In 1959, Trimph launched themselves into the world of scooters with the Tigress. With a Turner designed 250cc, 4 stroke twin engine. Also sold under the BSA-Sunbeam brand, Triumph were not quick to act on sales potential and floundered in the market, even though it was deemed a worthy machine for those that could get one.
Formally part of a private collection of motorcycles, this pretty example of a Tigress has had a concours restoration. This Tigress was purchased for a Museum in July of 2010 and was on public display for around 10 years. A Vintage Motor Scooter Club dating certificate is present with the machine as well as an old-style V5C and an expired Tax Disc, dated '1967'. It is being offered at 'no reserve'.
