1957 Triumph T110
The Triumph T110 was first seen at the Paris salon in October 1953 and was the first Triumph to feature swinging arm rear suspension. It was the sports version of the Triumph Thunderbird. The Triumph Tiger 110 came with a higher compression ratio of 8:1, modified porting, new camshaft and a larger Amal 289 carburettor. It was called the ‘110’ because it had been tested at 110 mph, extremely rapid for a motorbike at the time.
Our bike, a 1957 model with matching frame and engine numbers, has just been restored by a local restorer. He has a meticulous approach and has been right through the bike replacing or restoring every part as necessary. The result is a stunning looking motorcycle which runs and rides as if it were new.
We have a file of invoices for some of the parts that were used in the restoration, some were from the restorer’s own stock of parts. We also have photographs detailing the work that was carried out.
This is an opportunity to buy an investment grade motorcycle.
