1939 Triumph T100 Tiger — Pre-War 500cc
Bronze Cylinder Head
1939 Triumph T100 Tiger Pre-War 500cc. This is an extremely rare example of the 1939 T 100 with bronze cylinder head. The Tiger 100 (T100) was a standard motorcycle first made by the British motorcycle company, Triumph, in 1939. Production ceased when the Triumph factory was destroyed by German bombing in 1940 during World War II but recommenced in 1946.
This looks to be an older restoration in nice usable condition with correct engine and frame numbers. This Triumph has recently had an engine rebuild by specialist engineers in Germany. The build includes Carilla rods, new pistons, big end bearings, etc. This complete engine rebuild was in 2021 and now it’s covered 1,000 km.
The bike has been in a collection in Germany for most of its life where it was used and maintained regularly. Comes with a good file of Germany history.
These are very rare and even rarer with the bronze head, so be quick. A fantastic investment, this beautiful Triumph T 100 looks great and runs great!
A true investment piece with its history and limited production with the bronze head!
