I ride a T110. 37 years ago, I rode into Eugene, Oregon on a '69 Bonny in early summer of 1977. I ran into a cabbie who lived over the garage at his girl friend's mother's house. He was building the T110. The motor had been built by Jim Robb in Springfield, and was waiting for payment to be picked up. The rest of it was in boxes. I traded him my title for his bill of sale. He raced a couple of Sportsters with my Bonny and won the money to get the motor paid for. I spent the rest of the... (read more)

I bought my t110 in 1962. It was the 59 model, in my opinion the best incarnation of all. It had the alloy cylinder head, full width front brake and the new chrome tank badge, coupled with the new livery of silver and black paint it was a joy to behold.
The performance was second to none, 3 of my friends had BSA road rockets and they could not get near the acceleration of the triumph. I also out accelerated a couple of bonnevilles which quite surprised me at the time.
Something I found quite... (read more)

The Triumph Tiger 110 649 cc single carb gave good fuel economy, easy to maintain by owner-rider. Known as the single carb 'bonnie' later models had a cradle frame which greatly improved the handling. In the 60's they were often refured to as the 'instant whip' after a food prodict of the same name, due to the fact the single downtube frame used to flex when cornering. T110's could just about out perform a BSA Road Rocket in a straight line but lost it round bends, there was a lot of... (read more)

Had 2x 110s at different times. 1st, swapped a running James Captain 197cc in good condition for a crashed basket case 1957 T110 at Billy Briggs bike shop Salford. Put that together & ran it - but as a schoolboy not exactly affordable. Very quick machine. Swapped it for a Triumph Sports Cub that was affordable.
2nd machine was a 1959 T110 - bought from a friend. Done up to include - Clip ons, rear swept pipes, Bonneville style headlight, 10.5:1 pistons, E3134 cams & racing followers,... (read more)

Sunday 160406: now aged 69 years, my mind travels back to yesteryear with a fondness, recalling ownership of many cars and motorcycles. How very selective is memory! I bought a second-hand ''Triumph Tiger 110 ''of Lloyd's Garage, Stourport-on-Severn for £70:00 in 1962 complete with AVON half-fairing. I rode it home some 3 miles and was bitterly disappointed with the machine's performance - until I quickly replaced the spark-plugs with new Champion N3A's. During ensuing hard-riding I found...

The Triumph Tiger 110 was THE bike to own in 1954. Combined with outstanding fuel economy came outstanding performance. The only faster bikes were the Vincent 1,000s at considerably more expense and their manufacture had ceased.
The claimed brake horse power from its twin-cylinder engine was 42 at 6,500 RPM which figure could well have been a flash reading on the factory's dynamometer as the 110's top speed and acceleration was not ALL that better than the Triumph Tiger 100 at a nominal 500... (read more)
