In late '54 Triumph built 130 rigid race framed alloy T100 dirt track bikes for the American market. This is number 111 of those built. I have been collecting parts for this for about 20 years and have had a lot of work done. All of the hard to find and rare parts are there, needs assembly and paint and you could have a rare Triumph factory built race bike. I'm asking $9500 and there is that much of value in the rare parts alone. Email or message for more details or ask the questions here and I'll try and answer all that I can.

This is a matching engine and frame numbers machine. Vern Fuston has straightened and made all repairs to the frame and then it was sandblasted and primered. It has an OEM 20" front rim with most of the center line paint still remaining along with a NOS OEM chrome spool hub and useable used set of spokes. It has the ultra rare H380 top yoke w/ 7/8" bar clamps. The BTH TT manual advance racing magneto has been restored by Doug Wood. Also included is the very hard to find Vokes oil filter and correct AMAL 276/ AR/AS dual racing carbs with the race kit dual alloy manifold.Also an original, not reproduction, Dunlop rubber racing seat and a custom made crossover exhaust system made by Raysons Exhaust that just needs finish fitting before chroming. Other items are a new alloy rear fender with braces and a very nice '54/'55 Sport fuel tank in primer ready for paint. Oh, and lets not forget the GP/race kit tach drive with a Smiths RC126 tach.

Bill: What a super project for someone to take on. I had a 1953 T100C with the factory fitted racing kit. It had the sprung hub at the rear but I had a standard rear wheel for use in hillclimb events.

For it's time that was an amazing engine albeit with a real on or off power band at the top end.


The roadside repairs make for the best post ride stories.

That's pretty dang spiffy right there.

I'd be mighty tempted to build it "as-is", no polishing, painting, etc.

Then blat around scaring people with it...

Yeah its a rare one. A lot of interest just seems a bit of reluctance to take on the work of putting it together.

Not in the title, but he says he is asking $9500 in the first post.

Personally, I'd have the wheels laced up and put some inexpensive decent tires on it, then do whatever it took to make it into a nominal rolling project. The sub-assemblies do not have to be refurbished or overhauled, just cleaned and loosely assembled to mock-up stage. The rare parts are nice on their own, but could add a TON of value to a rolling project.

They fetch MUCH more than basket cases.

...barely-running project bikes fetch more than rolling non-runners.

...and so on...
