Lot 394: 1938 Triumph 249cc Tiger 70
Edward Turner’s arrival at Triumph in 1936 resulted in extensive improvements to the range. A brilliant stylist, Turner transformed the Val Page-designed overhead-valve singles by adopting sports-specification engines, high level exhausts, chromed fuel tanks and a new name: ‘Tiger’. Frames, forks, engines and gearboxes were all improved for 1937, and a trio of randomly selected Tigers successfully completed a series of arduous speed trails to secure the Maudes Trophy for Triumph later in the year. This sporting-looking Tiger 70 is fitted with trials tyres, rubber saddle, alloy mudguards and high-level exhaust. The machine is offered without documents.
