£4500 - £5000


1978 Triumph T140E Tiger 750, 744cc. Registration number TAO 657S. Frame number T140E EX 08704. Engine number T140E EX 08704.

Essentially identical to the Bonneville, the Tiger 750 ran one carburetor instead of the Bonnie's two, make for a little less fussy operation and better fuel mileage. Stylistically, the new side panels and bold paint schemes, easily distinguished the new Bonneville from the previous 1976-1977 models. As a sidenote, one of the new finishes, Tawny Brown and Gold was met with limited enthusiasm in the US, and some 480 units were sent back to the UK by TMA.
This US example was brought back to the UK in 2020 and appears to be in good condition with some 15,000 on the clock. It appears unrestored and to be in original condition.
Running recently, we would always recommend safety checks before road use.

Sold with the V5C.
