The introduction of the Twenty One in 1957 ushered in Triumph's unitary construction era. Readily distinguishable by its 'bathtub' rear enclosure and Shell Blue metallic finish, the newcomer was renamed 3TA in September 1958. "One of the swiftest standard British-made 350cc roadsters tested by Motor Cycling, the Triumph Twenty One combines an untiring zest for high-speed cruising with safe handling and a remarkably economical fuel consumption," reported the 'Green 'Un'. Consisting of a 1958 frame and 1960 engine, this 3TA has been modified to accept a modern disc-braked front end, while other changes from stock include alloy wheel rims and alloy engine plates. Last taxed in 2013, the Triumph will require re-commissioning or possibly more extensive restoration before further use and thus is sold strictly as viewed. The machine is offered with a V5C document and HPI printout.
