£3000 - £4000


1965 Triumph Tiger 100, 500cc. Registration number HWE 6C. Frame number SH 40491. Engine number T100SS H 40491.
This model created a new evolution of sports machines which would last for eight years, and was the first C class machine not to debut with the bathtub fairing. Instead the UK model had the new 'bikini' fairing, a separate chrome headlamp rather than the nacelle, and a slim front mudguard rather than the roman helmet design whereas in the US the fairing was dropped altogether. It wasn't until the 1964 model that the UK version lost its fairing.
It was lighter than the T100A that it evolved from which provided increased performance over that model, but over time the bike got heavier until in 1970 it was 161kg; though still lighter than the T100A. One of the causes of this increase in weight was the introduction of a twin leading shoe front drum brake in 1969.
HWE comes only with verbal history, bought new by the preceding owners father in 1965 it was fully restored some 10 years ago but rarely used so it was sold to our vendor in 2018. He had several bikes so rarely rode this one, only replacing the exhaust pipes during his tenure. It has now has mellowed nicely and rides well.
Sold with the V5C.
