1964 Triumph 500cc T100SS 'Norman Hyde' Café Racer
Registration no. not registered (see text)
Frame no. H26678
Engine no. T100SS H26678
Introduced for 1960, the Tiger 100A was the first sports version of Triumph's unitary construction 500 twin, the 5TA. The T100A's replacement, the Tiger 100SS built between 1961 and 1970, featured an abbreviated rear 'bathtub' enclosure in its first incarnation together with larger-diameter wheels and a slightly more powerful engine equipped with coil ignition. By the end of the 1960s, changes to the Tiger 100 had included an improved frame with stiffened top tube, 12-volt electrics (along with the rest of the twins) and the adoption of a twin-leading-shoe front brake.

This T100SS café racer is believed to incorporate performance parts supplied by Norman Hyde, the former Triumph development engineer and world record-holding drag-racer. The engine appears to have been converted to magneto ignition, the mag mounted where the points housing would have been, while other noteworthy features include alloy wheel rims; clip-on 'bars, rear-set footrests; an alloy fuel tank; and what looks like a Grimeca double-sided front brake. The machine is offered with a Certificate of Permanent Export; an old-style V5 (1992); and a photocopy of a later V5. It should be noted that the registration 'ART 283B' is not listed in the HPI database and thus is no longer associated with this motorcycle.
