Vehicle Description

After a competition win at the 1967 Daytona 200 in Florida with Buddy Elmore on the throttle, Triumph Motorcycles gained much recognition with its first-ever Daytona victory. To commemorate the win, they produced a special race edition for the public called the Daytona Tiger T100R. It would feature the same air-cooled 490cc vertical twin power plant fitted with twin Amal carburetors, 9.0:1 high compression pistons, race cam, and larger valves to produce approximately 42 horsepower. The Daytona Tiger T100R would go on to win again at the Daytona 200 in 1967 with rider Gary Nixon. It proved the enhanced Tiger was a hardened competitor, and could handle average racing speeds for hours at a time!

They were produced from 1967 through early 1974. They were enhanced in 1969 with ball bearing and roller bearing equipment in the bottom end to replace traditional bushings in the valve train to remedy unnecessary wear and oil consumption over time. And by 1973, it was further improved with E3134 racing cams for both inlet & exhaust, strengthened cam followers, valve guides, and performance connecting rods! It is an exciting ride for owners offering exhilarating performance in the higher rpm range, let alone an iconic collector piece from Triumph's 1960's racing career!

Offered here is a 1973 Triumph Daytona 500 T100R finished in Turquoise & Silver with Black vinyl seat. It's presented as a wonderfully kept original with only cosmetic restoration as-needed over the years. It retains its original 490cc air-cooled twin engine and 4-speed constant mesh transmission. Features on the Daytona T100R include telescopic hydraulic front fork with swing arm rear suspension with two coil-over shocks, 8" front/7" rear drum brakes, chrome spoke wheels and Avon Speedmaster MkII tires measuring 3.50S19 up front and 4.00-19 at the rear. Our example includes gas tank knee pads, chrome fenders, turn signals, and twin rearview mirrors.

This unit comes from the former Fort Lauderdale owner with just 2,182 miles showing on the odometer. It was garage kept and only exercised at 2-mile increments along a private airport driveway on a relatively regular basis. It just recently had a new battery installed prior to its arrival at our museum. It continues to start and run with ease! Throttle response is excellent, and shifting through the gears is swift! These high caliber Triumph Daytona 500 T100R are becoming harder to locate. Having the opportunity to ride one is worth the hunt!
