1958 Triumph T100C style 500cc “street scrambler” Here is a very nicely restored unit Triumph 500cc, built in the style of a T100C or T100SC. The bike starts very easily on modern direct electronic ignition system (no battery). Lights work direct also, but I think if you were planning a lot of night time use fitting a battery may be the best way for ward as the lights to dim down when the engine speed drops to tick-over. The engine sounds great, no strange noises and good crisp exhaust note and excellent performance with no smoke. Gears and clutch are all spot on, brakes are excellent, especially the front which is amazing for a single leader. Smith's repro speedometer is working well. The bike handles beautifully and performance is superb, really brisk acceleration. The bike is registered as an historic vehicle (free road tax & MOT exempt). An up to date V5C with registration number 862XVY (cannot be transferred to another vehicle). Date of registration is 10th Jan 1958. Frame number H3545, engine number 5TA H19328, these numbers match V5C doc. Cosmetically the bike is in beautiful all round condition. The enamel on the frame in excellent and of high quality. Tank and side panels have very good paintwork also. The tank is as clean as a whistle inside and has not been linered. Rims and spokes are all as new. Beautiful chrome rims and rustless type (plates spokes and stainless nipples. Front tyre is an as new MITAS 3.25 x 19 Rear tyre is an as new Dunlop K70 4.00 x18 There is no fin damage on the engine.
