead-valve engine and three-speed gearbox, housed in a conventional duplex-loop frame. Lightweight, economical and with a top speed of 47mph, it should have been just what commuters wanted but lasted for only a couple of years, latterly as the XO5/1 (standard) and XO5/5 (four-speed). Believed an older restoration, this incomplete Model XO is offered for further renovation and sold strictly as viewed. Accompanying paperwork consists of a V5C document and an HPI printout listing the engine number as 'EWA735XO'.
