1968 Triumph T100C

When I bought my first T100 back in the early I instantly fell in love. I had riding Bonneville’s for years but all of a the ‘Baby Bonnie’ was for me, the perfect It was light, nimble, loved to and was just too much fun to ride.

The was everything I loved about my and less…less being more

A good friend, who was also a fan, took my little for a ride one day…five hours he brought it back. He too loved the size and the lighter weight but got him was how the little 500 loved revving. Tim and I had ridden Triumph ‘Desert years back and he still had one of his and it occasionally but now, he wanted a 500 to in vintage races.

A month give or take a few days, Tim up at my house aboard a pretty T100C, Triumphs scrambler of the T100R. Knobby tyres, exhaust pipes on one side, carb and wider bars…looked a lot of fun to me. Tim let me take it for a ride, I brought it in less than 5 hours, and was in love again. The bikes so different, but so much the same.

Both T100′s love to rev but the ‘C’ a little less so than the ‘R’ but the ‘C’ had low and mid range power which it more of a ‘dual sport’ The single carb motor was and torquey, and the brakes were as good as my Daytona model.

Cycle magazine the T100C a good review it was equally good on tight trails and in sand. Tim did eventually it down, the bike went 350 lbs down to a svelte 290 and became a better ‘sled’ than his

1970 Triumph T100R 500

This is a motorbike that Brit Bike lover to own at one time in his or her life. The Triumph Daytona, aka…the ‘Baby The T100R is actually so much than just a ‘Baby trust me on this one.

Over the years I have a few Bonneville’s; 650′s and 750′s, but one Daytona 500 and that is the one I miss the When I first got my little I took it straight over to the Triumph mechanic I knew to get it and running right…Jack Hately. the bike had sat outside for quite a the carbs needed to be rebuilt, the gone through, tires and replaced.

The work on the T100R more than the bike. and I even considered the repainting One other thing Jack was getting a stock Triumph to replace the JC Whitney models were on the bike. With faith in Mr. Hately I found a set of in my step dads pile of parts bikes and handed over to Jack for the final up.

Two weeks and a lot of money later, I away from Jack’s with a huge grin on my a very pissed off wife at the checkbook.

Calling the Daytona a Bonneville’ is almost an insult to the The Bonneville is a spectacular motorcycle no but…the Daytona is lighter, handling, more rev happy and was the Triumph 500 to push past the Top speed was right around

Different the Bonneville, yes. More fun the Bonneville, without a doubt!

I rode that Triumph everyday. It started easily, was (around 350lbs), and would on a dime and give you nine change. At that time, for me, it was a perfect motorbike.

Sadly, three years later, decided that they the Daytona more than me and it from my garage.

I found a little T100R Daytona morning on ebay that make a very easy project. A 1970 model 22K miles on the clock and really needs a few things to be perfect. Get the mufflers! The bike will run so smoother and don’t forget the style pill box air cleaners.

it a good paint job or don’t about the looks and just the wheels off it.
