Same design as the Triumph Terrier, the only Triumph to be fitted with plunger suspension and very advanced for the day being of unit construction. A later exhaust pipe has been fitted because it has a bracket bolted to the engine mount to give more support which was never fitted originally. It’s also fitted with a solo sprung seat making the ride more comfortable.
TR6 Trophy Special 1969 model totally rebuilt as original, only exception are stainless fasteners . I can’t claim credit for the build, it was already done when I bought it . The only thing I needed to do was to change the handlebars. Regularly ridden .
Since my brother Roger Benge former member of your club passed away this is my first restoration project. My first bike at the age of 16 was a tiger cub and rebuilt by roger. I think he would be pleased with my efforts.
I have owned this bike since 2007. This is a 1970 uk version of the T120 and the last year with an external oil tank. Recently it has undergone a substantial overhaul from the crankshaft up which has been reground and balanced and attention given to many details during the rebuild. It was originally points ignition but a Pazon Altair electonic ignition has been fitted.
This Tiger Cub has been in our family for years and has been owned by both my brothers Richard and Chas. It’s a great bike and we have all enjoyed riding it . A few years ago Richard suggested that we should restore the Cub back to original specification. After a number of years and also restoring Richards Thruxton in between, the Cub is now finished. I got it running a few weeks ago and was desperate to get it to the bike shows . You rarely see many Cubs at shows . Hope you like it cheers Greg
Complete rebuild in the US, from a basket case, over the last 3 years. I had a lot of help from Jaye Strait at Britech New England. Jaye rebuilt the engine, I did most of the other restoration, down to powder coating the frame. Matching frame and engine. Not quite original, for example, electronic ignition. And the tank needs a little more work – I thought the rattle can paint was petrol proof – it wasn’t.
I have owned the bike since 2004 which was partially
restored by the previous owner after being re-imported from the U.S. around
I have taken the bike on 2 tours of France with the club covering approximately 1000 miles on each tour. Over the years I have corrected a number of issues with the bike and it is now running exceptionally well apart from being stabled due to the lockdown. It is a great bike to ride and is light and very fast with exceptional acceleration up to 60 mph for 500cc.
