1955 Triumph T100 (Tiger 100) Old Classic Motorcycles

1955 Triumph Tiger 100 T100 Vintage Classic Retro

The T100 was created as the sports version of the ubiquitous Speed Twin and from the very start the Turner twins were blessed with an engaging, tractable motor and a chassis which made strong men break out in a cold sweat. No sooner had Turner tweaked the Speed Twin to produce the 100mph Tiger than development engineer Freddie Clarke took the honours in experiencing the first high-speed, lock-to-lock steering weave. That’s what you get if you build a 500 twin which weighs just 350lb… and it would take Triumph about three decades of gradual refinement to resolve the problem.
