I'm looking any for info or pics related to the early T100/R and T100/RR dirt track racers. Anyone know anything about these? I'm building something very similar and would like to know more about them. Thanks

I'm still looking for more info on these bikes. Specifically, the T100/RR. I recently found a tank and the special steel front spool. I would REALLY like to see pics of the cylindrical oil tank and the gas tank mounts if anyone has some.

Do you have last month's (October) issue of The Classic Motorcycle? There's an article on a T100RR.

My father John does restorations and completed a 1955 Triumph T100/R several years gathering all the proper pieces to do a 100 point restoration. If you go to J&M Enterprises site www.jmentp.com there is contact information and pictures of the bike on the website.
My father and Grandfather where Triumph dealers (Bauer Cycles, NJ)from '53-'83 and have over 50 years Triumph tuning and restoration experience.

The above black and white picture is a 1957 T100/R and the white and blue tank is a 1957. There are some differences between the 1955 and 1957 bikes.
