The Triumph Tiger 100 was Triumph's performance bike for 1947. With the runaway success of the Triumph Speed Twin, Edward Turner's mind turned to further developing the potential of his new parallel twin motor. The lighter and more powerful Tiger 100 was developed as a sports enthusiast's machine, where as with previous models the '100' referred to its claimed maximum speed.
In 2007 award winning Triumph restorer, Jonnie Green, purchased this bike in Santa Barbara, CA from its long time owner. He in turn sold the bike to us in 2012. The bike was very complete and in excellent condition, but was in need of a restoration in order to be competitive at the highest level. Green began restoration of the bike in 2013 and it was completed in the summer of 2014. This T100 is fitted with Triumph's (r)evolutionary Sprung-Hub rear suspension, which was an option at the time.
