    Interested in a Triumph Tigress?

    Hope this is OK to post here.

     

    One of my mates father died recently, and, as part of the estate there is a Triumph Tigress scooter, actually a Sunbeam, but it's only the colour that is different.

    My mate is not really interested in keeping it, so if anyone is interested, I can put you in contact with him.

    His Dad was heavily into older collectors' item type bikes.

    The scooter is a going concern, and, from the other bikes that his Dad owned, I'd expect it to be in very good nick.

    Obviously, it was on Hysterical plates.

    It is the 250cc twin cylinder 4 stroke model.

    The scooter is in the Carlingford/Beecroft area of Sydney.

    While, as I said, I believe it to be a goer, I'm not sure how much of a test ride can be done legally, because of the complications of the club plate being in the name of my mate's Dad.

    It is still, AFAIK, still for sale.

    I don't have pictures handy, as it isn't mine.

    It belongs to a friend of mine, who was left it by his father.

    Now my mate isn't a club member to be able to get Historic plate for it, but I believe he has been starting it up occasionally, and it is a going concern, although unregistrered.

    It is in the Carlingford area, and is actually the two tone cream/brown Sunbeam....other than colour, identical to the Tigress.

    I've seen the beast and it looked in pretty good nick to me.
