Full Description

Edward Turner’s pretty little Tiger Cub was launched to the public at the Earls Court Show in 1953. Its 199cc dry sump engine was a 4-stroke, making it unusual amongst its Villiers and BSA 2-stroke powered competition.

Based on the 150cc Triumph T15 Terrier, early models retained the Terrier’s plunger rear suspension frame, as on this machine which dates from 1955. Appearing to be in original and unmolested condition, it was recently imported from Norway and has now been UK registered with a V5C.
